As Kodak attempts to reinvent its business model, the film and entertainment product group serves dual roles. First, it funds investment in the digital capture and printing technologies that will determine the firm's profit and growth potential. Second, although basic film is a terminal product category, the division is unlikely to disappear as assets are repurposed for industrial uses such as printed circuit boards and touch screen films.
So there is some machinery in common between film production, circuit board production and touch screen production.
This is very interesting for the long term viability of film, because it means that even if production had to diminish to very low levels, the machines wouldn't be scrapped and, one day, could be used again to produce film. Actually that even means that circuit board producers and touch screen producers are potential future film manufacturers.
The decline of film can be reversed, there isn't a "no-return" point.
