Canon to showcase its extensive and innovative 8K and 4K imaging ecosystem at ISE 2020

15 January 2020, London, UK – Canon Europe today announces it will be showcasing a new dimension of its business to visitors at ISE 2020 – the world’s largest AV systems integration show. Visitors to the stand will have the chance to see its advanced imaging ecosystem which includes Canon’s incredible HDR, 4K and 8K projection capabilities and unrivalled line-up of input to output solutions, including world-class cameras and lenses. Canon’s network cameras, comprehensive analytics software, and a robotic arm – provided by Denso – will be on stand demonstrating how visual analytics technology can support automation of various cumbersome tasks.

Matthew Koshy, European Product Marketing Specialist, Canon Europe, comments: “We’re building on the success of ISE 2019 by expanding our input to output showcase, which highlights the importance of having an integrated line-up to deliver unbeatable resolution. Our range of high-brightness and high-image-quality laser projectors will be on display to show how cohesive projection systems offer systems integrators incredible optical performance, simple installation and low maintenance.”

4K – input to output

At one of the dedicated zones on stand, Canon will showcase its industry-leading imaging solutions which work seamlessly together to streamline workflows and guarantee optical excellence for system integrators.

Canon’s premium video camera range, reference display monitors and projectors, will offer visitors the chance to immerse themselves in a live 4K production simulation. Starring in this demo is the 4K production camera – the XF705, the renowned EOS C200 4K Cinema camera, the compact 4K camcorder – the XA55, and Canon’s latest 4K projector.

Canon’s XEED 4K6021Z with RS-SL07RST 4K lens – which uses the same technology featured in the EF and RF lens ranges – will also be on stand alongside its video range. This combination creates high resolution and true to life images that guarantees systems integrators can get the best from Canon’s 4K technology.

The power of HDR

Canon will showcase the excellence of its HDR imaging ecosystem, with content captured on its cameras and projected by native 4K high-brightness projectors. Through its collaboration with dnp Supernova, Canon will demonstrate colour excellence and, again, 4K HDR image quality by projecting onto its ambient light rejecting screen. The dnp Supernova screen delivers unrivalled contrast, even in high-ambient lighting. It’s these bold, vivid colours and crisp, detailed images which make Canon’s LCOS models so popular within the creative sectors, which are increasingly turning to visual storytelling to compete with digital platforms. With the flexibility, quality and low maintenance of projectors, museums and galleries can create more immersive and engaging experiences than ever before to attract wider audiences.

8K showcase

As we see the interest and demand for 8K increase, the capability to display and view is becoming key. Helping the industry be one step ahead of this trend, Canon will exhibit an 8K projection solution, in partnership with media server software providers, AV Stumpfl. The AV Stumpfl Pixera Two server will help deliver and manage the 8K content – captured using Canon kit - ensuring Canon’s projectors can focus on delivering excellent 8K image quality which packs a punch.

Canon’s latest development of 8K broadcast lenses include the multi-purpose portable lens 7x10.7B KAS S and Canon’s first box type telephoto 8K lens SP51x15.5B. A decade in the making, Canon’s 8K lenses are set to be used at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, bringing viewers even closer to the action in stunning resolution. Canon has already experimented with 8K for a live-video transmission of a rugby match in Japan. The match was captured with a Canon 8K camera and lens and transmitted to a Canon 8K HDR Display and projector system comprising of four Canon 4K HDR projector units, to achieve an impressive live viewing experience with a high dynamic range and wide colour gamut. A similar demonstration will be reconstructed on stand to showcase the optical excellence of its 8K line-up.

ISE runs from 11th – 14th February 2020 in Amsterdam and you can find Canon in
Hall 1, Stand F-50.
