Canon Encourages Every Business to See the Impossible Through Innovation
MELVILLE, N.Y., December 27, 2017 – Continuing its innovative path this year, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, is proud to welcome visionaries back to its booth at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, NV (Booth #16206). This year, the booth welcomes back visionary FoxTales. An experiential marketing technology company that works with brands to create immersive shareable moments, FoxTales has created a “face painting in the dark” experience with Canon’s ME20F-SH Multi-Purpose camera to showcase its low-light video capabilities. Joining FoxTales this year will be a myriad of new visionaries focusing on manufacturing, retail, sports and entertainment. Each visionary will showcase how they leverage Canon’s rich heritage of sensor and optics technologies, innovations and manufacturing to help shape their vision.
“CES 2018 marks our persistent trajectory of redefining the boundaries of innovation and creating business solutions for more imaging related products,” said Eliott Peck, executive vice president and general manager, Imaging Technologies and Communications Group, Canon U.S.A., Inc. and chairman & CEO, Canon Information Technology Services, Inc. “We learned, we listened, and we look forward to continuing on this journey as we introduce new visionaries that are leveraging Canon technologies in ways that inspire new concepts of imaging.”
The visionaries to be highlighted by Canon at CES 2018 include:
- Fellow Robots, helping revolutionize the retail industry one robot at a time through machine learning and shelf analytics that simplify the inventory process, will display two robots to engage in real-time inventory scanning demonstrations using Canon cameras and sensors.
- Highlighting the manufacturing world, Cablevey Conveyors, a clean and gentle way to move materials around production facilities, will demonstrate how Canon cameras are used to help cable conveyors systems operate.
- Those interested in technology driven marketing & advertising in sports and entertainment verticals can remote control a simulated stadium camera offering easy breezy in-seat fan engagement experience. Brizi, the company behind BriziCam, will provide attendees the opportunity to test camera zoom capabilities of Canon cameras from a “field” away.
- Anyone looking to examine their backswing or work on their short game can tee off with a golf simulation experience from About Golf leveraging Canon projectors.
Also appearing in the booth will be Silhouette, which creates 3D educational models utilizing 2D prints from a Canon inkjet printer, The Crowley Company, a leader in digital imaging technologies for the archival preservation and records management industries, and Tome, which develops AI enterprise software for connected products and mobility solutions.
Further expanding its focus on innovation, Canon hosted their first-ever Code Canon hackathon. Focusing on the possibilities of imaging and creating unique trail-blazing solutions, more than 80 developers, engineers, designers, entrepreneurs, startup and fresh code teams gathered in New York City for two days to work on exciting solutions in imaging for commercial applications. Visitors to the booth can learn more by watching the Code Canon hackathon video.
New to the booth this year, Canon will showcase its lineup of inkjet card printers, thermal re-transfer ID card printers and label printers offering convenient on-demand printing that yields professional quality output. This new lineup empowers customers in a variety of markets to create print materials in-house, such as security credential cards, encrypted ID cards, product labels and business cards on demand that meet their everyday business printing needs.
Additionally, Canon will show its impressive lineup of consumer and professional imaging products including cameras and printers such as the PowerShot G1 X Mark III, Canon’s first point-and-shoot camera to feature a APS-C sensor and the latest lineup of PIXMA series printers as well as displays showcasing the Company’s world-class technologies, optics, sensors and processors.
