Canon press release:
Canon U.S.A. Launches Comprehensive Color Calibration Service For Displays
New Service for Color-Critical Environments also Includes Calibration of Non-Canon Displays
MELVILLE, NY, October 10, 2019 – As High Dynamic Range (HDR) content production continues to become more popular, the need for finely calibrated displays has become more critical. With numerous evolving HDR formats, it is only through calibration that the artistic vision can be fully enjoyed. In response to this growing demand, Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions is excited to announce it will now be offering a color calibration service for display products. The fee-based service can be performed on Canon’s lineup of reference displays as well as displays from other manufacturers. As a well-established industry leader in Service and Support, Canon’s commitment to professionals is further cemented with the introduction of this new service offering.
Clients of this service will have Imaging Science Foundation (ISF) certified Canon professionals visit them on-site, so that the calibration is tailored specifically to their viewing environment. During a calibration session, several key image quality elements will be measured such as, white point, primary and secondary color chromaticity, luminance and gamma. Each attribute will be adjusted to best match the industry standard that fits the client’s needs. Clients will also be provided with detailed pre- and post-calibration reports – removing ambiguities as to how each display is performing.
“At Electric Entertainment we had an exceptional experience with Canon’s on-site service and support reference display color calibration service that included HDR and SDR alignments,” noted Bill Ritter, Head of Engineering for Electric Entertainment. “In our case, we needed color calibration assurance in P3D65, DCI XYZ and head/full range REC 709 color spaces. The Canon representatives’ expertise and one-on-one experience was second to none. Any of our questions were answered quickly and professionally.”
Canon’s color calibration service is available now. For more information about the service or to set-up a free consultation with a Canon calibration professional, please visit usa.canon.com/calibration.
