Building on last year’s CES experience, Canon will host other companies, showcasing how they use Canon’s sensor and optics technology products, innovations and manufacturing to help shape their corporate vision.
Returning at the show will be 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.
Other visionaries to be highlighted by Canon at CES 2018 include:
• Fellow Robots, a retail robotics firm “helping revolutionize the retail industry one robot at a time through machine learning and shelf analytics that simplify the inventory process.” The company will display two robots to engage in real-time inventory scanning demonstrations using Canon cameras and sensors.
• Those interested in technology driven marketing and advertising in sports and entertainment verticals can remote control a simulated stadium camera offering an easy 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.
“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 VP/GM, Imaging Technologies and Communications Group and chairman/CEO, Canon Information Technology Services. “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.”
Product-wise, 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.
And of course, Canon will show its 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 an APS-C sensor and the latest lineup of PIXMA series printers. Canon will also display its wide range of service and support capabilities at the booth.
