CANON‘S XH G1 AND XL H1 HD CAMCORDERS PROVIDE COMPACT PRODUCTION SOLUTION FOR THALER FILMS

canon-xl-h1-thaler-35.jpgDavid and Christopher Thaler have been in the television production business for more than 20 years. Working for a wide array of broadcast, cable and corporate clients, the brothers have captured motion images on everything from 35mm film to DV tape. In recent years their Emmy Award-winning New York-based company, Thaler Films, has provided production services for many top-rated cable series, including John Edward Cross Country, on WE tv, featuring the world-famous psychic medium, author and lecturer. When the show‘s producer asked if they could capture high-def close-ups of John Edward interacting with audience members, but do it inconspicuously with a telephoto lens from the back of a 5,000-seat studio, David Thaler sought an alternative to the cameras they had been using to shoot this live-to-tape series. more

Major Chicago Newspaper Uses Canon U.S.A.‘s XH A1 HD Camcorder to Capture Multimedia News

Look carefully. The picture that appears on the front page of tomorrow‘s Chicago Tribune may not be a “photograph” at all. It might be a frame-grab from a high-definition digital video camcorder. Either way, readers will not be able to tell the difference, and there is no reason they should need to. A great, high-quality picture has value because of its content, not because of the camera that captured it. As valuable as that image may be, however, imagine how much more impact it can have when it is not only seen in print but also displayed as part of a motion-video sequence on that newspaper‘s Web site.

CANON U.S.A.‘S REALiS SX6 MULTIMEDIA PROJECTORS GO UNDER THE MICROSCOPE

As a leader in molecular biology studies, the Benaroya Research Institute (BRI) at Virginia Mason Medical Center in Seattle is a place where details are crucial. Studying the microscopic make-up of the immune system for possible causes and cures for devastating diseases, including diabetes, arthritis, heart disease and cancer, requires careful observation. Conveying the findings of that research requires an equally sharp picture and precise color imaging in order to present it for large-screen study. more

CANON’S REALiS SX6 PROJECTOR PROVIDES THE RIGHT EXPOSURE FOR THE ART OF PHOTOGRAPHY SHOW

When the third annual Art of Photography show began on April 14, 2007 in San Diego‘s trendy Gaslamp Quarter, it was the culmination of a selection process that began with 9,867 entries (submitted digitally) from 37 countries. In order for contest curator/producer Steven Churchill to accurately determine which photos should be shown, a high-resolution display technology was needed that was capable of revealing all the subtle details, color gradations, and shading of the original images on a larger scale. The REALiS SX6 Multimedia Projector from Canon U.S.A., Inc. was the obvious choice, as it displayed crisp SXGA+ (1400 X 1050) resolution images with exceptional color, intricate detail, a 1000:1 contrast ratio, and 3500 ANSI lumens of brightness. more
