Canon VB-C50iR Pan/Tilt/Zoom Network Video Cameras Provide Remote IP Monitoring of Stadium Renovations

canon-kansas-city-chiefs.jpg The ability to remotely view video of building renovations via an Internet-connected security camera has become a popular innovation in the construction industry. When that renovation involves the home stadium of a major sports team, however, the use of such technology provides fans with the ability to see the progress unfold brick-by-brick. Both the National Football League’s Kansas City Chiefs and Major League Baseball’s Kansas City Royals are currently renovating their stadiums. Faced with the challenge of finding the best video camera with convenient IP (Internet Protocol) connectivity and the ability to capture detailed video images of the construction from a distance, both teams chose the VB-C50iR pan/tilt/zoom Network Video Solutions (NVS) camera from Canon U.S.A., Inc. more

CANON REALiS SX6 MULTIMEDIA PROJECTOR GETS “GREEN LIGHT” FROM TRAFFIC PLANNING AND DESIGN

canon-realis-tpd-1.jpgFor Traffic Planning and Design (TPD), a Pottstown, Penn.-based civil engineering firm, visual details are mission-critical. In order to show CADD (Computer Aided Design & Drafting) graphics of upcoming projects, TPD needed a display solution that could accurately convey every visual detail with intricate precision and clarity. After researching available options TPD outfitted its primary conference room with a Canon REALiS SX6 Multimedia Projector, which provides crisp SXGA+ (1400 x 1050) resolution display, 3,500 ANSI Lumens of brightness, a contrast ratio of 1000:1, and Adobe RGB color matching. more

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

San Francisco Newspaper Captures the Sights and Sounds of the Bay Area with Canon’s XH A1

canon-xh-a1-gonzalez.jpg“The Voice of the West” since 1865, the six-time Pulitzer Prize winning San Francisco Chronicle is now the eyes and ears as well, with online video on its SFGate.com Web site further expanding its comprehensive coverage of the Bay Area. Among the top five newspaper Web sites nationally for daily visitors, the Chronicle‘s staff photographers capture their SFGate.com online video reports using Canon‘s XH A1 HD camcorders, which do double-duty shooting still images for the paper as well. more

CANON U.S.A. WEB SITE EXPANDS USERS AWARENESS OF HIGH-RESOLUTION PROJECTOR IMAGE QUALITY

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
