Canon EXPO: A celebration of the latest trends in imaging
Canon EXPO 2017 will feature the first Vietnam showing of Canon’s latest developments. These include 3D printers, cinema-grade 4K projectors and 120MP / 250MP CMOS sensors.
While Canon is well known for its DSLRs and its compact, fashionable cameras, Canon EXPO will give photographers their first chance to see the world’s highest resolution sensors for themselves. The 120MP and 250 MP sensors are able to create pictures as large as a soccer field. The sensors will be used for such purposes as security cameras in future.
The image quality experience is a journey from input to output. Canon EXPO will allow designers, marketers and artists to view stunning creations from Canon’s latest 3D printers. The printers allow users to make their ideas become tangible realities in just seconds. Dubbed ‘MARV’ – from MARVelous – the printers showcase the magic behind imaging technology, and the marvelous feeling that comes with the 3D printing experience.
Canon EXPO will highlight the broad reach of Canon’s technology, from the consumer-focused personal and family cameras, to semi-professional and professional grade photographic equipment, to photo printers for preserving memories. The business segment has options for enterprises large and small, including multifunction printers and scanners with their dedicated Therefore and uniFLOW software that enhances the performance of industrial printers, projectors and network cameras. Meanwhile, the one stop solution with multi-functional printer imageRUNNER ADVANCE Gen 3 scales can satisfy the demand of any modern office. Beyond just scanning and saving data via Therefore, it also monitors the workplace printing environment with uniFLOW to manage the safe and secure storage of data.
