The REALiS SX7 Mark II D Multimedia LCOS Projector
The REALiS SX7 Mark II D Multimedia projector includes a DICOM Simulation Mode for reproducing the accurate grayscale and precise details of monochrome digital X-Rays, CAT Scans, MRI's and other medical imagery for educational purposes. The DICOM Simulation Mode simulates the results of devices compliant with the Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) Part 14 standardized display function for display of grayscale images. This projector is ideal for medical educators who need to display large images to properly train students and conduct lectures/conferences.
The XF305 Professional Tapeless HD Camcorder
Recording to UDMA CF cards for maximum performance, Canon's new XF305 is one of the Company's first professional tapeless HD camcorders. The XF305 employs the advanced Canon XF Codec (MPEG-2 4:2:2 50Mbps) for capturing and recording native 1920 x 1080 video. The XF305 also uses the widely supported open-source MXF (Material eXchange Format) File Wrapper which unites video, audio and metadata into a single file for maximum compatibility with non-linear editing systems and existing production-industry infrastructures.
The EOS-1D Mark IV, EOS 5D Mark II and EOS 7D Digital SLR Cameras
Combining the ultimate in still-imaging quality with full 1080p HD video capture, Canon's EOS Digital SLR cameras provide photographers, videographers and cinematographers with unprecedented image-capture capabilities and functionality. The EOS-1D Mark IV is equipped with a completely redesigned 45-Point Auto Focus system, fast 10 fps continuous shooting, 16-megapixel resolution and outstanding ISO sensitivity. The EOS 5D Mark II has a large full-frame CMOS image sensor and a DIGIC 4 Imaging Processor that assists in rendering stunning color reproduction, amazing depth-of-field and fine HD detail. The EOS 7D features Dual DIGIC 4 Imaging Processors, advanced 19-Point Auto Focus system, a large APS-C – sized CMOS sensor and eight fps image capture to help photographers secure memorable shots that happen in an instant.
The BU-45H and BU-50H HD Remote-Control Robotic Pan-Tilt Cameras
For full broadcast-quality HD video capture in unmanned robotic-camera applications Canon offers the BU-50H indoor and BU-45H outdoor pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) remote-controlled cameras. Uses for the BU-50H camera include houses of worship, legislative chambers, concert halls and television studios. The outdoor BU-45H features a weather-tight protective housing and is designed for use as a POV (point-of-view) camera for traffic and weather monitoring along with high-resolution outdoor remote observation. Both the BU-45H and BU-50H cameras are equipped with three 1/3-inch (1.67 million-pixel) CCD sensors (1440 H x 1080 V), a Canon HD zoom lens with 20X optical zoom ratio (4.5 - 90mm), an advanced Canon Auto Focus function and Canon's sophisticated Image Stabilizer technology.
The VB-C60 PTZ Network Camera
The VB-C60 is a versatile, compact solution for high-quality remote video monitoring over IP. Featuring an ultra-long, built-in wide-angle 40x optical zoom lens, an Auto Focus system and Image Stabilization, the VB-C60 PTZ Network Camera's wide panning range (± 170), combined with its 56-degree wide-angle lens, provides coverage for a full 360-degree horizontal field of view. When viewing moving objects, images remain clear thanks to a high-sensitivity progressive-scan CCD and advanced Auto Focus system.
The VB-C500VD Vandal-Resistant Fixed Mini-Dome Network Camera
Designed for IP video security applications, Canon's VB-C500VD is ideally suited for locations where indoor security cameras are susceptible to vandalism or tampering, such as banking environments, shopping malls and schools. Integral to the design of the VB-C500VD is Canon's Multi-Directional Shock Absorber, a four-spring mechanism designed to protect the camera by lessening the effects of impact from various angles. Tamper-proof screws and a housing made of tough, advanced materials provide an added level of security. Other key features include an 82-degree wide-angle lens with 2.4x optical zoom, a high-sensitivity progressive-scan CCD, and two powerful Canon image processors.
imagePROGRAF iPF6350 Printer
Canon's 24-inch imagePROGRAF iPF6350 is designed for precise, ultra high-quality print performance and increased productivity. To enhance its available color spectrum, the iPF6350 features a revolutionary 12-Color LUCIA EX pigment ink set, increasing the achievable color gamut by approximately 20 percent from the previous imagePROGRAF iPFx100 series. To expand print options and improve proofing capabilities, the iPF6350 comes bundled with a new Print Plug-In for Photoshop®, Digital Photo Professional, and support for Adobe Color Management Module, enabling features such as Black Point Compensation.
PIXMA Pro9000 Mark II Photo Printer
The Canon PIXMA Pro9000 Mark II Photo Printer's impressive quality and speed are the result of the Canon FINE print head technology coupled with the Company's high-performance, high-density 6,144-nozzle print head, which is capable of producing nearly invisible ink droplets of two-picoliters.
