Canon Europe Announces Live Production Imaging Ecosystem
Canon Europe today announced a Live Production Imaging Ecosystem, XR studio and VR solutions at the IBC Show.
Canon’s Live Production Imaging Ecosystem: Addressing the growing demand for solutions that support remote and live production, Canon will showcase its customizable multicamera setup. From large format cinema cameras to remote control PTZ cameras, visitors to the stand will see how they can configure a unique multi-cam setup that meets their needs. To talk them through how this works in practice is Canon Ambassador and filmmaker, Sébastien Devaud. Canon’s latest PTZ cameras — which support a range of IP protocols — will be paired alongside high-end cinema cameras such as the EOS C300 Mark III and XF605 professional camcorder using Canon’s XC protocol and output on its professional reference monitors, to showcase the possibilities for live and remote production.
XR Studio: XR Studio solutions are changing the game for high-end content creation, offering a high-quality and more efficient setup for filmmakers. Partnering with Mo-Sys — a manufacturer of virtual production solutions – Canon will be showcasing how its XR solution software communicates with lens and camera data on its professional cinema cameras. Demonstrated with various products such as EOS C500 Mark II and Flex Zoom lenses, the solution enables a high-resolution LED backdrop to react as the camera and lens are operated. Director and cinematographer, Brett Danton, will also talk about how he has used Canon kit to support his recent work, captured using extended reality (XR) methods.
VR Zone: For those wanting a break from the trade show floor, visitors can immerse themselves in a variety of VR content captured with the Canon EOS R5, EOS R5 C and RF 5.2mm F2.8L DUAL FISHEYE Lens. VR solution provider Invelon has created two VR experiences: either take a journey on the back of a quad bike through a beautiful holiday destination or be transported backstage with a rock band and experience the sensation of ambisonic audio with VR headsets provided by Varjo and powered by PCs from Lenovo.
