Canon U.S.A. will be recognized at the 64th annual Technology and Engineering Emmy Awards for “improvements to large format CMOS imagers for use in high definition broadcast video cameras.”
Presented by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS), the Technology and Engineering Emmy Awards honor development and innovation in broadcast technology and recognize companies, organizations and individuals for breakthroughs in technology that have a significant effect on television engineering.
“We are honored to receive this recognition from NATAS for our work on large format sensors,” said Masaya Maeda, managing director and chief executive, image communication products operations, Canon. “We see this award as a testament to the warm acceptance that the film and television production community has extended to us as we’ve partnered with them over the last year to help tell their stories. It also serves as further incentive for our continued commitment to the entertainment industry.”
Last November, Canon announced its full-fledged entry into the theatrical motion picture, television programming and television commercial production industries with the launch of the Cinema EOS system. Over the past 10 months, the company has introduced three high-definition, high-performance Cinema EOS digital cinema cameras – the EOS C300 Digital Cinema Camera, the EOS C500 4K Digital Cinema Camera and the lightweight EOS C100 Digital Video Camera – all built around Canon’s Super 35-mm CMOS image sensor technology.
The Technology and Engineering Emmy Award will be presented, Jan. 10 at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
