    Introducing Canon imagePRESS™ Brand for Digital Color Print
    Canon U.S.A. today also unveils a new brand for the Americas for its
    future line of high-end, high-quality digital press devices: Canon
    imagePRESS. The new imagePRESS brand was developed to significantly
    expand Canon’s presence in the color production and commercial graphic
    arts printing markets, where customers such as creative services
    companies, advertising agencies, design firms and marketing departments
    all require best-in-class color and image quality. Also fueled by the
    digital color requirements of the commercial print and graphic arts
    markets, imagePRESS strategically expands the high-end digital printing

    on this successful heritage in color document production, giving a
    market with limited choices the assurance of choosing Canon,” remarked

    Emerging Technology
    On display at Canon EXPO are several conceptual examples of
    “CrossTechnology,” where comprehensive sets of imaging and
    collaboration technologies are distributed around an enterprise and
    integrated into devices at the chip level. Specific applications
    include “CrossMedia,” focusing on Canon’s advancement in color science,
    and in delivering super-accurate color across devices, “CrossService,”
    demonstrating how intelligent devices will soon be working together to
    provide a rich network of intelligent workflow and powering new levels
    of connectivity, multi-functionality and the next phase in the
    evolution of Canon MEAP® (Multifunctional Embedded Application
    Platform) technology, and “CrossPerson,” demonstrating how Canon is
    expanding the boundaries of collaboration and information flexibility.

    High Definition Capture and Display
    Today Canon introduces its first High Definition (HD) Camcorder for
    electronic newsgathering, sports and episodic television, as well as
    documentary and feature filmmaking applications. The three CCD XL H1
    High Definition Camcorder delivers crisp high-definition video at 1080i
    resolution and features selectable frame rates of 60i, 30 Frame and 24
    Frame, and can switch back to SD resolution if needed. These features
    allow the user to adjust to the assignment at hand.

    Built into the camcorder is Canon’s professional jackpack terminals,
    which includes features like uncompressed digital HD-SDI output for
    seamless integration into broadcast studios or high-quality image
    transfer to non-linear editing systems. The Genlock feature allows
    movie sets to easily synchronize camera settings across multiple
    camcorders and SMPTE time-codes in-and-out allow for streamlined tape
    and edit management.

    The XL H1 High Definition (HD) camcorder is being shown at Canon EXPO
    in a technology demonstration that also includes SED flat panel
    television displays jointly developed by Canon and Toshiba.

    “The anticipation surrounding Canon’s entry in the High Definition
    Video Camcorder space is now over. The new XL H1 comes to market just
    at the right time, as the HD transition accelerates, making a similar
    impact as the very successful XL Series that preceded it,” continued
    Adachi. “When demonstrated with our future SED flat panel television
    displays, it is literally clear to see that Canon will play a
    significant role in bringing outstanding HD broadcast content and
    display technology to our customers.”

    The XL H1 camcorder will be available in November for an estimated selling price of $8,999.
