Canon Europe is showcasing a new era in seamless workflows for attendees at IBC 2017. With increasing scrutiny on 4K, Canon is demonstrating how its workflow solutions are set to enable more efficient and cost-effective production for broadcasters and filmmakers alike.

Focused on the future needs of the industry and feedback from customers, Canon is showcasing its professional imaging range – from input to output. Among the products on display are the new Canon professional 4K/UHD/50P entry into the Cinema EOS range, the EOS C200, the CN-E70-200mm T4.4 L IS cine-lens, and the CN E18-80mm T4.4 L IS KAS S.

Built for professionals, and ideal for small production teams and single owner-operators, the EOS C200 is the first Cinema EOS camera to feature the Cinema RAW light format. Designed to take the complexity out of delivering high-quality footage, the EOS C200 offers various benefits to broadcasters and filmmakers. It features an advanced AF system that provides reliability and accuracy when shooting 4K.

It also includes a high-quality LCD panel, which allows the operator to effortlessly select their subject. For those who need to switch seamlessly between several subjects in a single shot, the Dual Pixel CMOS AF enables smooth AF operation, while the Manual Focus Assist Function, Face Detection with Face Priority and Face-Only options, provides greater creative focus control.

The CN-E70-200mm T4.4 L IS cine-lens and the CN E18-80mm T4.4 L IS KAS S are just two of Canon’s compact cine-servo versatile lenses. Designed for professional and advanced amateur videographers using large-format, single-sensor cameras, these lenses unlock the creative freedom to take advantage of 4K, integrated servo control and effortless switching between several subjects in a single shot. They ensure video can be captured with the utmost precision and quality.

“The world of cinema and TV is radically changing on every level, from workflows all the way through to how production teams shoot and display footage,” says Richard Shepherd, pro marketing manager, consumer imaging, Canon Europe. “At this exciting and challenging time, Canon’s innovations are continuously shifting to meet the fluctuating needs of broadcasters and filmmakers, and the recent launch of the EOS C200 is testament to this. From solo operators to larger production teams, Canon delivers high-quality, ease-of-use, and flexibility that empowers creative shooting potential.”

Focused on its commitment to visual storytelling, Canon’s IBC stand will also showcase a cutting-edge, 30-inch, 2000 nit display monitor prototype, along with a suite of other new products for broadcasters and filmmakers.
