CANON U.S.A. OPENS ADVANCED CINEMA INDUSTRY RESOURCE FACILITY FOR STUDIOS AND POST
New Professional Service & Support Center in Burbank, Calif., Becomes Dedicated Location for Studios, Post-Production Facilities, Suppliers and Professional Organizations.
Continuing its support of professional clients in the filmmaking and still imaging communities, Canon this week officially opened its doors to its newest Professional Technology & Support Center in Burbank, California. Evolving from what began at Canon‘s original Hollywood facility, the new state-of-the-art Canon Burbank facility provides its customers with enhanced technical environments and accessible service and support.
Ryan Salazar and I were on-hand to see the unveiling. Canon‘s spokespersons at the press conference, which was held in the lobby of the showroom, stated that Canon Burbank is poised to support Canon‘s clients’ productivity through a dynamic mix of product evaluation and testing, product & workflow training, industry events and expedited repairs.
“Since our 2011 launch of Cinema EOS, Canon has been steadfastly committed to exceeding the high expectations of our professional clients in the production community,”said Eliott Peck, executive vice president and general manager of the Imaging Technologies & Communications Group, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “Our new Burbank location represents the culmination of our commitment to listen to our clients, understand their needs and provide them with what they need to bring their artistic and passion projects to life. As Canon continues on its journey to support the production community and evolve with changes in this industry, our mission is now clearer than ever, to be a resource and a beacon for industry professionals.”
Every aspect of the new facility’s design and operation was made in consideration of improving customers’ experience with Canon products from input to output, and in improving access to the highly trained Canon service and support team.
