As Canon DSLR cameras become more popular in Hollywood’s entertainment industry, Canon U.S.A. has just announced the opening of a new support center to better serve its film and television production clients. The Canon Hollywood Professional Technology and Support Center, located at the historic Sunset Gower Studio lot on 6060 Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, will provide a local site to foster support, research, service and training for camera owners/shooters and others interested in using Canon cameras.
“We want to offer a one-stop shop where our clients can come to ask questions and explore our various products with the help of our highly qualified technical and engineering staff members,” says Yuichi Ishizuka, executive VP and general manager of Imaging Technologies and Communications Group at Canon U.S.A. “The Canon Hollywood Professional Technology and Support Center provides a well-equipped venue for working with professionals in a range of imaging industries, from film and television production to still imaging and professional output.”
Comprehensive repair services for Canon professional products will be available in the new Hollywood facility starting in late 2011. On-site repair operations will include two state-of-the-art camera-body-and-lens adjustment rooms; Canon’s advanced adjustment-and-calibration equipment; local spare-parts inventory; and an experienced, professional repair staff that can quickly return Canon’s professional products to their original factory condition and operation.
The facility will support business opportunities by offering one-to-one meetings with major clients in the industry to further build relationships and assess their needs. It will also offer hands-on education to current and potential clients on the latest Canon professional products. Courtesy visits by both existing and potential industry clients can be arranged to explore opportunities and assess Canon’s full capabilities. Guilds, unions or organizations affiliated with film and television production are encouraged to inquire about hosting seminars, events and industry gatherings at Canon’s Hollywood Center. The Center will also host Canon Live Learning (CLL) workshops, which are fee-based seminars for professionals and enthusiasts looking to further their imaging education.
