CES 2023 – Canon Demos a First in Immersive Movie Experiences

Canon USA is demonstrating how its technology is dissolving the barrier between real and virtual worlds at CES 2023. They and director M. Night Shyamalan are placing CES attendees inside the story of his upcoming thriller, Knock at the Cabin.

Canon will prove how its solutions can remove the limits via four unique technologies:

  • Kokomo is a first-of-its-kind immersive virtual reality software combining virtual reality with an immersive calling experience. It allows users to meet friends and family virtually “in person” using a compatible VR headset and a compatible smartphone. At the Canon booth, visitors can put on a VR headset and step into a 1:1 Kokomo conversation with one of four characters from Knock at the Cabin.
  • The Free Viewpoint Video System comprises over 100 Canon Cinema EOS-based 4k cameras and lenses. The data captured from the cameras is sent to a server system that creates point-cloud-based 3D models to reproduce various viewpoints or desired camera angles. CES attendees can view an action scene from Knock at the Cabin from multiple perspectives as captured by the Free Viewpoint Video System, experiencing a new meaning to the term “best seats in the house.”
  • MREAL imaging technology integrates real and virtual worlds, helps account for limits of scale, perception, analysis, and participation, and provides superb, almost life-like image clarity and color accuracy. Visitors to the booth will experience a break-in scene from the movie Knock at the Cabin as if they are a character in the movie.
  • The AMLOS (Activate My Line of Sight) solution amplifies how people see and interact in hybrid meeting environments. The software-and-camera product suite provides an extraordinary level of engagement for collaboration across multiple meeting locations. Using AMLOS, CES attendees will connect with a stranger on the actual set of Knock at the Cabin located in Philadelphia.

Visit Canon from January 5th-8th (Hall 3, #16359) at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
