Canon USA to Showcase AMLOS Collaboration Technology It is Developing at InfoComm 2022 in Las Vegas

AMLOS (Activate My Line of Sight) System is being designed to help redefine how we see, engage and interact in hybrid environments

MELVILLE, N.Y. , June 8, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- CanonU.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, is excited to invite customers and show attendees to experience the AMLOS (Activate My Line of Sight) System at the InfoComm 2022 Exhibit Hall that's open June 8-10 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Canon will be orchestrating demonstrations of the technology being developed1,scheduling one-on-one appointments with potential business partners and customers, and displaying designs of the creative process from when the AMLOS solution was used to help people collaborate in connection with creating an animated short film with HITRECORD, the company that runs an online community for creative collaboration. The animated short film has been submitted for several film festivals.

The AMLOS solution is a single (camera), and simple and seamless hybrid work solution  being designed to enable in-person meeting participants to guide the focus of a single camera2 using simple hand gestures and share digitally enhanced, high-resolution images from the room with remote collaborators.3Remote users can access the AMLOS meeting through a web browser from a link sent by the in room presenter, and  can personalize their view , focusing on the speaker or  the whiteboard, a screen or a prop in the room that the in room presenter is highlighting – creating a useful and engaging experience.3,4

"Collaboration has taken on an entirely new meaning as a result of the pandemic.

We understand what a game changer it is, especially in our industry where we're constantly collaborating on ideas, with coworkers and clients all over the world," said Andrés Ordóñez, chief creative officer, FCB Chicago.
