An Interactive In-Booth Experience
The “Dreamers Welcome” theme will come to life through engaging in-booth demonstrations that highlight the power of the company’s wireless and cloud-enabled solutions. From mobile applications that allow select cameras to be operated remotely, to cloud technology that reinvents the way consumers print, the Canon booth at CES will showcase the creativity and convenience inspired by the company’s latest imaging devices. On display will be a variety of products including PIXMA printers featuring PIXMA Printing Solutions (PPS) app cloud-based technology, EOS DSLR cameras, PowerShot digital cameras, and VIXIA camcorders.
Adding to the overall booth experience, attendees can touch-and-try a range of Canon high-performance optics and cameras by entering an in-booth tower that features Canon’s full line of DSLR cameras and their Super Telephoto lenses including the EF 800mm f/5.6L IS. Also on display will be the latest professional video and Cinema EOS cameras, as well as large-format, professional photo and business printing solutions. Throughout the show, the Project Imaginat10n Theater will be showing short films from the Project Imaginat10n film festival and a highlight reel of spectacular footage shot and captured with the EOS 70D camera and Cinema EOS equipment as the Company looks to enable both consumers and professionals to tell their story through video as well as still images.
In addition, there will be an EOS 70D camera shooting gallery for guests to experience the capabilities of Dual Pixel CMOS AF, a technology found in the EOS 70D camera, and a section where they can unlock the images they capture by using the PPS-enabled PIXMA MG7120 printers. A photo gallery from PIXMA PRO City Senses, a three-city gallery series aimed at encapsulating an emotion and moment-in-time through the power of printed images, will also be on display.

As the rapid adoption of containers continues, companies are finding that they lack the operational tools to understand the behavior of applications deployed in these containers, and how to identify issues in their application infrastructure. For example, how are multiple containers within an application impacting each other’s performance? If an application’s service is degraded, which container is to blame? In the case of an application outage, what was the root cause of the outage?
