MELVILLE, N.Y. -- June 10, 2013

Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, will exhibit
innovative new projection and HD camera products at InfoComm 2013, at the
Orange County Convention Center (booth # 3729) from June 12-14, in Orlando,
FL. Designed to address the needs of many professional markets and a wide
range of end-users, Canon’s new products will include two entirely new
projector categories for the Company: the ultra-portable Canon LE-5W
Multimedia  Projector, and a series of eight new REALiS Pro AV Compact
Installation LCOS projectors. On the image-capture side, Canon will introduce
the new EVERCAM XU-81 and EVERCAM XU-81 W robotic remote-control HD
pan-tilt-zoom cameras with outstanding image quality, color reproduction, and
precise Canon Auto Focus performance for many different indoor and outdoor
applications.

Canon’s spacious InfoComm 2013 booth exhibit will feature special
product-demonstration areas enabling attendees to view many of the Company’s
latest advances in imaging and optical technologies. These areas will include
a central Touch & Try section in which attendees can see first-hand new Canon
DSLR cameras, PIXMA PRO professional inkjet printers, and the outstanding EOS
C100 Cinema camera. The Touch & Try section will be flanked by additional
areas demonstrating the energy efficiency, consistent light output (relative
to zoom position), edge-blending technology, and network multi-projection
(LAN-based video streaming) capabilities of Canon’s all-new REALiS Pro AV
Compact Installation LCOS projectors.

Pro AV Compact Installation LCOS Projectors

Combining the outstanding picture quality of larger installation projectors
with the plug-and-play convenience of portable models, Canon’s new series of
REALiS Pro AV Compact Installation LCOS projectors are engineered to deliver
excellent imaging performance, in a smaller, more affordable design. The Canon
REALiS WUX450, REALiS WUX400ST, REALiS WX520, and REALiS WX450ST, all
available in both standard and DICOM® Simulation models, will debut during
InfoComm 2013. Each feature a trim design under 14 lbs., easy set-up, and
sophisticated operational advantages intended for use in environments such as
houses of worship, college lecture halls, government monitoring facilities,
and corporate boardrooms.

Offering placement flexibility, the new Canon REALiS WUX450 and REALiS WX520
Pro AV Compact Installation LCOS projectors are equipped with a Genuine Canon
projection lens that delivers a consistent fixed aperture of f/2.8, helping to
ensure virtually no light loss across its entire 1.8x zoom range. This feature
will be demonstrated within Canon’s InfoComm 2013 exhibit, in which the
outstanding energy efficiency of the new REALiS Pro AV Compact Installation
LCOS projectors will also be displayed. In addition, built-in edge blending
functionality, which is employed through a newly developed imaging processor,
will be showcased within the "Deliver Possibilities” section of the booth.
Demonstrations will show how the new Canon REALiS Pro AV Compact Installation
LCOS Projectors can be used in multi-projector configurations for the display
of large, seamless images with precisely matched edges.

Also to be demonstrated are the short-throw projection capabilities of the new
Canon REALiS WUX400ST and REALiS WX450ST Pro AV Compact Installation LCOS
projectors. The WUX400ST has a throw ratio of 0.56:1 and the WX450ST has a
throw ratio of 0.57:1. The models include a 0-75 percent vertical and ± 10
percent horizontal lens-shift adjustment feature for easy installation in
environments where the projector must be located close to the screen or other
display surface. These features allow for space reduction without complicated
mirror setups and provide cost savings compared to complicated long throw
projection setups that generally require expensive long/ultra-long throw
lenses.

The new Canon REALiS Pro AV Compact Installation LCOS projectors are also
available in “D” versions featuring a DICOM® Simulation mode and superb
21-step grayscale gradation display capabilities designed to effectively
project high-quality medical images such as X-rays, CAT scans and MRIs.*

The Ultra-Portable LE-5W Multimedia Projector

Great for  both small business and home use, the ultra-portable LE-5W
Multimedia Projector weighs just 3.5 lbs. yet delivers 500-lumen native WXGA
(1140x912) resolution still or motion images with superb color fidelity and a
contrast ratio of 3000:1. Equipped with energy-saving, long-life 3-LED
technology, the Canon LE-5W projector includes an HDMI input for display of
content from tablets, smartphones, and other mobile devices, as well as PCs,
Blu-ray players, game consoles, HD streaming players, and digital cameras.

The LE-5W projector is excellent for viewing movies, video games, and still or
streamed images. It also includes built-in 2.5-watt stereo speakers. The LE-5W
projector can also deliver “PC-less” smart presentations directly from a USB
thumb drive, SD card, or its own built-in memory, so it can play multimedia
files without peripheral components. Equipped with three LED’s (RGB) that have
up to a remarkable 20,000 hour lifespan, the projector is energy-efficient,
with an ECO mode that consumes 30 percent less energy than while running in
Normal Mode.

New HD PTZ Cameras

Building on the success of its line of cost-effective, remote-control HD
pan-tilt-zoom cameras, Canon is also introducing the EVERCAM XU-81 and EVERCAM
XU-81W pan-tilt-zoom HD cameras at InfoComm 2013. Compact, affordable, and
fully integrated, these cameras are designed for houses of worship, concert
and performing arts venues, civil service, and many other applications. The
new EVERCAM XU-81 and EVERCAM XU-81W pan-tilt-zoom HD cameras feature a 20x
Genuine Canon zoom lens (with additional 12x digital zoom), and a
2.1-Megapixel CMOS imaging sensor. The EVERCAM XU-81 is designed for indoor
use, while the EVERCAM XU-81W features a tough, durable housing that meets the
IP-55 enclosure rating for waterproof and dustproof integrity, enabling it to
be used for both indoor and outdoor applications. Capable of fast, smooth,
highly precise, quiet movements even while simultaneously panning and tilting,
the Canon EVERCAM XU-81 and EVERCAM XU-81 W pan-tilt-zoom HD cameras feature
an open control protocol for flexible systemization and an integral microphone
that allows for the capture of sound at the camera location.

Full HD and Megapixel Network Cameras

Also on display in Canon’s booth at InfoComm 2013 will be the Company’s line
of full HD and megapixel network cameras. These include the VB-H41 Full HD PTZ
Network Camera, VB-M40 Megapixel PTZ Network Camera, VB-H610VE Vandal
Resistant Fixed Dome Network Camera, VB-M600D Megapixel Fixed Dome Network
Camera, and the VB-H710F Fixed Network Camera. The full HD models (VB-H41,
VB-H610VE, and VB-H710F) feature Genuine Canon optics, a 1/3 2.1-Megapixel
CMOS image sensor, Canon DIGIC NET II and DIGIC DV III processors, and
simultaneously transmit H.264 and MJPEG at 1920 x 1080 up to 30fps. A built-in
Web Viewer allows for remote video viewing by authorized users on any web
browser, including smart phone web browsers or leading third-party
applications. In addition, the models VB-H610VE and VB-M600D feature a unique
Remote Adjustment Function to adjust the pan, tilt, rotation, zoom, and focus
settings of these fixed cameras from any Internet-connected PC at any time.
All Canon Full HD network cameras include on-board video analytics and ONVIF
(Open Network Video Interface Forum) Profile S conformance for improved
compatibility with other ONVIF-compliant third-party products.
