Canon opens its 'most advanced' service & support center yet in Burbank
Today, Canon officially opens the doors to its latest and greatest Professional Technology & Support Center, a state-of-the-art facility in Burbank, California. Canon is calling this facility its "most advanced cinema industry resource to date."
"Evolving from what began at Canon’s original Hollywood facility, the new state-of-the-art Canon Burbank facility provides these customers with enhanced technical environments and accessible service and support," explains Canon. "Canon Burbank is poised to support Canon’s clients’ productivity through a dynamic mix of product evaluation and testing, product & workflow training, industry events and expedited repairs."
The center was built mainly to support the Cinema EOS community, speeding up service and support times for studio customers in LA, but stills photographers in the area will be able to take advantage of it like any other CPS center. Just don't expect the workshops, demos, and software trainings offered there to be focused on still imaging.
DPReview is actually going to the grand opening today, and we'll have more to share in the very near future. In the meantime, head over to the official Canon Burbank facility webpage and have a look around.
