Canon will be recognised at the 71st Annual Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards for the ME20F-SH Ultra-High Sensitivity Full-HD Camera. The Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards honour development and innovation in broadcast technology and recognises contributors for breakthroughs in technology that have a significant effect on television engineering. The Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards will be presented on 19 April in Las Vegas.
“We are grateful to receive this esteemed recognition for our revolutionary ME20F-SH camera,” says Kazuto Ogawa, president and COO of Canon USA. “This marks Canon’s fifth Emmy, an accomplishment we are immensely proud of. This award is a testament to the company’s commitment and vision for developing imaging tools that help creative professionals see what was previously considered impossible.”
Canon’s ME20F-SH is a multi-purpose camera that can achieve ISO sensitivity of over 4,000,000 and uses an enhanced version of a 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor for Full HD video. Its compact, modular body design allows custom configurations for various usage scenarios. Since its introduction in July 2015, the camera has been used by visionary cinematographers and productions, like National Geographic’s Earth Live broadcast in 2017. The programme aired live video from remote wilderness sites around the world, utilising the ME20F-SH for the night-time locations to capture images of nocturnal creatures that would have otherwise gone unseen.
While capturing video in extreme low-light conditions often requires the use of infrared illumination (a technique that only yields video in monochrome), the ME20F-SH camera achieves impressive high-sensitivity performance, enabling the capture of colour Full HD video with reduced noise in low-light conditions without the need for infrared illumination.
The ME20F-SH uses an EF mount, allowing users to make use of the Company’s lineup of interchangeable EF lenses. By letting users select the lens based on their shooting or application requirements, the camera extends the range of imaging possibilities.
