Canon, in partnership with FCB and its experiential arm, FCBX, has premiered an interactive digital experience
through five unexpected experiences and innovation cornerstones to celebrate how people can use Canon products and solutions to help redefine the limits they face. Attendees will be inspired to transcend limits by capturing the marvels of space, the splendour of wildlife, and the nostalgia of a lost iconic sports setting.
To capture content for the interactive digital experience, FCBX hosted four remote shoots in just three weeks after learning CES 2021 would be virtual. The shoots took place in all different locations, including Yellowstone, Los Angeles, Dallas and Kawasaki, Japan – and each one was recorded and captured differently using Canon technology. Following Covid-19 safety guidelines, most communication occurred via Microsoft Teams and text, while watching live feed via monitors.
“The past year not only pushed our limits in how we design and create experiences, it pushed consumers to participate in different ways and also democratised access to a broader audience,” said Kim DeNapoli, EVP, head of FCBX. “ Moving forward, you will see brands layering the physical with digital. This is exciting for companies because it gives them a rich creative opportunity to do things with their brands that they may not have tried in the past because consumers will be open and ready for the new experience.”
“2020 was a year filled with limits. We were all faced with looking at our daily lives and figuring out the best paths to complete our professional work and responsibilities to our families,” added Kazuto Ogawa, president and CEO, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “As we catapult into 2021, we are presented with a unique opportunity to redefine our limits. At CES, Canon is excited to share how our technologies, solutions and products can inspire and offer a chance to collaborate on a better future.”
