Software Application Technology

The determining factors in appraising digital cameras, copying machines, facsimile machines, printers and other high-technology equipment are the speed and quality of image output.

The key technology is software applications, including image processing. At Canon, we are working to provide a better working environment through the development of new technologies, including those for image formatting, processing various signals, processing text and image information more efficiently and with higher precision, retrieving data to make systems more user friendly and interfacing with users.

In particular, our technologies for handling digital images are positioned as an important breakthrough for creating new communication modes for the digital society of the future. Through R&D on diverse software applications, we are pushing ahead the potential of digital imaging to enable everyone to convey their ideas just as they are and to make them usable by anyone, anytime and anywhere.
