Canon Becomes /i Technology Partner
Metadata protocol provides vital lens information for post-production teams.
Cooke Optics, the multi-award winning manufacturer of precision lenses for film and television, announced that Canon has become the newest member of the /i Technology partnership. Canon joins many other leading manufacturers including Sony, ARRI and RED in its adoption of the technology protocol that records key lens data for use in the post-production process.
/i support will be built into Canon’s newly launched CINE-SERVO 17-120mm T2.95 zoom lens and the PL-mount variant of the new CN7x17 KAS S/P1 (part of the Canon EOS System).
Les Zellan, chairman and owner, Cooke Optics, said, “We are delighted to welcome Canon to the /i Technology family. /i Technology enables post and VFX teams to track shots far more accurately, which leads to shorter production time and greater creative freedom.”
