Canon 8K Cameras and 8K Displays Will Be Shown at NAB 2016
What products/services will your company be showcasing?
We will be showing not only our existing product line, with a few surprises, but we will also be showing working 8K cameras and 8K displays that look into the future of production.
We have to remind our users of a rumor posted in February this year. Claiming that Canon is rumored to announce a new EOS C500 Mark II camcorder for the NAB Show 2016 event which is expected to be able to record videos at 8K resolution.
It will be exciting to see if the successor to the EOS C500 camcorder will be announced at the NAB Show 2016 this April and it will record 8K videos. Stay tuned for more information!
