Canon USA Joins the IMCCA to Help Share Information about its Upcoming Solution for the Hybrid Workplace

Canon aims for Creative Collaboration with its upcoming AMLOS (Activate My Line of Sight) Solution in the Post-Pandemic Work Environment

MELVILLE, NY, October 4, 2022 – To help promote best practices in the hybrid workplace, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, is pleased to announce it has joined the Interactive Multimedia and Collaborative Communications Alliance (IMCCA). The IMCCA is a non-profit industry association resolved to strengthen and grow communications and collaboration through thought leadership, impartial information, and education. By joining the IMCCA, Canon aims to demonstrate the impressive capabilities of its upcoming innovative solution, the AMLOS solution, which is currently scheduled to be made available to the public this fall.*

The AMLOS (Activate My Line Of Sight) system* is a hybrid meeting software solution being developed to utilize a single compatible Canon PTZ camera** in a meeting room. It enables a user from home to see multiple angles of a room at the office based on what in-person participants focus on. The AMLOS solution also allows in-person participants to perform certain actions using simple hand gestures.*** The AMLOS solution is designed to layer an additional visual experience on top of an organization’s compatible remote meeting experience.**

“By joining the IMCCA, we hope to learn from other members of the association, but also show the industry what Canon has innovated with our upcoming AMLOS solution that is designed to help bridge the gap between the office and employees working from home,” said Shinichi “Sam” Yoshida, executive vice president and general manager of Canon U.S.A., Inc. “We strive to meet the needs of our customers and spread awareness of solutions to workflow problems they might have. Being a member of The IMCCA can help us achieve that.”

The IMCCA is celebrating its 23rd anniversary this year, and distributes a quarterly publication called “Collaboration Today and Tomorrow,” which focuses on all things collaboration from multiple perspectives. Canon is now one of dozens of multinational companies that are members of The IMCCA.

“The pandemic has taught many organizations what is really required for effective hybrid teamwork, especially where the work required high bandwidth participation from both in-office and remote collaborators,” said Carol Zelkin, Executive Director of the IMCCA. “We are thrilled to have Canon join our ranks and share with our audience how the upcoming AMLOS solution can help drive new levels of meeting participation when creative collaboration is a requirement.”
