Lake Success-based Canon U.S.A. Inc. says its Southern California satellite office for the professional imaging industry -- including cinema, TV and still photography -- is up and running on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood.

The company said Tuesday that the site, dubbed the Hollywood Professional Technology and Support Center, "is fully operational, offering comprehensive product repair and support services for Canon’s professional products."

The location is at the Sunset Gower Studios lot at 6060 Sunset Blvd. It's part of Canon's effort to study the imaging industries, to anticipate new trends, and to support and retain its professional customer base.

“This is an amazing time for Canon, as just a few weeks ago we started shipping the new Cinema EOS C300 cameras and EF Cinema lenses," Yuichi Ishizuka, the company's executive vice president and general manager for imaging technologies and communications, said.

"As we enter these new and exciting markets, we are proud to offer Canon’s convenient, timely and high quality service and support to professionals working in and around Hollywood," Ishizuka said in a Tuesday statement.

The center is staffed with Canon's research and solution engineers who will look to the future needs of entertainment producers.

Canon U.S.A. is preparing for a move to Melville, where it is building a new headquarters.
