A purchase operation close to 2.8 billion dollars could give Canon the possibility of entering the market for IP cameras, including image processing technologies, if the acquisition of the Swedish firm finally comes to fruition.
Cameras account for almost 40 percent of Canon’s total business and, in the same way that smartphones have skyrocketed compact digital camera sales, the firm hopes to give a significant boost to its IP cameras within the medical hospital sector.
Axis image processing technologies will enhance Canon’s offering, while the Japanese manufacturer’s optical technology, such as the 50 megapixel sensor in the new 5DS digital SLR, could greatly enhance Axis’ line of cameras.
