Bringing the office home

Bringing the office home
 
powered by Sounder



If there’s one thing we’ve all become exceptionally good at over the past 18 months, it’s making our work-from-home situations as comfortable and efficient as possible.

Whether it’s enhanced webcams, printers, copiers or even that fancy office chair that you just couldn’t live without, companies all over the world are having to rethink the way that they provide technology to their employees, especially as more and more are hesitant to return to the office.

On this episode of B2B Tech Talk, we sit down with Kevin Price, a Senior Marketing Manager of Strategy at Canon USA. On this episode, we talked all about:

  • The webcam revolution and how you can look your best
  • How Canon is readjusting their product offerings to gear to a WFH situation
  • The drastic changes in print-from-home habits of most Americans
  • Where technology is going in the next year

 

The Webcam Revolution

Let’s face it—most of us are spending more time on camera than ever. Whether it’s work calls, virtual doctors’ appointments or interactions with your kids’ teachers via Zoom, we’re all becoming used to staring at our own faces.

Canon has developed a way for you to be a little more comfortable with your appearance as you slog through yet another Zoom meeting. The Canon EOS webcam utility is a software that works with your current webcam, taking your image quality from average to astounding.

It delivers the highest optic display you could ask for, allowing you to look your best, even if you’d rather be anywhere else than another virtual meeting.

The Print-From-Home Demand

Raise your hand if you’re guilty of printing personal things on the office printer. Whether it’s release forms, permission slips or applications, the printing that we all used to save for the office has all of a sudden come home with us.

While inventory has struggled, there hasn’t ever been a demand quite like there was at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. As we were all driven to our homes, it became more important than ever to try to deliver office quality printing at home.

Historically, the difference between office and home technology have been drastic. Canon is working to streamline and simplify engagement with printing technology, to deliver as close to an office experience as possible, all while staying in your sweats.

Printer Security

We may be printing more at home, but with that comes increased vulnerability. Especially if the printer you're using is not a corporate issued one, but just one you went and bought at the store.

It’s crucial that you secure those devices as much as possible. Every open home printer port represents another potential vulnerability. Another place for a malicious actor to gain access to both your home and corporate network.

How can Canon help you secure your home office?
