Canon recently opened its new technology and support center in Burbank, California. Select media outlets were invited to take a peak and DPReview was one of them.

From DPReview:

According to Elliot Peck, Canon Imaging and Technologies’ Executive Vice President, the project to build this new center started about a year ago when Canon realized that it was effectively out of space at its old Hollywood location. Canon designed a completely new facility from the ground up and took the opportunity to move to Burbank, at the heart of the filmmaking industry.

Part of the service facility is the lens room, where technicians can test and verify lens performance after repair. The room might be better described as a very wide hallway, stretching about 65 ft. (20m) in length. The extra distance allows technicians to mount lenses up to 600mm on a master body to check for optical alignment and resolution, meaning that all but a couple very specialized Canon lenses can be tested here. Take the full tour at DPReview

I’ve visited Canon’s Hollywood support center and came away impressed, but this new facility looks even better.

Canon seems oriented on big ticket items, and is moving even more into industrial products.  Apparently the big profits are there, their balance sheet is proving it.[

Canon seem to want honor the Swiss architect "Le Corbusier", Charles-Édouard Jeanneret-Gris. Those replicas of his cubist chairs don't look bad even if the classics was made chromed for color assimilation, and for longtime durability one could guess. He was well known not only for esthetics but also for wanting to make a social difference in the communities that he helped design.

Le Corbusier (and Charlotte Perriand, let's not forget...) armchairs are still made following the original design, and under exclusive license, by Italian furniture maker Cassina - which offers them in many different finishes. Each armchair costs more than a 5D4.... but after all that's Hollywood...

Anyone know when this facility opens to the public? I live in Burbank and would like to take my 5D Mk IV in for the C-Log update.
