Hi all,

I've just got a statement from Canon, who expressed their interest
before, but failed to submit their statement by the official deadline.

I skimmed their statement (below) and Canon would be a great addeition
to the discussion on "device APIs for TV" [1] (though their main
target is not TV but cameras and printers :).

What do you think?

Canon's statement
Canon has been a member of the W3C SVG WG since 1990 and contributed to
the development of the SVG core specification, as well as to various SVG
enhancements, including SVG Print, SVG Compositing, SVG Filters, and SVG

Our main focus on using Web technologies is to make Canon digital
devices "Cloud Service Ready" so that device functions and applications can
be enhanced with the help of We based services. We believe SVG and HTML5
technologies play a very important role on the device side as a means to
provide rich interactive user interfaces to cloud services.

Another important area for device Web applications include a technology
to allow Web application access to and good use of device specific
features. There is an activity within W3C called Device APIs and Policy
WG, but the current targeted of the WG is mostly limited to smart phones.
We would like to see similar technologies developed also for a wide
range of digital devices in mind including digital TV, digital cameras,
video cameras, and printers.
