Fujinon, a major manufacturer and distributor of optics and lens assemblies for the broadcast, digital cinema, and industrial markets, will showcase several HD lenses at the upcoming HD World Conference and Exposition, which runs Oct. 14-15, 2009, at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City (Booth #1317). The company will feature its XA22x7BES Compact Studio HD Lens, HA42x9.7BERD Telephoto Lens, and ZA series of lenses for 2/3-inch HD cameras.
“The HD World Conference is an important event for broadcasters,” said Dave Waddell, Marketing Manager for Fujinon. “We are gearing our demonstrations for television professionals looking for the best quality lenses to suit a variety of needs. Producers and videographers have found our ZA series of lenses an affordable option well-suited to a wide range of productions.”
XA22x7BES Compact Studio HD Lens
Fujinon’s XA22x7BES compact, HD studio lens is designed with an eye toward stations using ENG-type cameras for studio applications, as well as those employing smaller field production units. The XA22x7BES is a lightweight box lens that provides higher optical quality than standard ENG-type lenses, combined with the zoom and focus performance of a larger studio lens. It is well suited for shooting in tight locations and smaller studios.
HA42x9.7BERD Telephoto Lens
The HA42x9.7BERD Telephoto Lens is a Premier Series Stabilized Telephoto ENG style lens with 42x zoom plus a 2x extender for large venues or sporting events. It includes Fujinon’s DIGI POWER digital servo remote control for full servo studio control, which makes it an ideal choice for robotics, jibs, and tower cams.
“These affordable, high-performance ENG lenses will open the door to producing many more news, sports, special events, and independent productions in HD,” said Waddell. “Plus, all ZA Series lenses feature our DIGI POWER digital servo control system for precise control in both field and studio applications. ZA Series lenses are the perfect complement for today’s low-cost 2/3-inch HD cameras.”
The ZA22x7.6BERM ENG-style HD telephoto lens has 22x zoom, a 7.6 focal length at the wide end, and 167mm focal length at the telephoto end. A 2x extender is incorporated for extreme telephoto shots. The ZA17x7.6BERM standard HD ENG lens provides 17x zoom and 2x extender, with a 7.6 focal length at the wide end and 130mm focal length at the telephoto end. And the ZA12x4.5BERM, a wide-angle HD ENG lens, features 12x zoom with 2x extender, 4.5 focal length at the wide end, and 54mm focal length at the telephoto end.
