WAYNE, N.J., March 2, 2010 – Fujinon, Inc., a major manufacturer and distributor of optics and lens assemblies for the digital cinema, broadcast, and industrial markets, will show the XA88x9.3BESM-SK telephoto sports zoom lens with its Emmy Award-winning technology, Precision Focus Assist, at the 2010 NAB Show in Las Vegas, Nev., April 12-15 (Booth C7425).

Also new from Fujinon is an output connector to most sports lenses for virtual applications, such as creation of the first down marker in football, statistical displays and virtual advertising. No additional modifications to these lenses will be required as in the past.

All of the following Precision Focus Assist (PF)-equipped lenses will function on 2/3-inch HD cameras with the PF software interface: HA13x4.5BRD/PF ENG-Style super wide angle; HA22x7.3BRD/PF ENG-Style high performance HD lens; HA27x6.5 BESM/PF premium studio lens; XA88x8.8BESM/PF telephoto field lens; and the XA101x8.9BESM/PF. All are currently deliverable.

Fujinon and co-developer NHK won the 2009 Technical Emmy award for “Outstanding Achievement in Engineering Development? for Precision Focus Assist, a feature built within a lens that ensures fast, accurate focusing of high definition images under varying conditions. “The recognition for our Precision Focus Assist technology from The Academy of Television Arts and Sciences is an honor and reflects the importance of a lens that keeps pace with the latest camera technology,? said David Waddell, Marketing Manager for Fujinon. “With the mainstream explosion of large screen HDTV, an out-of-focus image is unbearable. In order to improve the quality of HDTV image capture in field and studio applications, Fujinon’s Precision Focus Assist is indispensable.?

Fujinon will also show its series of PL Mount Lenses featuring the fastest T speeds available in a family of zooms, with unprecedented color matched 4K optical performance. All four PL Mount zooms are similar in size and weight, and uniform gear placement and front barrel diameters enable quick and efficient lens changes.

The 18-85mm T2.0 and 75-400 mm T2.8-T3.8 PL mount zoom lens are the first models from the PL Series of zooms. The other two lenses in the series are the 24-180mm T2.6 and the 14.5-45mm T2.0. All lenses will be shown in the Fujinon booth.

Fujinon will also roll out its latest products related to 3D sports production.
