Optical Devices Division of FUJIFILM to Showcase High-Performance ENG-Style Lenses at CCW 2013

Wayne, N.J. – FUJIFILM North America Corporation, Optical Devices Division will use the upcoming Content & Communications World (Booth 815) as the venue to show off two of its high-performing ENG-Style lenses – the PL 14-35mm Cabrio wide-angle lens [ZK2.5x14] and the HA19x7.4BERM/BERD 2/3-inch Premier Series lens. CCW will be held at the Javits Convention Center in New York City on November 13-14.

“CCW has become an increasingly relevant show for the east coast broadcast and video production industries,” said Thom Calabro, director of marketing and product development for the Optical Devices Division of FUJIFILM North America Corporation. “It attracts the precise community who would benefit from these breakthrough lenses.”

Introduced at IBC in mid-September, the Premier PL 14-35mm Cabrio wide-angle lens [ZK2.5x14] is lightweight, easy to use with today’s 4K cameras, and has an expanded focal length range of 14-35mm at T2.9 with 200-degree focus rotation. It’s ideal for shooters looking for a lightweight zoom that can be used as a handheld. It has a detachable digital servo drive and can be used as a self-contained ENG-style lens or as a cine style lens.

The PL 14-35 mm lens offers exceptional optical performance in the center of the image and in the corners of the frame. The digital servo’s 16-bit encoding assures operators that all lens data output—including the position of the zoom, iris, and focus—is extremely accurate. The PL 14-35mm lens supports Lens Data System (LDS) and /i metadata formats, and can be controlled using cinema industry standard wireless controllers as well as existing FUJINON wired and wireless units.

Fujifilm’s FUJINON PL 14-35mm lens is the latest development in the company’s popular Cabrio series, which includes the recently introduced Premier PL 19-90mm, and the PL 85-300mm lenses.

The PL 14-35mm wide-angle zoom is now available.

The compact HA19x7.4BERM/BERD 2/3-inch Premier Series high-performance HD ENG/EFP production lens features three floating zoom groups and Aspherics, as well as the latest EBC coating, resulting in richer colors and improved blue response and transmittance.

“The advanced features are extremely important in the HDTV/big screen era as television viewers can see much more picture detail—including information in the corners of the screen—than ever before,” explained Calabro. “For this reason, it’s vital to have consistent resolution from edge to edge. With 16-bit encoders and 2.2X extenders as standard, this 19X lens ensures precision performance even in the most demanding HD production applications.”

Weighing only 3.3kg, the lightweight HA19x7.4BERM/BERD 2/3-inch lens is ideally suited to high-end ENG/EFP HDTV production, including entertainment, news, sports, and documentaries. A new ergonomic grip reduces operator fatigue, and the lens can be ordered with manual or servo focus and zoom.

The HA19x7.4BERM/BERD has advanced diagnostics and a short “MOD” or minimum object distance of 0.55mm, which allows shooting at closer distances.
