Fujinon to Showcase its Latest HD Lens Innovations at GV Expo 2006

Publish date:

Fujinon continues to expand its presence in the corporate, educational and government video markets as it prepares for this year‘s Government Video Expo to be held December 5th - December 7th at the Washington, DC, Convention Center. Fujinon (Booth # 532) will showcase its HA22x7.8BRD-PF HD ENG lens with the company‘s patented Precision Focus Assist system, the HA42x9.7BERD HD ENG zoom with built-in OS-Tech image stabilization, the new HSs18x5.5BRM half-inch HD lens for Sony‘s HDC-X300 half-inch HD camera, and the HTs18x4.2BRM ENG lens for JVC‘s GY-HD100U HD camera.

“Fujinon‘s innovative and high-quality lens design has always been well received by producers working within government, education, or corporate entities,” said Dave Waddell, Marketing Manager, Fujinon. “That continues to be a very important customer base for us, and Fujinon continues to develop new technologies for video producers in those markets looking for high-quality HD lenses for their specific applications.”

Fujinon will display its patented Precision Focus Assist system to Government Video Expo attendees this year. Precision Focus Assist is a built-in feature that addresses precise focus issues in HDTV production stemming from the format‘s shallow depth of focus and the lack of size and resolution in camera viewfinders. The HA22x7.8BRD is a telephoto lens with a reduced size and weight (1.78kg), improved F number (F1.8) - maximum relative aperture of F1.8 (from 7.8-122mm) and reduced Minimum Object Distance (0.8m). Precision Focus Assist is also available on the company‘s XA101x8.9BESM HD zoom, HA22X7.3BRD HD EFP lens, the HA26x6.7ESM HD studio lens, and the HA13x4.5BRD-S28K HD wide-angle lens.

Fujinon will also show its established HA42x9.7BERD HD ENG zoom lens. The HA42x9.7BERD is a portable, stabilized telephoto ENG-style lens. The HDTV lens incorporates Fujinon‘s built-in OS-Tech image stabilization system that removes unwanted movement from typically unstable long shots. Like the HA22x7.8BRD lens, the HA42x9.7BERD features Fujinon‘s DIGI POWER digital servo control system and QuickZoom technology for rapid zoom movement.

Fujinon will also present its HSs18x5.5BRM-D38 lens designed for Sony‘s HDC-X300 half-inch HD camera. The lens features an 18x zoom range and a wide angle of 5.5mm, making it ideal for production or news applications. With a focal length range of 5.5mm to 100mm (11mm to 200mm with 2x) and a wide angle of view (64 degrees at 5.5mm), the lens provides crisp, clear pictures under all operating conditions. Designed to enhance the performance of the newest ½-inch ENG-style cameras, it features an 18x zoom ratio, a maximum relative aperture of 1.8 at 100mm, and a M.O.D. of 0.6m from the front of the lens.

Finally, Fujinon will show its HTs18x4.2BRM for the 1/3" JVC GY-HD100U HD camera. It has a focal length range of 4.2mm to 76mm and an 18x zoom ratio. It also includes Fujinon‘s DIGI POWER digital servo control system, digital Quick Zoom, and the Digital FIND (Focused Intelligent Network Diagnosis) system for preventative maintenance and trouble shooting.

Fujinon is a major manufacturer and distributor of optics and lens assemblies for the broadcast, digital cinema, and industrial markets. The company's line of television zoom lenses are used in virtually every segment of the broadcast industry, including electronic newsgathering, studio and field production, and high definition television.
