Metrovisionâ€™s latest purchase continues a long-standing relationship with Fujinon. â€œMetrovision has witnessed major changes in the broadcast and video industry throughout our history, but all along, Fujinon has been the first word when it comes to lenses,â€? said Patrick Augustin, Metrovisionâ€™s Production and Technical Manager. â€œOur clients depend on their reputation for quality and flexibility, and so have we. We specifically chose the 101 and the 88 for use in our 40-foot HD truck, Metrovision HD-1. We consider them one of the major selling points of our remote services.â€?
Metrovision production services span a variety of events, including sporting events and entertainment such as the Breederâ€™s Cup and Major League Baseball.

â€œIn the production service business, thereâ€™s no telling where your equipment will be from day to day,â€? added Augustin. â€œHaving Fujinon glass means youâ€™re prepared for just about anything, whether the lens is positioned at the back of the house for an annual meeting or you need a long lens for an outdoor concert.â€?
