New Fujinon 4K Zoom Lens Is Showcased on MTVG’s New 4K Truck
Fujinon’s new UA80x9 4K UHD lens will be featured on a Grass Valley LDX 81 4K camera on Mobile TV Group’s new 38FLEX 4K production truck. Being unveiled at NAB 2015, the 53-ft. expando truck is capable of sports and entertainment productions with up to 12 4K cameras.
The Optical Devices Division of Fujifilm will exhibit in Booth C7025. The 38FLEX truck will be in the Gerling and Associates booth (OE601).
Designed for a ⅔-in. sensor, the new Fujinon UA80X9 has an 80X zoom and optical image stabilization, suiting it for live coverage of large-scale events, such as concerts and sports. In addition to its advanced optical performance, the lens covers focal lengths from 9mm in wide angle to 720mm in telephoto.
Designed using the latest proprietary optical-simulation software, the UA80x9 offers exceptional optical performance in the center of the image through to the corners of the frame. The digital servo’s 16-bit encoding assures operators that all lens-data output — including position of the zoom, iris, and focus — is extremely accurate. The lens can be linked with other systems, such as a virtual-studio system for combining CG images with live action.
“We’re thrilled to showcase our 4K truck at NAB this year,” says Philip Garvin, president/founder, MTVG. “And we’re proud to include a lens with the optical performance and quality of Fujinon’s UA80x9 on the Grass Valley LDX 81. The performance of the camera and lens on our new 4K truck will be vital in demonstrating the production possibilities of 4K for live broadcast today. They represent what this truck can do in the best possible light.”
