TVM and Iris opt for Fujinon lenses
Fujifilm has been selected by Irish companies Television Mobiles Ltd (TVM) and IRIS Ltd for Fujinon HD broadcast lenses. TVM Television Mobiles was established in 1986 and has built a reputation as a leading provider of OB services from Ireland. TVM and its sister company IRIS deploy the latest production technologies and experienced operators in order to guarantee quality production results.
TVM and IRIS recently acquired several Fujinon HD Box lens models XA99x8.4 with a focal range of 8.4-1664mm, XA77x9.5 with 9.5-1464mm and the XA55x9.5 with 9.5-1050. These HD Box lenses are combined with HD ENG HA42x9.7 and HA23x7.6 lenses which will be deployed on prominent Irish horse racing tracks for the National Hunt & flat races. These HD EFP lenses are all fully loaded with on board OS-Tech optical stabilisation, including 16.bit encoder and serial communication, and they are compact in size and mass for the given lens category.
Since it is also compatible with focal lengths from 9.5mm to 525mm, HD Box lens shows excellent performance in sports broadcasts, concerts and live productions. The lens incorporates the bespoke 16bit encoder which outputs zoom, focus position and other lens data at high resolution. It can work with virtual system that combines CG image with live shooting image. Since it has a built-in lens supporter to which portable ENG cameras can be directly attached makes it the most flexible HD EFP lens in its category.
