New FUJINON Broadcast Zoom Lenses Equipped With Digital Drive Unit

FUJIFILM has launched the FUJINON broadcast portable zoom lenses featuring the newly-developed digital drive unit ‘S10’ (18 models). These lenses are equipped with the S10 to deliver precise zooming and focusing to support remote recording based on a robotic system, which is growing in demand at video production site.

The new FUJINON broadcast zoom lenses (18 models) are equipped with the digital drive unit ‘S10,’ developed with the cutting-edge mechatronics technology. These lenses have improved drive unit response to zoom and focus without delay even during pan & tilt operations. They use accurate and swift zooming and focusing to precisely capture a fast-moving subject during live sport broadcast, while enabling ultra-slow and smooth zooming and focusing during live music coverage to deliver expressive video. Remote shooting based on the robotic system thus achieves high-quality video production equivalent to video recording captured with a real videographer’s advanced skills.

These lenses can also output positional information on zoom, focus and even iris which allows the high-precision position detection. This means live video footage can be combined with virtual video in optimum settings, thereby catering to the growing demand for virtual video production.

In addition, enhanced zoom and focus response helps camera operators shoot video exactly as intended even when using with the zoom demand / focus demand units or when handling the equipment with a camera on the shoulder.
