During the recent NAB Show held in Las Vegas, the Optical Devices Division of FUJIFILM won a “Best of Show” Award from staff members of NewBay Media’s TV Technology magazines (IBC Daily, TVB Europe). Honoured was the new FUJINON UA107x8.4 (UA107x) broadcast lens - the longest and widest 4K lens ever created for Ultra HD (UHD) broadcast applications. Part of the FUJINON Premier 4K product family, the UA107x 4K UHD lens provides superb 4K optical quality across the entire zoom focal range.
“We’re thrilled to be recognized by the staff of NewBay Media with a ‘Best of Show’ selection for our 107x 4K lens,” said Thom Calabro, Director - Marketing and Product Development for the Optical Division of FUJIFILM. “With an F number of f1.7 and a focal length of 8.4 to 900mm, the UA107x raises the bar for 4K UHD and HD production worldwide. It comes with patented OS-TECH optical image stabilization technology for rock-steady performance, even when making the longest UHD shots. With high resolution, high contrast, and high dynamic range (HDR) coatings, the UA107x produces images that are sure to impress.”
The UA107’s refined optical quality has been engineered using FUJIFILM’s latest optical simulation software, which was used to model the UA107’s large diameter aspherical elements. This lens has a multi-group zoom system that suppresses image distortion and ensures that 4K UHD images captured remain consistent and accurate from center to corner, making the UA107x a solid choice to complement today’s 4K 2/3” UHD cameras. A proprietary anti-fogging system reduces downtime due to moisture, a critical concern when shooting in all types of weather.
NewBay Media’s Best of Show Awards are evaluated by a panel of engineers and industry experts, and are selected based on innovation, feature set, cost efficiency and performance in serving the industry.
“Recognition with an award at the NAB Show from NewBay Media’s Broadcast & Video Group is a strong vote of confidence and admiration from our leading industry publications,” said NewBay Media Broadcast & Video Group Vice President & Group Publisher Eric Trabb.
As a three-time recipient of the prestigious “Emmy Award” for outstanding technological developments, the “IF Design Award” and “Red Dot Design Award”- Fujinon broadcast & cine lenses have repeatedly set the benchmark in the evolution of optical technology.
