Canon Shows 4K Broadcast Zoom Lens at NAB 2015
Developed as a new model in Canon’s DIGISUPER series of studio and field broadcasting lenses, which have garnered high acclaim from professionals in the industry, the 4K field zoom lens is for use with 4K-capable broadcast cameras featuring 2/3-inch sensors.
As 4K-resolution content, which traces its beginnings to the movie-production industry, continues to gain ground in the broadcasting industry, initiatives are currently underway to implement 4K broadcasting in countries around the world with an increasing number of professionals making use of equipment supporting 4K production. Canon wants to be able to offer solutions in the area, so they’re expanding their DIGISUPER series with this 4K model.
In addition to offering a high level of imaging performance supporting 4K-resolution video capture, the new lens will feature specifications and a body size that help facilitate a high level of operability and ease of use on par with Canon’s HD broadcast lens models, making it ideal for a wide range of applications, including sports and live concert telecasts.
