WETA-TV focuses on future with Fujinon HD lenses

WETA, the public broadcasting station in the nation’s capital, has installed six Fujinon HA27X6.5 ESM HD studio lenses — all mounted on Sony HDC-1000L HD cameras.

The cameras are used to produce the PBS nightly news program “Newshour with Jim Lehrer,” which is produced in high-definition from WETA studios in Washington, D.C. To make the HD broadcast of the program possible, WETA worked with Newington, VA-based system integrator, Communications Engineering, Inc. (CEI) to build a new control room and HD-optimized set.

The construction, designed to enable the HD broadcast of “Newshour,” also serves other areas of WETA programming. The Fujinon lenses were chosen for their high image quality.
