Corplex acquires Canon HD lenses for mobile production
Mobile production services provider Corplex recently purchased a selection of HD lenses from the broadcast and communications division of Canon U.S.A.
The purchase included two DIGISUPER100xs and five DIGISUPER86xs long-zoom HD field lenses with Canon’s Optical Shift Image Stabilizer (Shift-IS) technology.
Corplex also acquired two Canon HD portable lens models for EFP-style coverage on the playing field: the HJ11ex4.7B IRSE wide-angle zoom and the HJ22ex7.6B IRSE long focal-length zoom.
Canon’s Shift-IS Image Stabilizer interfaces with the Vinten Vector 950 Active pan/tilt head system to integrate its stabilization capabilities with the real-time digital positioning data from high-resolution optical encoders built into the Vector 950.
A serial digital communication link between the lens and pan/tilt head transmits information that definitively separates camera operational control of pan and tilt from unwanted motion disturbances created by vibration, wind or other physical factors.
