At NAB2004, Canon (booth# SU9649) will exhibit 13 new products that include a variety of options to meet individual users’ needs. The company is introducing its Anamorphic converter, which converts HD cinematography to CinemaScope size automatically. The converter can be used on any lens.
In the category of studio lenses, Canon's new compact HD studio lens combines high performance with an economical approach. There's the compact Canon DIGISUPER 22xs lens or XJ22x7.3B IE-D model, which provides high-quality optical performance for HDTV or SDTV in an extremely compact box-style design.
Also at NAB will be an affordable option for complementing Canon's DIGISUPER 25xs lens. The new XJ23x7B IE-D DIGISUPER lens offers an impressive f1.7 aperture, as well as a focal length of 7- to 161mm.
In addition to these new products, Canon will display the DIGISUPER XJ100x9.3B IE-D 100x lens, the DIGISUPER 86xs lens and DIGISUPER 75xs lens for field-production applications.
Camera operators often have to reshoot the same scene after changing the camera and/or lens position. Canon has integrated its e-IFxs/e-HDxs enhanced digital drive technology across the entire lens line, allowing operators to customize the multiple digital functions of their lenses with a high level of efficiency and precision. At the touch of a button this technology also enables the lens to automatically recall past settings.
Canon's new ENG/EFP lenses, designed to meet HD and SD shooting challenges, are lightweight and offer telephoto focal lengths for sports production, newsgathering, documentaries or stabilized helicopter systems. The portable HJ22ex7.6B lens with e-HDxs technology is the highest-quality tele-portable lens yet from Canon, and the new J35 series of lenses advances the art of portable long lens technology.
The company will also display its entire line of digital video camcorders, including the XL1s and GL2 digital video camcorders, its network video solutions and pan/tilt/zoom (P/T/Z) system cameras, and full line of projectors.
Canon's NU-700N, a turnkey network-controllable pan/tilt/zoom (P/T/Z) system, will also be shown. For broadcasters in need of a wireless high-bandwidth connection in situations where fiber is cost-prohibitive or logistically impossible, Canon offers its Canobeam DT-100 Series, an optical beam communications transceiver.
