NBC names Canon USA exclusive lens provider for Summer Olympics
Broadcast lenses from Canon USA will be used exclusively by NBC Olympics to capture each Olympic moment this summer in Athens.
NBC will use Canon HD and SD-ready lenses, such as the DIGISUPER 100xs, DIGISUPER 86xs and DIGISUPER 75xs long lenses.
Canon USA also will provide on-site technical support throughout the duration of the games. The 2004 Olympic Games represent the fifth consecutive all-Canon Olympics for NBC.
NBC’s HDTV and SDTV coverage of the Athens Olympics August 13 – 29, will more than triple the total amount from the 2000 Sydney Games.
The network will use Canon HD and SD-ready lenses, such as the DIGISUPER 100xs, DIGISUPER 86xs and DIGISUPER 75xs long lenses, as well as the e-IFxs ENG/EFP lenses, including the HJ22ex7.6B model, and the wide-angle J11ex4.5B model.
