Venezuela's Meridiano Television focuses on Fujinon HD lenses

Meridiano Television, Venezuela's largest terrestrial sports network, based in Caracas, is using long-range, HD zoom lens from Fujinon to cover live sporting events. Meridiano will use the Fujinon XA101x8.9BESM zoom lens for the Caribbean World Series, Series del Caribe, which pits teams from the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Venezuela and Puerto Rico against each other.

Inaki Aznar, Manager of Engineering for Meridiano Television‚ said the new zoom lens helps his crews create a much more vibrant broadcast, complete with shots they've never achieved before. A long-time customer, 95 percent of Meridiano's lenses are from Fujinon. They currently have two AH50X9.5ESM telephoto ENG lenses, three A20x8.6 EFP lenses and a CPT-70 pan/tilt system.

With the widest angle of any high magnification sports lens in the industry, the XA101x8.9BESM zoom offers 101x magnification and image stabilization. This makes it ideal for shooting widescreen 16:9 HD as well as 4:3 standard-definition images. The XA101x8.9BESM includes Fujinon's exclusive built-in OS-Tech optical stabilization system for rock-steady, crystal-clear image capture, while the built in moisture removal system keeps the lens operating even under the harshest conditions.

Multiple moving zoom groups designed into the XA101x8.9BESM lens minimize coma and field curvature while reducing overall size and weight. In addition, Fujinon's advanced back focus technology enables remote control of macro and focus fade on wide shots.

With higher resolutions and larger HD screens, wide shots using very wide lenses can be a problem because they allow viewers to see that infinity doesn’t quite resolve into perfect sharpness.
