NMT Using Canon HD Lenses for Baseball
National Mobile Television's (NMT) new 48-foot long truck, the HD10, is both an HD production studio and storage space for Grass Valley LDK-6000 cameras that are outfitted with a variety of Canon HD lenses--including a Digi Super100xs (XJ100x9.3B IE-D), three Digi Super 86 (XJ86x13.5B IE-D TELE), four Digi Super 75xs (XJ75x9.3B IE-D), and four portable HJ22ex7.6B lenses.

The mobile HD10, which is now being used primarily by Fox Sports in the Bay Area for Oakland A's and San Francisco Giants baseball games, was built by Venue Services Group (a subsidiary of NMT), based in Moonachie, N.J.

Canon's family of new Digi Super lenses features Canon's second-generation of its built-in optical Image Stabilizer (Shift-IS), engineered to correct image-shaking that accompanies telephoto focal lengths. The lenses will be used mostly for coverage of live sports and entertainment events.
