NBC names Canon USA exclusive lens provider for Summer Olympics
5/28/2004

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.
