Hofstra Teaches with Canon Lenses

Hofstra University has purchased four new Canon professional broadcast lenses to use at its video training facilities.

Three PJ20x8 BIE, or Super E20, lenses and one J11ax4.5 WRS wide-angle lens will be part of the lesson plan for students of the university's School of Communications, where the curriculum requires broadcast-quality lenses. The Canon Super E20 features the IF Internal Focus system, the Crossover system for 4:3 and 16:9 operation on switchable cameras and a built-in supporter for the lens and camera combination, with applications in news-gathering, entertainment and sports. The J11ax4.5 IRS/IAS features a viewing capability of 101.14 degrees at diagonal in 4:3, and 11x zoom ratio.
