MIRA Mobile Television in Portland, OR, has purchased 11 HD lenses from Fujinon for use on its new HD truck scheduled to roll out in November.
Dubbed M-5, the truck will provide live coverage of professional and college sporting events in the western United States.
Purchased lenses include four XA72x9.3BESM and two XA87x9.3BESM (with stabilization) HD zoom lenses, three HA22x7.8 BERM ENG lenses and two HA13x4.5BERM wide-angle lenses. The lenses will be affixed to Sony 1080/60p-format cameras.
The purchase comes on the heels of key sales to Trio Video and F&F Productions. Trio Video, in the Chicago area, purchased 10 Fujinon HD zoom and ENG lenses as part of an SD-to-HD upgrade within an existing production truck.
F&F Productions in Clearwater, FL, has bought several HD and ENG lenses for two HD production trucks due to roll out in the summer.
