FUJIFILM Corporation announced the launch, in July, of portable broadcast zoom lens that offers exceptional optical performance for use with 4K cameras. Despite its lightweight and compact design, the latest release, FUJINON UA22x8 (hereinafter UA22x8) is a 22x zoom lens starting from 8mm on the wide-angle side, delivers an advanced level of mobility at the frontline of TV production. UA22x8, is a portable broadcast zoom lens with optical performance compatible with 4K cameras. Using the cutting-edge optical simulation technology, the lens achieves both the 22x zoom and advanced optical performance such as high image resolution, contrast and color reproduction. Covering the focal length from 8mm in wide angle to 176mm in telephoto, the lightweight and compact lens excels in handling versatile situations including live sport coverage, indoor /outdoor program production and news reporting. The floating focus system, which controls multiple lens groups according to the shooting distance, delivers high resolution and high contrast images from close-up to infinity, enabling 4K video production with a high realistic sensation and premium picture quality. With the demand for accurate focusing needed for 4K resolution, Fujinons new focus position demand unit, the EPD-31A, has improved from 12 bit to 16bit encoding. This product will be showcased at NAB 2015, a trade show of broadcasting equipment to be held in Las Vegas from April 13 to 16, 2015. Release date: July, 2015. Main features: Advanced optical performance that enables 4K compatibility under any shooting conditions The floating focus system, which controls multiple lens groups according to the shooting distance, minimizes performance variations caused by the change of shooting distance to deliver high resolution from close-up to infinity. It is combined with a unique zoom system that minimizes aberrations across the entire zoom range to achieve advanced optical performance compatible with 4K under any shooting conditions. Fujifilms proprietary multi-layer coating processing High Transmittance Electron Beam Coating (HT-EBC) is applied to the lens for enhanced transmittance and color reproduction. 4K footage with 22x zoom from 8mm in wide angle This lens covers a very useful range of focal lengths from 8mm in wide angle to 176mm in telephoto. The lightweight, compact and portable design makes it an ideal option for versatile situations including live sport coverage, live concert coverage, indoor /outdoor program production and news reporting, contributing to high realistic sensation in 4K video production. Best suited focus demand for 4K shooting With the demand for accurate focusing needed for 4K resolution, Fujinons new focus position demand unit, the EPD-31A, has improved from 12 bit to 16bit encoding. Equipped with16bit encoder. The lens comes with the 16-bit encoder, capable of making a high-resolution output of lens data including zoom and focal position information. It can be linked with various other systems such as a virtual studio system for combining CG images with live action footage. The sensor for converting position information into digital signals; Zoom and focus position data is divided in 16-bit resolution and output as electric signals. Main specifications: Note Model name UA22x8 BE; Camera specifications 2/3-inch sensor Bayonet-mount cameras; Focal length 8mm - 176mm 16mm - 352mm when using the 2? extender; Zoom ratio 22; F No 1.8 (8mm - 124mm) 2.55 (176mm); Minimum object: distance (M.O.D) 0.85m; Dimensions (Total length): 110?241.5mm; Weight (without the lens hood) 2.55kg.

Fujifilm Signs Joint Study Contract with BIOASTER

Fujifilm Corporation has signed a joint study contract for the evaluation of a rapid diagnostic system for the Ebola virus disease, or EVD, with BIOASTER. In order to contain EVD, which is prevailing in Western Africa, and to prevent a wide-scale outbreak of the disease, it is important to identify EVD patients at an early stage and implement initial response measures to break the chain of infection, and optimize use of vaccines and drugs. To this end, there is an urgent need to develop new technology and products for rapid rule-out diagnosis to be used on-the-spot with the patient. The joint study aims to establish a simple, rapid, small-size and portable diagnostic system to quickly detect EVD, with high diagnostic capabilities, comparable to molecular testing. This is to be achieved by combining Fujifilm's high sensitivity virus detection technology with Ebola virus antibodies which are produced and evaluated by BIOASTER, an institution well versed in the field of infectious diseases. This joint study is an international industry-and-government project by Fujifilm and BIOASTER, with both partners striving to solve public health problems around the world. The research will be conducted with cooperation from the French research institutions "CIRI" (joint research unit founded by INSERM, ENS de LYON, CNRS and UCBL) and the Jean Mrieux Biosafety Level 4 Laboratory in Lyon.
