At the Television Centre at BBC Studioworks, a commercial subsidiary of the BBC, 22 Fujinon 4K HDR TV lenses were installed, enabling productions to be shot in both 4K and HDR.
On the company’s decision to invest in new 4K lenses, Elom Bell, Procurement Manager at BBC Studioworks said: “Television Centre needs to offer our clients the very latest technology, with full capability of hosting 4K and HDR productions. In the case of the lenses we provide, we need to ensure they last for many years to come. Fujinon delivered on time and spent a whole day on site, helping to test and configure all of the lenses”.
Marc Horner, Marketing Manager for Fujinon TV Lenses at Fujifilm UK, added: “Fujinon UA box and ENG lenses are simply the best on the market in terms of resolution and HDR capability. Light entering the lens is the first step in any production and anything that is lost at this stage cannot be recovered. This is why we have ensured our lenses contain the best technology to ensure every last detail is captured, and the blacks stay as black as possible.”
Since opening in September, Strictly Come Dancing’s popular spin off show, It Takes Two, and star-studded chat show, The Jonathan Ross Show, were some of the first productions to record at BBC Studioworks’ Television Centre facility.
The full kit list included 2x Fujinon UA80x9 1.2x EXT, 5x Fujinon UA14x4.5BE and 15x Fujinon UA27ｘ6.5BE.
