New Fujinon 4K compatible broadcast lenses to launch at NAB 2017

Fujifilm will launch three new 4K compatible broadcast lenses at NAB in Las Vegas, expanding the range to include seven lenses. The UA18x5.5 is a light-weight, mid wide, the UA14x4.5 is an ultra-wide portable lens & the UA27x6.5 studio lens completes the current line-up.

The “UA18x5.5” covers the focal lengths of 5.5mm – 100mm to capture a wide range of scenes.  The “UA14x4.5” is an ultra-wide angle lens, covering the focal lengths of 4.5mm-63mm, putting you right in the midst of action. Both these lenses are due to ship in late April

The “UA27x6.5” is a 27x zoom lens that covers the focal lengths of 6.5mm – 180mm for versatility. “It is a UHD version of Fujinon’s most popular HD studio lens” said Stefan Czich of Pyser Optics, Fujinon’s distributor in the UK. It is due for release in June

The addition of the latest three models expands Fujifilm’s 4K broadcast lens line-up to 7 models in total, catering to the growing global needs for 4K video production



The demand for 4K-compatible broadcast equipment is spreading rapidly in Japan, Europe, North America, etc. for live broadcast of sporting events such as soccer and golf tournaments, as well as the production of dramas, documentaries and other genres of programs, produced either in the studio or outdoors.

Fujifilm released the world’s first 4K-compatible broadcast lens in 2015, and already offers four broadcast lens models in response to the expansion of the 4K broadcast market.  The company’s lenses are used in a wide range of applications in recognition of their premium image quality and superior operability.

The new “UA18x5.5,” “UA14x4.5” and “UA27x6.5” broadcast zoom lenses deliver 4K quality across their zoom ranges by preventing resolution degradation around the edges and controlling all types of aberrations.

The “UA18x5.5” and “UA14x4.5” are portable lenses with compact and lightweight bodies for advanced mobility.  With the recent market introduction of compact and lightweight “4K camcorders,” these lenses will accommodate an increasing number of videographers who shoot while carrying 4K equipment on their shoulder.  The “UA18x5.5” weighs 2.04kg and covers focal lengths from 5.5mm on the wide-angle end to 100mm on the telephoto end, making it useful for production situations that require added mobility such as news reporting and on-location production.  The “UA14x4.5” covers the ultra-wide angle focal length of 4.5mm despite its compact body, measuring just 238.5mm, allowing you to go up close and personal during live sport coverage or on-location production with a real sense of depth.

The “UA27x6.5” is a 4K-compatible 27x zoom lens, perfect for in-studio applications for news and variety shows.  With the wide-angle focal length of 6.5mm, it can also be used to give a full view of a concert venue in live coverage.  The “UA27x6.5” has a built-in extender*1, which doubles its focal lengths, covering up to 360mm in focal length while maintaining image quality in advanced definition.

The LUM-310R supports various HDR standards such as SMPTE ST2084, ST2086 and ST2094 (pending), Hybrid-Log Gamma (HLG), and more. It also supports multiple colour gamuts including Rec.709, DCI-P3, and Rec.2020. Signal I/O includes 3G/6G/12G-SDI input via one, two, or four SDI connections as well as HDMI (ver. 2.0).

The LEM-550R is a QC-Grade HDR monitor for broadcast and post production with a 55-inch OLED panel with UHD resolution of 3840 x 2160. The OLED panel can reproduce a maximum luminance of up to 750 nits. The LEM-550R supports various HDR standards such as SMPTE ST2084, ST2086 and ST2094 (pending), Hybrid-Log Gamma (HLG), and others. It also supports multiple colour gamuts including Rec.709, DCI, and Rec.2020. Signal I/O includes 3G/6G/12G-SDI input via one, two, or four SDI connections as well as HDMI (ver.2.0).

The VFM-055A is a 5.5-inch OLED (organic LED) on-camera viewfinder monitor with native 1920x1080 resolution. It offers truly cinematic image quality with deep blacks, wide-gamut colour reproduction, a very wide viewing angle, and support for multiple video formats via 3G-SDI and HDMI 1.4 inputs.

The new Fujinon HF-12M lens series

pic 01Incomparable…



Pyser-SGI has announced the launch of the new Fujinon HF-12M series as top-of-the-range machine vision lenses for use in inspection and measurement applications in production lines.

The HF-12M lenses can resolve high resolution of up to12 megapixels with a pixel pitch of 2.1µm. All models of the new series maintain a high level of even sharpness from the image center out to the corners and compensate for the resolution degradation that typically occurs when changing working distance or aperture value. This enables the consistent delivery of high-resolution images even under varying installation and shooting conditions at the manufacturing frontline.

The smallest lenses compatible with 2.1µm pixel pitch currently available.









New TVLogic SRM-074W

NOW available from Pyser-SGI:

NEW 7 inch broadcast HD LCD high-luminance capability field monitor from TVLogic gives clear viewing in the brightest sunlight

Now available from exclusive UK/Ireland distributor Pyser-SGI Limited is the new SRM-074W 7 inch Sunlight Readable field monitor only recently introduced by manufacturing market leaderTVLogic.

Offering the same high technical performance and operational features of the popular LVM-074W 7 inch widescreen HD LCD sister monitor, the new high-luminance capability SRM-074W provides clear, readable pictures when shooting outdoors in the brightest sunshine – instantly, at the touch of a button!

The new TVLogic SRM-074W provides clear, readable pictures in the brightest sunshine.


Said Stefan Czich, Divisional General Manager, Broadcast & CCTV Products Division: “Even in Northern Europe, obtaining a meaningful image on a field monitor in bright daylight can be a real challenge. With light reflecting off of concrete or snow the level of ambient illumination can reach some 50,000 lux - much greater than the 400 to 800 lux in the average office”.


“Whilst we would normally recommend a sun hood in very bright conditions”, continued Stefan Czich, “this is not always a satisfactory answer. When sharing a monitor with others, or looking at it from different angles, such as when using a Steadi-cam, a sun hood can be too large and unwieldy. In such situations the SRM-074W Sunlight Readable monitor - especially when taking into account its low cost compared to competitors - is of real benefit to outdoor production. Like its associated LVM-074W monitor, we expect the new TVLogic SRM-074W to become a best seller from the word go”.

Extra brightness …

When the high-luminance facility is switched on, the SRM-074W display brightness increases from the normal 400 Nit up to 1000 Nit.

Designed for DSLR cameras the new lightweight SRM-074W operates equally well as either a production monitor or on-camera display. With a white LED backlit high resolution 1024 x 600 (16:9) 7 inch panel, it accommodates multi-format analogue, 3G/Dual Link HD-SGI, SD-SDI, and HDMI signal inputs. The many features of the SRM-074W include waveform/vectorscope, built-in HDMI to HD-SDI conversion output, horizontal and vertical image flip, focus assist, and audio level meter.

… and many other user benefits

More key user benefits – as found in the associated LVM-074W and other TVLogic LVM Series monitors - are 1:1 pixel mapping, closed caption decoding, timecode display, and UMD support. In addition the monitor supports TVLogic’s colour calibration facility for optimum colour alignment.

A unique feature of the SRM-074W and LVM-074W is TVLogic’s new user selectable Temperature Adaptive Colour function that measures LCD panel temperature and automatically compensates for white balance drift caused by unusually hot or cold weather conditions.

The monitor is housed in a durable, yet lightweight, magnesium alloy case and measures just 240 x143 x 69 mm.

… plus ‘Wireless Solution Package”

Soon available from Pyser-SGI Limited is the new TVLogic TWH-100Tx/Rx transmitter and receiver package optimised for use with the SRM-074W and LVM-074W.*

Providing full HD resolution real time uncompressed video transmission and reception over a maximum of 50 m line-of-sight, the TWH-100Tx/Rx aleviates the need for cumbersome and heavy cables – significantly increasing production versatility, creativity and efficiency. Moreover, the wireless package comprises four receivers with the transmitter to provide multi-cast capability and simultaneous monitoring on four SRM-074W or LVM-074W monitors.
