ES Broadcast Hire has bought 11 Fujinon UA27x6.5BE and 22 Fujinon UA107x8.4BE lenses.
The new box lenses will sit alongside an existing inventory of Fujinon UA80x9BE 4K box lenses and UA14x4.5BERD and UA22x8BERD ENG lenses. The lenses are due for delivery in December and will be available for immediate hire.
The Fujinon lenses follow ES Broadcast Hire’s announcerment at September’s IBC that it was buying 100 Sony HDC-4300 4K camera channels, two Sony HDC-4800 ultra-slow-motion 4K camera channels, two Sony XVS-8000 4K vision mixers and several Grass Valley LDX 86N 4K camera channels.
The company has also purchased Canon UJ27 and UJ86 UHD lenses, along with Sony HDC-P43 4K cameras, in 2017.
Warren Taggart, Managing Director of ES Broadcast Hire said: “Our existing fleet of Fujinon lenses have proved popular, especially with our sports production clients. They have been used on prestigious sporting events such as the Monaco F1 Grand Prix, Premier League football, the Six Nations rugby championships and the UEFA Champions’ League final this year.
“It was an easy decision to augment our Fujinon line-up with these new lenses. The UA107 will expand our range of lenses for live sports, while the UA27 will appeal to studios for light entertainment, as well as fulfilling a role on the halfway line at football and rugby matches.”
The UA107 is a 107x zoom 4K box lens with a focal range of 8.4-900mm (16.8-1,800mm with the built-in 2x extender). The UA27 offers 27x zoom, with a focal range of 6.5mm to 180mm (13-360mm with the built-in 2x extender).
