An interview from the 2019 International Broadcasting Convention in Amsterdam with Gordon Tubbs of Fujifilm/Fujinon. The Optical Devices Division of Fujifilm provides optical lenses for the broadcast, cinematography, closed circuit television, videography and industrial markets, and markets binoculars.

The new FUJIFILM UA UA107x8.4BESM is the longest and widest 4K lens for Ultra HD Broadcast applications. The UA107x8.4BESM delivers 4K optical quality which is a hallmark FUJINON "ZK series" of cine lenses. The optical quality is based on large diameter aspherical elements designed by their latest optical simulation system. Also, the lens achieves 4K UHD optical performance while suppressing image distortion due to a multi-group zoom system. Designed to produce 4K UHD performance from today's new 4K 2/3" Ultra HD cameras.

The UA107x8.4BESM employs the latest High Transmittance Electron Beam Coating (HT-EBC) resulting in richer colors and greatly improved blue response and transmittance. HT-EBC, coupled with Fujifilm's exclusive Aspheric Technology, reduces ghost and flare and increases light transmission. The high resolution, high contrast, and high dynamic range of the UA107x will produce images that will impress. A proprietary anti-fogging design minimizes lens fogging and reduces downtime due to moisture—a critical concern when shooting in all types of weather conditions.

Designed along the same parameters of the UA80x and XA99x, the UA107x will have all the same digital features; F number limit, Quick Zoom, two-shot presets, a 2X extender, and other precision digital functions increasing production flexibility. The UA107x8.4BESM features a patented optical image stabilization technology OS-TECH, for rock-steady performance, which is especially critical for long-distance HD shots. With an F no. of 1.7, virtual reality connections, and 16 bit encoders, the UA107x8.4BESM is sure to be the new standard for 4K UHD and HD production worldwide.
