CPC Productions is known in the industry as a company that has the ability to cover all broadcast requirements. They have the ability to offer multi-camera setups for image magnification through to broadcast and provide video, audio and communications via their state-of-the-art OB truck. Recently they had a requirement for new lenses to be installed in the truck and for that they chose FUJINON.
As CPC Productions’ Senior Engineer and Designer Owen Forsyth explained, “We are an audio, lighting and video production company offering clients complete solutions. As part of that we have always owned camera equipment and have always used FUJINON lenses due to their quality and reliability. A while ago when were asked to supply the Billy Graham Evangelical Association with a complete 4K/UHD video solution for their Australian tour, we started the process of designing and building our own custom-made OB truck. In terms of lenses our big requirements were quality of picture, value for money and aftersales support. We also needed the lenses to be able to handle life on the road as part of the OB setup. FUJIFILM Australia and their FUJINON lenses simply stood head and shoulders above the competition.”
After an evaluation of all available lenses on the market Forsyth and the CPC Productions team chose multiple FUJINON XA77x9.5BERD, HA23x7.6BERD and HA18x5.5BERM lenses for exclusive use with their Panasonic AK-UC3000 4K/UHD cameras.
Forsyth concluded, “We use all of the lenses and our new OB truck in a variety of environments and productions including concert and live event capture and image magnification and always as part of an outside broadcast setup. The new FUJINON lenses we chose and use give us a sharper focus and more detail in the blacks than other brands we had looked at. Being used as part of full HD OB truck that is custom-laid out for concert and live events and that can also work in 4K HDR, also means these excellent lenses give us a great edge in terms of quality and creativity.”
