NBC Olympics’ Production Of The 2014 Olympic Winter Games In Sochi To Utilize More Than 70 HDTV Field, Portable, And Studio Lenses From Canon

Canon U.S.A., Inc., has been selected to provide HDTV portable, field, and studio lenses to NBC Olympics, a division of the NBC Sports Group, during its presentation of the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, from February 6-23. The announcement was made today by David Mazza, Senior Vice President, Engineering, NBC Olympics, and Larry Thorpe, Senior Fellow, Professional Engineering & Solutions division of Canon U.S.A., Inc.

More than 70 Canon HDTV lenses in total are involved in the production. Models include the XJ100X9.3B AF long-zoom field lens and the XJ27X6.5B AF studio zoom lens, both of which feature sophisticated Canon auto-focus capabilities based on a proprietary HD implementation of Through-the-Lens Secondary Image Registration Phase Detection Method technology. Also helping to provide steady images from telephoto distances will be the portable HJ40X10B super telephoto HD lens featuring Canon Shift-IS internal Optical Shift Image Stabilization, and the compact HJ15EX8.5B image-stabilized HD lens with Canon’s patented Vari-Angle Prism image-stabilizer (VAP-IS) technology.

Additional Canon portable HDTV lenses being used by NBC Olympics during its presentation of the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, include the HJ14ex4.3B wide-angle zoom, the HJ22ex7.6B and HJ21ex7.5B long focal length zooms, HJ18ex28B portable ultra-telephoto HD lens, the HJ17ex7.7B high-end field production lens, and the KJ22ex7.6B multi-purpose portable HD lens. The Canon portable HDTV lens complement will also include the KH21ex5.7, KH16ex5.7, and KH10ex3.6 zoom lenses, which are designed for ENG/EFP-style cameras employing half-inch imagers.

“Canon is honored to once again be chosen by NBC Olympics as its lens provider,” stated Larry Thorpe, Senior Fellow, Professional Engineering & Solutions division, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “Canon has supplied NBC with lenses for its Olympics coverage since 1992. A wide variety of Canon’s most advanced field, studio, and portable HD lenses will be used by NBC Olympics to capture the action at the many winter sports venues in Sochi. A complete team of Canon service professionals will also be on-hand with NBC in Russia to ensure a positive production experience.”
