Fujinon’s Synchronous Control System For Use With 3D Rigs

The HJ-303A-08A offers the flexibility of using existing standard Fujinon zoom and focus controls

3D HD is moving from the Big Screen into the living room. Fujinon is very active in this segment, as it has been cooperating with renowned DOP’s/Directors like ‘Vincent Pace & James Cameron’ since 2002. It is no secret that Fujinon lenses have also been used for the making of the groundbreaking 3D movie ‘AVATAR’ that launched a new era in movie making. Fujinon is now making 3D optical technologies available to the TV broadcast production segment.

3D Synchronous System HJ-303A-08A

In order to shoot 3D images the left and right camera lens must be the same focal length. (zoom angle). When utilizing zoom lenses the, zoom and focus position of the left and right lenses must match and the servo drives must not exhibit backlash. Most 3D rigs employ special servos and controllers. Fujinon’s synchronous system utilizes lenses which have precision servos that may be used in conjunction with 3D rigs or in normal 2D, productions with familiar video controllers.

The Fujinon 3D Synchronous System is quite simple to configure. Select from a wide variety of Fujinon 3D lenses, connect with the cables - 2 each of the SA-206H-1R3 or EC-212A-R80 - power the cameras and the Synchronous System automatically syncs the lenses for perfect zoom and focus control! The joint box is also equipped with an RS-232C interface which allows the system to be operated via computer. It is also possible to read out the encoder signals from one of the lenses to get information on the actual zoom and focus position.

The HJ-303A-08A offers the flexibility of using existing standard Fujinon zoom and focus controls. This unit additionally has a multitude of ports for production efficiency and operational flexibility. RS-232C serial data, encoder output, and raw encoder output are easily accesssed. An added benefit is through the use of the WL-325A, the 3D lenses can be controlled wirelessly from a distance of up to 300 ft.

The new 3D range HA23x7.6BEZD-T5DD, HA18x7.6BEZD-T5DD, HAs18x7.6BZD-T5DD, HA16x6.3BEZD-T5DD and XA4x7.5BMD-D3L/D3R lenses together with the new synchronous zoom & focus control joint-box (HJ-303A-08A) have been developed for 2/3-inch 3D applications. The new range of lenses display extreme small centering tolerances in the optical axis over the entire zoom and focus range, the zoom function also works without any mechanical- backlash. The new generation 3D HD lenses are controlled by the industry’s first universal fully synchronized 3D zoom & focus accessory-kit with serial data port.
