Fujinon will now make 3D optical technologies available to the TV broadcast production segment.

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.
