As 4K-resolution content, which traces its beginnings to the movie-production industry, continues to gain ground in the broadcasting industry, initiatives are currently underway to implement 4K broadcasting in countries around the world with an increasing number of professionals making use of equipment supporting 4K production.

The 4K field zoom lens is being developed as a new model in Canon’s DIGISUPER series of studio and field broadcasting lenses, which have garnered high acclaim from professionals in the industry. In addition to offering a high level of imaging performance supporting 4K-resolution video capture, the new lens will feature specifications and a body size that help facilitate a high level of operability and ease of use on par with Canon’s HD broadcast lens models, making it ideal for a wide range of applications, including sports and live concert telecasts.

Details regarding product specifications and pricing are yet to be announced, however, Canon is aiming to market the 4K field zoom lens in late 2015, positioning it as the first model in the Company’s new UHD-DIGISUPER series. The new lens will bring together Canon’s latest optical technologies for use with 4K-capable and other next-generation broadcast cameras. In this way, Canon will continue responding to the needs of a wide range of users by further strengthening its broadcast lens lineup.
