Mobile TV Group Adds 15 Fujinon Lenses to Fleet
Just months after purchasing 12 Fujinon lenses this spring, Denver-based Mobile TV Group (MTVG) has added two UA107x8.4 (107x) 4K UHD lenses onto its 39 Flex 4K mobile unit, marking the first delivery of the lens in the U.S. since its introduction at NAB Show. MTVG also added 13 Fujinon HD lenses to its newest 40HDX HD production truck, which is outfitted with Grass Valley LDX Cameras, including:
Three XA99x8.4 BESM-T ultra-wide field production lenses
Six XA77x9.5BESM telephoto field lenses
Two ZA17x7.6BERD telephoto lenses with 2X extender
Two HA18x5.5BERD wide-angle zoom lenses with 2X extender. 
The 39 Flex was built to accommodate making major strides in 4K production, while the 40HDX is an addition to MTVG’s more traditional, though highly advanced, high definition fleet; the unit has four Super Slo-mo cameras and replay.

When asked about this latest purchase, Philip Garvin, GM of MTVG and Colorado Studios, said, “With an f-stop of 1.7 and a focal length of 8.4 to 900mm, we had to have the UA107x on our super busy 39 Flex. It will take our clients’ 4K productions to the next level. The optical quality across the zoom range is beyond anything I’ve seen. And any of our customers familiar with the FUJINON UA80x and XA99x field lenses will feel at home with the UA107x. It has all the same digital features.”

We at Fujifilm Optical Devices were delighted to learn that MTVG’s decision to add Fujinon lenses 40HDX was based on their team’s excellent experience with the Fujinon lenses on 39 Flex. We are thrilled to have our lenses on board their mobile units, especially considering their status as such a technically progressive leader in our industry, always on top of advanced production techniques. For example, MTVG’s 39 Flex was the first mobile unit built from the ground up for 4K live sports production. That’s something!
39 Flex has been on the road since its launch last March covering a wide array of live events including the Masters, the PGA Championships, major concerts, beach volleyball championships, and much more. 
For those unfamiliar with the UA107x, it is the longest and widest 4K lens created for Ultra HD (UHD) broadcast applications. It has a multi-group zoom system that suppresses image distortion and ensures that 4K UHD images captured remain consistent and accurate from center to corner. The lens’ refined optical quality has been engineered using Fujinon’s latest optical simulation software, which was used to model the UA107’s large diameter aspherical elements. A video describing the UA107x in more detail can be seen here if you’d like to learn more!
