Band Pro And Schneider Kreuznach Launch New C-Mount Lenses

Band Pro Film & Digital Inc, a leading company in the field of High Definition, has teamed with optics manufacturer Schneider Kreuznach to produce a new line of HD C-mount lenses, specifically designed to enhance the performance of leading 1/3" HD cameras like the Iconix HD-RHIF and Toshiba IK-HD1.
Due to their compact size and extreme portability, new 1/3" chip cameras are fast becoming a popular choice for film and video production.
Band Pro's President Ammon Band said: "With the growing use of these cameras, we saw there was also a growing need for a new generation of high-end optics that would free them from the limitations of SD and raise their performance to the level of true high definition."
The new C-mount lenses, he explained, will be ideal for shooting everything from sporting events, commercials, and music videos, to television dramas and special shots in feature films.
The team plans to produce a family of lenses beginning with wide angle, normal and telephoto primes in 2009 with an eye to creating additional focal lengths and zooms in the future.
A recognised leader in the area of High Definition, Band Pro has an established track record for identifying and fulfilling the requirements of HD production, working with the manufacturers to improve the quality of equipment and accessories and bringing them up to HD standards.
Schneider Kreuznach is renowned for its comprehensive line of professional lenses, accessories and filters for still photography, cine and broadcast cameras and digital cinematography.
Schneider Kreuznach products are respected throughout the industry for their advanced design and unsurpassed quality.
The new HD C-mount lenses will be manufactured at Schneider in Bad Kreuznach, Germany, and distributed worldwide exclusively by Band Pro Film & Digital and its companies.
