Angénieux’s development teams, in their continuous passion to meet Angénieux customers’ and users’ needs, continuously strive to develop innovative solutions to increase Angénieux lens versatility and creative ability.
Angénieux has pioneered a revolutionary modular lens design that enables different lens configurations. The IRO Technology™, standing for Interchangeable Rear Optics, allows the lens technicians at rental houses to convert the 10x anamorphic zoom – the Optimo 44-440 A2S – into a 10x spherical zoom, while maintaining pristine image quality that users would expect from their Optimo lens.
At NAB 2017, to add an even more distinctive look to the Angénieux anamorphic image, Angénieux presents two new stand –alone accessories for its anamorphic line. The two short zooms -Optimo 56-152A2S and 30-72A2S -can be equipped with an uncoated front element which offers a softer contrast image with additional flares around highlights, whereas the 10x Optimo 44-440A2S can be fitted with a special coated rear element that enhances blue flare. Both accessories can be bought separately and be installed (or removed) by lens technicians without affecting the superb basic image characteristics such as well controlled breathing and distortion. These two new accessories will be available Q3/2017.
