The HJ17ex7.6B ITS-RE/ME is wide angle of view portable lens offered by Canon to support diverse remote imaging applications including teleconferencing, distance learning, and specialized broadcasting applications. It is a member of a family of HD and SD remote control lenses that collectively offer an unusually broad range of creative options.
The HJ17ex7.6B ITS-RE/ME utilized breakthrough technologies and powerful computer-aided design techniques to produce a very wide-angle HDTV lens in a modest 4.5 lb package. It is a design directly responding to the expressed creative desires of broadcasters and HD producers for a truly versatile HD acquisition system.
The HJ17ex7.6B ITS-RE/ME represents a magnificent compromise between the demands for compact sized, light-weight and the exacting performance requirements for high-end HDTV production. The requisite optimization strategies to achieve this balance sought a high MTF over the entire image plane, minimization of chromatic aberrations, and maximization of image contrast. Preservation of the highest MTF at the wider angle focal lengths (where scene detail can be particularly high) was a special priority. RE is for a motorized 2X extender and ME is for a manual 2X extender.
