Rochester, NY, 14623

Press release date: April 29, 2014

ROCHESTER, NEW YORK – Navitar, a global leader in optical technology, continues to strengthen its position in the 4K projection arena by collaborating with projector manufacturer, Sony Corporation, to develop a 0.90:1 wide angle lens exclusively for the SRX-T615 4K digital projector for industrial, visualization and simulation applications. While Navitar has designed many custom lenses for the 4K projection space, this is the first lens for wide angle flat screen 4K applications developed for distribution as part of a projector manufacturer's prime lens line-up. 

Navitar's 4K-S-0.90 is the widest angle lens available for Sony's new 1.46" 4K SXRD digital projector platform. The 4K-S-0.90 lens provides a 0.90:1 throw ratio at a 29.5mm focal length. With a F/# of 2.5 and maximum shift of +/- 30% full chip, the lens delivers bright, sharp images from the center to the edge of the field. 

Engineers from Sony Corporation and Sander Phipps, Product Manager, Sony's Professional Displays, visited Navitar's Rochester, NY facility in early January 2014 for prototype testing. Sony looked to industry leaders in projection lens development to design a solution that would complement the SRX-T615 and provide a complete high performance system to satisfy our customers' needs. Navitar's experienced engineering team produced a high-quality wide angle accessory lens that we are extremely pleased with," comments Mr. Phipps. 

Navitar will sell the lens direct to system integrators and users. In addition, Sony will list the lens as a projector accessory in its SRX-T615 product literature and webpage listing Navitar as the vendor. The projector's 4K resolution, color accuracy, uniformity and contrast make it ideal for a variety of applications, including visualization (C4ISR - Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance), simulation (entertainment), auditorium (museums, education, and planetarium) and production (broadcasting). The Navitar 4K-S-0.90 lens will be showcased at the upcoming InfoComm 2014 show in Las Vegas, NV in both Navitar's (#5334) and Sony Electronics' (#8908) booths. Orders are now being accepted by Navitar for the 0.90 lens. Sony's SRX-T615 projector, introduced in late 2013, is also available at this time.
