Tiffen Releases New High Trans Multi Coated Filter Kits
Hauppauge, N.Y. - The Tiffen Company, a leading manufacturer of award winning accessories for the still imaging, motion picture and broadcast markets, today announced the release of a series of New Digital HT® Filter Kits. The kits, available in the Twin Pack (Digital Ultra Clear and Circular Polarizer) and the ND Kit (ND 0.6, 1.2 and Color-Grad® ND0.6), come with a padded 4 filter belt loop style filter case. The Digital HT Filters offer superior transmission, are easy to clean and scratch resistant, and are made with optically pure Water White glass and Tiffen's ColorCore(TM) technology. They also come with a 10 year warranty. These filters offer a substantial savings over individual filter purchases and are available in sizes 52mm-82mm. . Each filter comes with its own distinctive soft pouch for storage when not in use.
Digital HT filters are a state-of-the-art technological breakthrough in multi-coated photo and video filters. Made for the discerning professional and imaging enthusiast, Digital HT filters with Hi-Trans® Double-Sided Titanium Multi-Coating surpass even military specifications for hardness and durability.*Digital HT - High Transmission - filters offer the strength of a Titanium coating combined with the purest optical quality glass and Tiffen's Academy-Award-winning ColorCore(TM) technology. They present unmatched scratch-resistant durability and worry-free cleaning while other coated filters on the market today cautiously suggest delicate, if any, cleaning procedures, in fear of destroying the coating (and thereby the filter). And that's not all - these High Transmission filters feature a low profile titanium- finish ring and anti-reflective black lock ring which sets these filters apart from the rest.
Digital HT(TM) filters are made in the USA and come with a 10-year warranty - your guarantee of quality assurance.
Tiffen's research and development team has conquered the challenges of multi-coating. No longer is your investment in a multi-coated filter subject to the everyday challenges of dirt, humidity, and potential scratching which can render your multi-coated filter useless.
Along with the extreme toughness and durability, Tiffen Digital HT Titanium Coating features excellent Anti-Reflective and Transmission (HT - High Transmission) characteristics. The Titanium coating consistently reflects less than 1% of the imaging light hitting the front surface of the filter, while transmitting nearly 99%.
Tiffen filters are used in almost every major movie and TV production around the world. Tiffen has been honored with two Technical Achievement Awards from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences: one for innovative product design, and the other for its unique lamination process which gives complete control over filter color and density. In 2000, the Academy presented Nat Tiffen with a Scientific and Engineering Award for consistency in filter quality. Tiffen also received a 1998 Emmy Award for Engineering Excellence, as well as numerous other awards for innovative filter technology.
