Story Highlights

NBC Olympics will rely on Canon U.S.A to provide a wide variety of 4K UHD and HD field, portable and studio lenses for its production of the Tokyo Olympics from July 23-August 8. Lenses include the UHD-DIGISUPER 90 long-zoom field lens and Canon's 4K and HD lenses will be at every venue and studio in Tokyo, allowing viewers to see NBC Olympics' presentation of all the action.

Canon's UHD DIGISUPER90 is among the lenses that NBC Olympics will use for coverage of the Tokyo Olympics.

With today's multi-format camera systems, Canon has shown that it is on the forefront of providing advanced optics for today's UHD and HDR capable cameras, which we are utilizing at the Olympic Games, says Chip Adams, VP of Venue Engineering, NBC Olympics. The images, equipment and the support we receive from Canon are always exceptional and we look forward to partnering with them again for the Tokyo Olympics.

In addition, Canon service technicians will be on-site in Tokyo to ensure that every piece of equipment is in peak operating condition at all times.

We are honored to once again be able to showcase our finest broadcast digital imaging solutions and to be chosen as the broadcast lens provider for NBC Olympics, says Kazuto Ogawa, president and CEO, Canon U.S.A.
