When millions are watching, glass matters

There’s a reason why Canon lenses can be found behind the most highly watched sporting events, news programs and live televised broadcasts across the planet. It’s because we don’t just make lenses for the broadcast industry. We make lenses with the broadcast industry. Ever since launching our first BCTV lens in 1958, we’ve partnered with leading producers and broadcasters in an ongoing effort to bring television professionals the high quality optics they need to deliver in even the most demanding of environments.
