(Leicester, United Kingdom--November 1, 2013) At BVE North 2013 Cooke Optics, the multi-award winning manufacturer of precision lenses for film and television, will demonstrate its miniS4/i lenses that are increasingly being used to bring an organic look to digital content for high end television dramas such as "Devious Maids" and "The Client List." The Leicester-based company will also show its T1.4 5/i prime lenses on Stand D28.
Robert Howard, CEO, Cooke Optics
, said, “We are seeing a continual growth in enquiries about our miniS4/i series
from people using PL mount digital cameras like the ARRI ALEXA and Sony F3 to shoot TV dramas. Cooke lenses bring a crucial element of ‘personality’ and warmth to digital images, and the price point for such high quality lenses is also very attractive. BVE North
gives us the opportunity to show the prolific TV production companies in the North West that our affordable Academy Award-winning technology will bring an extra dimension to their productions.”
Cooke miniS4/i lenses provide the same optical quality, resolution and reliability of Cooke’s S4/i and 5/i ranges, while being smaller, lighter and more affordable. The lenses also feature the next-generation /i Technology sensors that provide valuable lens data to post-production teams.
