Edmund Optics® and Infinity Photo-Optical Partner on New Cinematography Products
Edmund Optics® (EO), the premier provider of optical and imaging components, announces the expansion of their partnership with Infinity Photo-Optical, inventors of continuously-focusable and internal-focusing microscopy products from Centennial, Colorado, USA.
EO and Infinity have worked together for over 25 years, bringing Infinity’s unique, award-winning lenses to market. This new collaboration continues and expands that partnership into the cinematography arena.
Greg Hollows, Vice President of the Imaging Business Unit stated, "EO and Infinity have always worked closely together and this new venture is no different. Our combined strengths will complement each other as we strive to serve customers in this creative space. Continuing the successful formula of combining Infinity’s design and product development with EO’s sales, marketing and distribution, this partnership will ensure we deliver award-winning products to our global customers with same-day shipping and 24-hour product and application support."
This new line of products, marketed under the name Nelsonian Optics™, pays tribute to E. M. Nelson, the first to translate and promote the diffraction theories of Abbe in English. The initial launch will include two product families, the ROBUSTO™ and the MikroMak™. These innovative products are the result of a unique approach to optical design allowing a single lens to focus to infinity with all details sharply in focus to a near range. This ability greatly increases the creative functionality of the lens and the results are much more dramatic for both still photography and cinematography.
