Thanks to everyone who joined us on December 10, 2015 at our Burbank Headquarters for Band Pro's One World Open House 2015!

This year IB/E President, Klaus Eckerl and Band Pro President & CEO, Amnon Band unveiled a new line of professional APO Macro FF lenses.  The new macro lenses were designed to address the industry-wide movement toward larger format sensors (including RED Weapon 6K and 8K, Sony A7, and ARRI ALEXA 65 cameras).  These larger sensors deliver a convincing film-look and interesting bokeh due to their very shallow depth of field, and require lenses that can cover their larger camera sensor sizes.

The new APO Macro FF lens family consists of 3 focal lengths: 100mm, 150mm, and 180mm.  The lenses feature full frame (24mm x 36mm) coverage, 1:1 magnification, consistent T-stop T2.9, as well as robust and durable cine mechanics.  Based in Germany, IB/E is a globally respected optics manufacturer known for cutting edge expanders, adapters, and lenses, including the new Arri 65 lenses.

APO Macro FF lenses will be available Summer 2016.

Band Pro also congratulated DP James Neihouse (IMAX Space Station 3D, Imax Hubble 3D) on his recently announced (and much deserved) ASC Membership.  

This year Band Pro also honored Film and Digital Times Magazine editor Jon Fauer on the 10th Anniversary of the publication, and a special award was presented at the event by Band Pro's President & CEO, Amnon Band.

Each year Band Pro features a cross section of the industry’s best new technology and this year was be no different.   We hosted over thirty top broadcast and cinema equipment manufacturers under the tent outside, with great international cuisine and beverages served inside.  See our Exhibitor List at the bottom of the page for this year's list of participating manufacturers.

Band Pro's tent exhibition space featured a dynamic, interactive camera, recording, and workflow environment where products will be displayed as they are actually used on set; together with dedicated Exhibitor Tables.  We also featured a designated Display Viewing Area screening Band Pro's 4K short film 'En Vino Veritas' shot on location at Francis Ford Coppola's Inglenook Winery, new 4K footage from Sony, Canon, and RED, and loads of additional exclusive 4K content. 

Again thanks to everyone who came down.  I you couldn't make it, here's some photos from the day..
