EPTV (Établissement public de télévision) Algeria is the national agency that coordinates public television broadcasting for following television channels; Canal Algerie, Algerie 3, Amzigh TV4, Tamazight and religious channel Coran TV5. EPTV was the main television channel until French speaking channel Canal Algérie was created in 1994.

EPTV was also appointed as consultant for media installations and operations at the newly built CIC International Convention Centre in Algiers. With a total project cost of USD 700 Mio and 230.000 square meters of space; it will be one of the most advanced and spacious convention centres on the African continent. The centre incorporates full HDTV production capabilities, including virtual sets, play-out and broadcast transmition facilities that meet current international standards.

Italian System Integrator MediaCom was chosen as contractor for media installations at the newly built convention centre which is slated to be opened to the public in October 2014. FUJIFILM will deliver a total of forty (40) pieces Fujinon HDTV lenses (Model: 8.pcs x HA14x4.5, 26.pcs x HA23x7.6, 6.pcs x HA42x13.5) that are going to be utilized in combination with Sony cameras on Vinten Robotic systems which have been installed throughout the convention centre.

In a separte project EPTV aqcuired new Sony XDCams and additional forty (40) Fujinon HA16x6.3 HDTV lenses. With the latest acquisition EPTV increased its efforts to migrate production capabilities from SD to HD throughtout its regional networks and have taken a huge step towards completion of the migration process .

In closing he stated: The optical quality is unsurpassed in its segment, with great product training, warranty terms and after-sales support Fujinon was the natural choice.

Mr. Jamel Kheroua (EPTV Project Director) comments on the recent acquisition; We have chosen the Fujinon HA16x6.3 HDTV lens model because it gives us dual use capabilities, as our ENG crews no longer need to carry two lenses, which are usually composed of a telephoto and a wide angle lens. The HA16x6.3 provides a focal range of 6.3mm on the wide side to 202mm at the telephoto end, which is ideal for ENG productions with versitatile requirements. In addition, we were able to save cost by just having to purchase one instaed of two lenses.

In closing he stated: The optical quality is unsurpassed in its segment, with great product training, warranty terms and after-sales support Fujinon was the natural choice.

With the HA16x6.3 lens model, Fujinon provides more flexibility for news and field productions, giving the camera operator an outstanding tool, fulfilling all their requirements in just one lens. Excellent ramping characteristics combined with minimal ghosting and flare, reduced pumping, minimised longitudinal and lateral chromatic aberration, enhanced colour transmission and high MTF values make this standard lens the ideal two2 in one1 solution.
