201604-NABSHOW 2016 Review

Las Vegas – NABShow is the world’s largest yearly electronic media show, with 2016’s event seeing over 103,000 attendees coming to see over 1,800 the latest content creation, management and delivery technologies.


NABShow represents an unparalleled opportunity for industry-to-industry, and industry-to-consumer interaction and networking; and was the perfect venue for Bokkeh to announce it’s first line of optics.

Over the course of the four day event, we used the NABShow platform to demonstrate both our design and production capabilities in the form of our very first Bokkelux 75mm T2 prototype lens. Although there are still some external refinements to be made to the lens’ finish, the optics spoke for themselves, leaving a deep impression on the new friends and contacts we made in the film industry.

During the exhibition we were fortunate enough to meet the team at Red and had the opportunity to test the Bokkelux 75mm T2 on the latest RED 8k Weapon test equipment. In addition, when tested on the RED Vista Vision, the Bokkelux 75mm T2 exceeded 35mm full frame; and showed outstanding performance with zero fall-off. It was our vision to exceed the technical requirements we had set as our initial design targets; and the results from the tests with RED demonstrate that commitment to delivering profound performance was a effort well spent.

With the finalization of the Bokkelux 75mm T2, we are now ready to move forward with completing the remaining lenses in our starting line-up. With NAB Show 2016 behind us and many further opportunities ahead, we are confident that our commitments to quality and design will be reflected in our upcoming wide-angle and standard focal length releases.
