MFC 65 - Remote Projector for Medium Format Lenses
The DENZ MFC 65 projector is a high-end product for all cine and photo lenses having image circles of up to Ø60mm. It is made for industrial and rental applications and is ready for use 24/7 immediately after start-up
Lens Mount System The MFC 65 offers the Denz Basic Mount having an extremely short flange focal depth of 10mm, which allows adaptation of all common mounts in cinema and photo. The current offering of lens mount adapters is among the most diverse in the industry and includes standard PL, Arri LPL, Arri XPL-60, Sony-E, Canon EF and Panavision. A special Arri LPL adapter allows for rotation of the lens for especially critical aberration analysis, and datamount versions are also in development.
Simulation of glass filters behind the lens as is common with digital cameras is accomplished via use of the modular Denz optical flats. The MFC 65 chart stage has a generous travel range and can thus compensate for the increase in physical flange depth internally. The short flange focal depth combined with its 87mm diameter and a positive lock make the Denz Basic Mount also especially well-suited for coming lens mounts in the worlds of medium and large format.
Future-proof The intermediate mount and test chart have been designed to be interchangeable and adaptable to future developments in medium format cine technology. The proprietary DENZ Anti-Sag support system maintains parallelism even when the heaviest lenses are mounted.
Test Chart / Reticle The DENZ Chart 65 is swappable by the user and comes in a high-precision stainless steel mount. It is securely fastened to the projector chart stage with screws in order to avoid parallelism deviation and minimize sensitivity to contamination.
The chart is driven by an integrated motor and can be positioned with accuracy of 2µm. The position is read directly off the linear guide by an optical sensor, yielding substantially more accurate results than a traditional mechanical linkage.
Each MFC 65 is inspected with an advanced 3-D measuring machine to ensure that the chart stage is parallel to the basic mount.
The DENZ Chart 65 features all modern sensor formats and allows the inspection of local resolution of spherical and anamorphic lenses.
Frame markings: Alexa 65, Medium Format, PV VistaVision/DXL, Leica S, Full Frame 35, Red Helium, Arri Open Gate, Super-35, APS-C, MFT and 1”
Line Pair Blocks: 12-200 lp/mm
Full image circles for Medium Format and Full Frame 35, partial image circles for diverse other Formats
Light Source A high-power COB-LED generates a homogeneous field of up to 20000 lumens at 6500°K. With this output, even the largest image circles can be inspected at all customary viewing distances. The intensity of the light source can be dimmed continuously.
Remote Operation All settings of the MFC 65 projector are completely remote-controllable to allow for true one-man operation. All controls on the MFC 65 integrated touch screen are reproduced on the remote WiFi tablet.
For 100% certainty of lens scale read, the MFC 65 witness-mark camera can be used. The image from the witness-mark camera can be seen on the WiFi tablet in real time.
The MFC 65 system has capability to drive two lens motors, also either via the integrated touch screen or the WiFi tablet.
All these features together mean that one operator can stand directly at the projection surface and inspect the projected image carefully, while controlling all lens settings and having full view of where the lens rings really are.
Setup Aids All instruments needed for setup are integrated into the projector, including a parallel-positioning laser for use with a mirror, an electronic bubble level, and a distance finder.
