On November 3, 2018 Sigma Corporation of America celebrated the opening our Burbank Facility. A West Coast presence has been a long-time goal. Realizing this goal has been made possible by the overwhelmingly positive reception and momentum of our Cine line.
This new location gives Sigma the opportunity to not only showcase products but also to interact and contribute to the Motion Picture Industry in Los Angeles. Boasting nearly 11,000 sq feet, the venue includes a product showroom—the first of its kind in the US— administrative and meeting spaces, private theater with 4K projection, full cine service department, and warehouse facilities.
November’s Grand Opening showcased for attendees a sampling of what to expect from Sigma in the near future. Sigma Cine Pro, Timur Civan, led guests through a cinema lighting demonstration and engaged thoughtful discussion of technique and art.
Yasuhiro Ohsone, Manager, Product Planning Division, Sigma Japan, and Mark Amir-Hamzeh, President of Sigma Corporation of America, joined the Burbank Service department to discuss our award-winning optical design and the characteristics of the Cine Lenses which make the product unique.
Guests were treated to Japanese inspired food and entertainment, and were the first to screen Sigma America’s 2018 reel, featuring a wide variety of content from filmmakers who shot exclusively with Sigma Cine lenses.
Looking to 2019; Sigma aims to host several monthly educational and industry events, provide factory level service, and offer select facility resources to industry partners.
