It's hard to tell exactly what kind of broadcast camera it is, but a broken lens can be a big deal in such a high-priced piece of equipment. The lenses for those cameras often work differently than DSLR lenses in that there's electronics in them to zoom quickly and accurately. There's usually a protective filter at the front of the housing, though, so it's hard to tell exactly how much damage was done. Still, getting fixes made on a $1,000 DSLR lens is pricy enough. Working on gear like this is probably brutal on the budget.
