First orders already streaming in from leading broadcasters and service providers
Argosy, a leading international supplier of HD broadcast cables and studio infrastructure products, will introduce its new range of Argosy equipment racks at IBC2014 (stand 10.C51 at the RAI exhibition centre, 12-16 September 2014), which are designed to simplify installations and maintenance while minimising rollout costs.
The new racks are already being used in real-world situations by broadcasters and services providers including Gearhouse Broadcast, who have the racks installed in broadcast facilities around the world covering live sporting events, including those at this summer’s international football championships in Brazil.
“As a global market leader in television broadcast services we are always on the look out for new equipment that is both reliable and that will help save on installation time — and the new Argosy racks meet these criteria perfectly,” said Kevin Moorhouse, Chief Operating Officer and Managing Director of Gearhouse Broadcast UK. “We have had a longstanding relationship with Argosy who offer proven, high-quality products quickly and efficiently, as we need them.”
The new Argosy-designed equipment rack incorporates a plethora of features to support quick and easy installation. Its new open design maximises access to cables making it easy to install. It also provides the flexibility to allow customers to incorporate additional sets of cable trays where intensive cabling is required, and to change the positioning of mounting profiles to allow quick and easy relocation to suit the customers’ individual requirements.
The U designation helps partial loading of equipment without the need for measurement and the internal capacity also benefits from improved air circulation and heat dispersion, ideal for compact environments like an outside broadcast vehicle.
Visitors to IBC2014 will also see Argosy demonstrate a variety of its HD and fibre optic products including, fibre assemblies, a broad range HD video and audio cables, connectors, high density HD video patch panels, video and audio jackfields, cable markers, cable boots, tools, MDUs, routers, KVM switches, racks, cable drums and network and data products as well as a variety of video accessories.
