In collaboration with its joint venture partner, Argosy Broadcast Asia Sdn Bhd (ABA), Argosy, a leading international supplier of HD broadcast cables and studio infrastructure products, will demonstrate a range of fibre management solutions at Broadcast Asia 2014 (stand 5E2-01 British Pavilion, at the Marina Bay Sands, Singapore, 17-20 June 2014).

Leading the Broadcast Asia 2014 display is the Neutrik opticalCON advanced tactical fibre assemblies, including the opticalCON Duo, opticalCON Quad and the debut of the latest addition to the range, the opticalCON MTP® connection systems. The MTP offers a 12-channel fibre optic connection system for point-to-point multi-channel routing with a push/pull connector that helps to reduce rigging and de-rigging times in the field. Its innovative spherical shutter is easy to clean and guarantees low maintenance. As well as being easily deployable, the MTP connection system offers a reliable, end-to-end solution with rugged outer-jackets for harsh environments making it an ideal solution for outside broadcast applications.

“We have moved on from fibre being a new and slightly daunting concept to the point where it now makes up a fair proportion of all new infrastructure projects. Consequently, most of us are now familiar with fibre and we are proud to be able to provide a growing range of solutions alongside an in-house cable termination service in support of this trend,” said Steve Wingrove of Argosy Broadcast Asia. “At Broadcast Asia we are looking forward to demonstrating our wide range of HD infrastructure solutions that meet the needs of broadcasters and systems integrators, however large or small the project.”

Also forming part of the demonstrations at Broadcast Asia is the IEC-Lock mains cable, which incorporates a locking mechanism to fasten it to the earth pin.  The connector features a red button, which must be depressed to unlock the lead.  This added feature helps secure critical equipment from mains failure and is an ideal solution for equipment on sliding rack trays or for those placed in OB vehicles where high levels of vibration may be encountered. The IEC-lock mains cables are offered in 1m, 2m, 3m, 4m and 5m lengths. Available in orange and blue, the PVC mains cable has a 7mm outside diameter and rated at 10 amps with a pre-terminated standard Male IEC connector one end and a lockable Female IEC connector on the other.

With its considerable stock availability and warehouse space in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Argosy Broadcast Asia Sdn Bhd (ABA) is able to meet the growing regional demand for its infrastructure products from broadcasters and systems integrators across Southeast Asia.
