Argosy, a leading international supplier of HD broadcast cables and studio infrastructure products, will demonstrate the latest in its range of fibre management solutions and data cables at IBC2014 (stand 10.C51 at the RAI exhibition centre, 12-16 September 2014).

Leading the display at IBC2014 will be 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.

To support a growing trend in fibre requirements, Argosy recently installed a state of the art termination and test facility on site at its headquarters in the UK.  This allows the company to offer its customer a service to assemble and repair fibre cables, to any specification for use within the broadcast domain.

“We are seeing a growing trend in the use of fibre and it now makes up a large proportion of all new infrastructure projects,” said Chris Smeeton, director at Argosy. “We are proud to be able to provide our customers with a growing range of proven fibre solutions alongside an in-house fibre cable termination service to support this requirement as demands grow.”

The proliferation of active broadcast component with IP addressable ports is increasing the monitoring and control capabilities for systems engineers. To address this growth in next generation data networks, Argosy will be showcasing its range of CAT5E, CAT6 and CAT6A cables designed to support all applications including 10 Gigabit Ethernet.

Visitors to the Argosy stand will also see other fibre products in the range alongside a broad range of its 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.
