Argosy, a supplier of broadcast cables and infrastructure products, recently provided a selection of IP and fibre-based cabling, networking, and rack technology to support dB Broadcast in the IP migration of some of the UK’s leading broadcasters and media services companies. Argosy provided dB Broadcast with over 200km of digital video cabling coaxial cables, including Draka's exclusive-to-Argosy Image 360 and Image 1000 coaxial cables and large volume of Neutrik BNC connectors, suitable for 3GHz 1080p transmission for these projects over an 18-month period . Additional materials included 150km of digital audio cabling made up of various types of single and multiple pairs of cables.
Argosy also provided dB Broadcast with network cables and SMPTE fibre equipment as part of the creation of a flexible, dynamic, 24/7 news platform for a European headquarters. Argosy is keeping pace with the industry’s continued migration to IP and with organisations’ increased investment in SMPTE cabling. Argosy’s unique and long-standing strategic partnerships with suppliers of critical infrastructure solutions, has equipped them with the ability to deliver end-to-end signal distribution solutions from the rack to the network.
“IP infrastructure and SMPTE fibre-based systems are the fastest-growing areas in our project portfolio,” said Chris Smeeton, director, Argosy. “Our increasing experience and knowledge in this capacity enables us to provide truly insightful recommendations that our customers can trust."
