Argosy, a leading international supplier of broadcast and AV cables and infrastructure products, is introducing a range of solutions as a result of a number of newly formed partnerships. The additions are designed to help Argosy customers to simplify installation, improve efficiency and strengthen signal integrity across their facilities.
With KVM solutions from Guntermann & Drunck (G&D), Argosy customers can make the most of control room installation with full access to remotely stored computers from any location, including a studio, home or an OB vehicle in real-time. Whether operating several hundred computers from one workstation or extending access to computers by up to 10,000 metres, G&D KVM solutions increase user-friendliness and ergonomics at any workplace and support resolutions of up to 4K at 60Hz.
Argosy will also showcase a new range of pass-through style connectors and cable termination tooling from Simply45, covering CAT 6, CAT 6A, CAT7. Designed to make any wiring task simpler, the Simply45 system maintains wire pair twist synchronisation at termination for improved cable performance and uses colour coding for easy plug identification.
Ideal for outside broadcast and studio installation, Argosy’s new Hyperflex is a new design of SMPTE camera cable, built to withstand heavy treatment. Unlike standard SMPTE cables, fibres and copper are enclosed in customised polyurethane rubberised compound outer jackets for greater resilience.
“We are incredibly proud of the new partnerships we have formed over the course of the last few months and the high-quality, robust solutions that we have added to our portfolio as a result,” said Chris Smeeton, Director at Argosy.
“These valuable new additions prove our ongoing dedication to improving the installation process and the overall efficiency of operations for our customers, especially those transitioning to IP workflows and 4K.”
These innovative solutions were to have been unveiled at IBC 2021, but, following the cancellation of the in-person trade show in Amsterdam, will now be introduced to the industry digitally.
