Argosy, an international supplier of infrastructure products, has launched a range of ‘Deployable Solutions’ designed to ease pressure, increase signal integrity and save time for outside broadcasters covering live events.
“Outside broadcast events are notoriously challenging when it comes to deploying infrastructure,” said Chris Smeeton, Director at Argosy. “By establishing this ‘range’, we are highlighting the hard-wearing solutions that have been developed to speed up the installation process, improve efficiency and provide next-level resilience – making it simpler and easier for our customers to broadcast from harsh production environments such as sports venues, touring events and festivals.”
The Deployable Solutions range includes a host of special over-jacketed cables that provide ruggedised protection to minimise damage from impact, abrasion and longitudinal tension from repeated deployment. These include Argosy’s SMPTE HYPERflex camera cable assemblies and its new TACflex-pro tactical fibre optic cable assemblies that ensure signal integrity over long distances, thus supporting remoting cameras and sound locations.
Another key component is the Neutrik opticalCON ADVANCED and LITE cable connectors. These military approved connectors are available in DUO or QUAD versions. Lightweight and mobile for 2 and 4 fibre cables, they provide cable retention due to aramid yarn and a black PUR outer jacket. Argosy has also developed its own brand of robust BNC connectors with tooling to fit each cable option for 1080i, 1080p or Ultra HD (UHD) requirements.
Professional grade XLR microphone cables are also part of Argosy’s Deployable Solutions range with the option to supply 3 Pole XLR M-F Lead Black microphone cable on GT310RM cable drums in lengths of 50, 75 and 100 metres. Weather resistant and well-equipped for harsh environments, these robust cable drums make the storage, use and transportation of microphone cable effortless.
