LONG CRENDON UK, 06 July 2016 - Argosy (10.C51), a leading international supplier of HD broadcast cables and studio infrastructure products, will be joining this year’s IBC show with a broad portfolio that solidifies its transformation from a ‘passive technology’ infrastructure vendor to a fully-fledged infrastructure solutions provider to both manufacturers and broadcasters.
To support broadcast engineers dealing with pressing industry trends such as IP convergence, Argosy plans to showcase a range of racks, mains distribution units, patch panels, KVM solutions, fibre and Ensemble Design active video gear with a focus on ‘intelligent’ technology.
In particular, ‘intelligent’ mains distribution units (MDUs) and KVM switches which enable engineers to centrally monitor and control equipment and make facilities more flexible and responsive, easier to maintain and above all, more energy efficient.
Argosy’s recent integration into the successful Broadcast & Communications Division of IEWC has seen the company step beyond the provision fixed installation video distribution products. Argosy is now active, not only across the broadcast market, but also within adjacent vertical markets such as proAV.
“In order to offer a more comprehensive range, we’re adding more active devices and pre-tested product bundles by working with partners such as Blackmagic, Datavideo, Teradek and Panasonic,” explained Chris Smeeton, Business Unit Director at Argosy.
“Overall, we are modernising our activities by providing new services and support that SIs and broadcasters need,” concluded Smeeton. “It may not be the most glamorous aspect of broadcast, but it’s mission critical and Argosy’s new found agility will ensure that we remain a key player in that field as the broadcast industry evolves.”
