Argosy Demonstrates Expanded Infrastructure Product Range at BroadcastAsia 2012
[17 May 2012]
Buckinghamshire, United Kingdom, May 17, 2012 — Argosy, a leading international supplier of HD broadcast cables and studio infrastructure products, will team up with its joint venture partner, Argosy Broadcast Asia Sdn Bhd (ABA) and Indian agent Perlink India to showcase some of the latest additions to its infrastructure product range for the first time in the Asia Pacific region. The Argosy stand at BroadcastAsia 2012 (stand no. 4E2-08 at Suntec Singapore, 19-22 June 2012) will play host to the latest Argosy infrastructure solutions including video patch panels, rack-mounted monitors, a new Argosy Stagebox as well as a range of existing HD infrastructure products.
BroadcastAsia will see the Asia Pacific launch of Argosy’s new addition to its patch panel line up. Manufactured by BES the high performance 24-way panel is designed for uncompromised performance even with 1080p 3Gb/s signals. The 1U MUSA panel is built with high durability gold plated connectors, giving an insertion loss of less than 0.5dB and a true 75Ω nominal impedance. Each panel is tested with a 1080p signal over 50m of cable before delivery to guarantee performance to SMPTE 424M. Complementary U links and patchcords, in a range of colours for coding, are also available from Argosy.
"As broadcasters across South East Asia continue to upgrade to HD, and indeed to 3DTV technology, there is now more demand for high-quality, correctly specified broadcast infrastructure materials — and Argosy Broadcast Asia is appropriately positioned with its locally supplied stock and broadcast knowledge to provide that service," said Steve Wingrove of Argosy Broadcast Asia. "We are returning to BroadcastAsia as we believe it continues to provide the ideal platform for us to not only showcase our latest equipment to the regional broadcast community but also engage in technology discussion to identify key trends in the region."
ABA will also demonstrate one of its successful products at this year’s show — a simple and useful 1RU front-loading rack mount light units which uses cool white LED technology to provide clear and powerful illumination to a loaded rack. Units are switched with a fixed canopy that efficiently directs light to the floor and into the rack face whilst remaining flush with the rack’s profile. This lighting solution offers much lower power consumption, far less heat generation and a longer lasting 'bulb' life — making it more energy efficient and environmentally friendly with lower overall operating costs for broadcasters. It is ideal for use in ‘lights out facilities’ where service engineers need to operate on individual racks without lighting up the entire facility.
ABA continues to stock a wide variety of HD and fibre optic products from its new facility in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia including, a broad range HD video 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. This local facility enables Argosy to provide a quick route to market as the company continues to work to swiftly and effectively meet the infrastructure needs of broadcasters and systems integrators across the South East Asia region.
