Argosy Partners With TTL Video

News Image
Argosy has teamed with broadcast engineering and sports stadia facility specialists, TTL Video, to bring the infrastructure of newly promoted clubs into the UK's top football division this coming season, in line with the very latest broadcast requirements.

TTL Video managed the projects from end to end, supported by the provision of 30+ kilometres of fire retardant triax cabling, SMPTE hybrid cabling and 8-way COAX cabling from Argosy. The cable profiles are driven by the production requirements of the international broadcasters who cover the matches and by the leading UK outside broadcasting units that are stationed at the different stadia on match days.

"We were blown away, not only by the technical competency of the Argosy team who went the extra mile for us, but by their ability to anticipate our timescales and hold cable stock, consequently helping our warehouse management," said Stefan Bewsey, chief engineer at TTL Video.

"Depending on the match, there can be up to 15 different broadcasters vying for infrastructure at the same time, so it must not only provide the highest of performance, but also the strongest protection against the extremely harsh environment it faces all season. Our long-term partner Argosy was the perfect choice for these projects."

Just before the summer, Argosy delivered a range of cables to TTL Video for installation into the three stadia, including 10km of Draka higher-rate CPR grade HD triaxial video cable. TTL Video is the first company in the UK to use this extremely exciting innovation by Draka, as it is the first triaxial cable on the market to meet the recommended UK fire protection norms.

Argosy also delivered 14km of SMPTE copper and fibre hybrid camera cable, to support HD and 4K signals; 8km of triax copper camera cable – extremely well adapted to protecting broadcast signals in the harshest of environments; and 9km of Belden 8-way star quad digital audio multicore cable, that run in a star formation to reduce the likelihood of noise affecting signals, installed in the gantries and TV studios around the pitch.

"We have been working with Argosy since 2005 and together, we have experienced three major shifts in broadcast infrastructure needs within sports, including the move to HD, the expansion of stadia from single-broadcaster installations to multiple international broadcasters and the move to 4K," continued Bewsey. "This latest project is a great example of how Argosy's knowledge, high-quality products and short lead times make infrastructure upgrades a smooth and seamless process."

Argosy can be found at stand 10.C51 at IBC2019.
