Argosy To Showcase Latest Infrastructure Portfolio At Broadcast Video Expo 2009

Argosy Cable, a leading UK-based international supplier of HD broadcast cables and studio infrastructure products, will showcase its latest range of products at Broadcast Video Expo in London, from February 17-19.
Showcasing on the Argosy Stand (138) will be:
  • The new LCD HD Video Monitor range which provides high quality video monitoring in a choice of Composite, SDI & HD formats. These units include tally lights and an easy to use scroll menu accessible from the front panel that enables the users to select aspect ratio, contrast, colour & sharpness. The monitors are available in a number of screen formats and feature a rack mount chassis that is able to be tilted to improve the viewing angle.
  • The Argosy Power Manager Mains Distribution Unit (MDU) will be shown for the first time in the UK since its launch at IBC. The latest addition to a family of MDUs distributed by Argosy, the intelligent Power Manager range offers a unified global power management solution. These MDUs are designed to provide the full flexibility required by technical operations for a range of applications from television and radio broadcasting to recording studios, IT and telecommunications facilities. They offer full SNMP alarm monitoring, the ability to administers all the control of input and output locations, 16 General Purpose Interfaces (GPIs) inputs for the remote management of non-networked rack hardware.

  • The Sonarae audio monitoring system has been specifically designed to meet the need of Non Linear Editing (NLE) operators who critically monitor the audio associated with a video edit session as a part of the NLE process in 5.1, 6.1 & 7.1 surround sound formats.
  • The 14-way MDU makes full use of the 20Amp capability of the Powercon inlet by configuring the outputs in two banks of seven. The two neon-illuminated front panel switches are operated within their 16 amp rating as each is restricted to 10Amps per bank. This technique allows the 14-way series to deliver 20% more output than conventional single switched units. This unit complements the existing popular Argosy 12-port range which includes sequential and Powercon units.
  • The 32-way High Density HD Video Patch Panels provides useful performance in excess of 3GHz making them particularly suited to existing single wire standards of SMPTE 292M, the dual link SMPTE 372M and the digital cinema standard of SMPTE 424M. While the high density offers 32 u-links pairs making them ideal for the most demanding video patching application the 1-RU units also maximise space utilisation. This unit will be displayed alongside a family of patch panels in the Argosy range.
  • The 32-way Audio Jack Field is suitable for wiring up audio routers. With 32 inputs and outputs, the jacks allow for high density patching with stand B Gauge plugs.

  • The Fujitsu SERVIS 17-inch Lift-Up Drawer is also having its debut at BVE. The only lift up drawer on the market today, the SERVIS provides a KVM switch and console in a 1RU space and supports multi-platforms such as PS/2, USB, Sun USB. It has an optional 4, 8 or 16-port KVM to the rear part of FD-5200MT. It is easily installed in the rack using the unique guide rails.

  • Supporting the transition to HD is the ISIS HD-212 2x2 SD/HD/ASI Critical Path Changeover Switcher which auto-detects the SD, HD or ASI signal presence on both its 'A' and 'B' inputs and transfers to the offline input upon failure of the primary feed. Ideal for use in network, transmitter inputs, or satellite and cable head end operations. It is fully compliant with all SMPTE and ITU serial digital video signals up to and including 1.4835Gbps. The 1RU rack enclosure can house up to two processor boards and two power supplies and optional Ethernet core processor.

  • Argosy will also display its most popular range of IMAGE HD video cables. Surpassing the requirements of SMPTE 424M (1080p/60), the IMAGE range is widely used in worldwide HD installations and has one of the most enviable track records in the industry. IMAGE cables are designed to maximise operational bandwidth while offering the lowest possible return and attentuation loss. With its highly-regarded international reputation among engineers and systems designers alike, IMAGE combines superb quality, reliability and durability with consistent high performance that is perfect for all types of installations however large or small.
