Thinking beyond fixed installations12 September 2016
Aiming to support broadcast engineers dealing with pressing industry trends such as IP convergence, Argosy is showcasing a range of racks, mains distribution units, patch panels, KVM solutions, fibre and Ensemble Design video products.
The company said it is focusing on ‘intelligent’ technology, in particular, intelligent mains distribution units (MDUs) and KVM switches which enable engineers to centrally monitor and control equipment. This, claimed the company, would make facilities more flexible and responsive, easier to maintain and, above all, more energy efficient.
Argosy’s recent integration into the broadcast and communications division of IEWC has seen the company step beyond the provision of fixed installation video distribution products. Argosy is now active, not only across the broadcast market, but also within adjacent vertical markets such as pro AV.
Chris Smeeton, business unit director at Argosy, said: “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.”
“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.”
