Canford has supplied a number of the broadcast infrastructure solutions being deployed across Europe to bring coverage of Euro 2020 to TV audiences.
The company has supplied wall box connection plates located around the stadiums, along with all of the termination panels within rack rooms.
“We have produced custom rack enclosures to ensure the safe transportation of state-of-the-art flyaway kits, high-quality termination panels and a significant quantity of deployable SMPTE cables,” said Gavin Drake, Canford production manager.
Canford’s fibre termination work mainly involves assembly of the connectors and cables used for video and audio connections, both installed in infrastructure and deployable for outside broadcast work.
The company says its infrastructure solutions are mostly used with high definition 4K UHD TV cameras employed in premium live broadcasts and in broadcast studios.
Stephen Gallagher, Canford marketing manager added: “Our system is set-up perfectly to manage these complex sports stadia enquiries. Take the experience we’ve gained from many years designing and manufacturing broadcast connectivity solutions to our in-house manufacturing capabilities and on-going significant investments in both raw materials and manufacturing equipment such as our machining centres, laser engraving and SMPTE fibre termination equipment, and you begin to see why customers turn to Canford for these mission critical projects.”
