Argosy is demonstrating its expanding range of infrastructure solutions at IBC2018.
Argosy completed an MBO from its former parent company in July 2018, and is now owned by directors Chris Smeeton and Josh Simons.
Argosy supplies the advanced control solutions from Austrian manufacturer, kvm-tec, including its ability to handle 4K video. KVM – keyboard, video and mouse – solutions allow installers to put workstations where they are needed while keeping the computers themselves in a machine room. By connecting multiple KVM systems over a standard IP network users can quickly switch between services.
Traditionally used in system control rooms to minimise desk clutter, KVM is now becoming a popular solution in post production facilities. It eliminates downtime caused by the need to move content from machine to machine by simply connecting the edit suite to the content. The kvm-tec solution has the ability to monitor up to 4K video with minimal latency.
Also on display at IBC will be the BarnMini range of fibre converters. Described as “the Swiss army knife” of converters, the range – implemented as SFPs (small form-factor pluggable devices) – can be set up to achieve everything from a simple conversion to a complex solution.
As well as Barnfind and kvm-tec, Argosy will be showing a sample of its range of infrastructure products at IBC2018, from cables and connectors to power management and system control.
