ISE 2017: Argosy to feature Belden REVConnect cable
Argosy, an international supplier of HD broadcast cables and studio infrastructure products, is introducing Belden’s field mountable REVConnect cable termination system to the pro-AV market for the first time during the ISE 2017 show (12.F68), taking place at the RAI in Amsterdam from 7 to 10 February.
“Since the acquisition of Argosy by IEWC last year, our company has broadened its remit from TV studios and outside broadcast (OB), to pro audio recording and commercial pro-AV applications,” said Chris Smeeton, Managing Director, EMEA at Argosy. “Bringing our expertise to the pro-AV market is now a major focus for Argosy. As part of this drive, we recently hired Daniel Hinton a specialist from the pro-AV market.”
Argosy offers a wiring service to support customers in meeting the changing demands on their businesses. As part of that, Belden’s REVConnect is a brand new RJ45 connectivity system that offers single, reliable and easy cable termination covering jack and plug, shielded or unshielded, Category 5e through Category 6A cables.
This versatile connectivity solution is ideal for all sorts of AV applications, including building security systems, LED lighting and sensors, wireless access points, HVAC, digital signage, audio mixing consoles and more.
The use of Belden’s REVConnect eliminates the jack, box and patch cord assembly needed to plug into devices. It also ensures a single termination process for every application and has been shown to work over 50 percent faster than other existing connectors. With REV-Connect, termination reworking is reduced to less than 1 percent of all terminations.
In addition, visitors to the Argosy stand can also view a range of mains distribution units, fibre and Ensemble Design active video gear with a focus on ‘intelligent’ technology, along with Blackmagic, Datavideo, Teradek and Panasonic equipment.
