Argosy, a leading international supplier of broadcast cables and infrastructure products, has announced that it has become one of pro audio and video manufacturer Canare’s distributors in the EMEA region, ensuring that Canare patch panels, cable assemblies and connectors are readily available to their broadcast and AV customers.
This partnership will support Argosy customers in their transition to IP production over SMPTE 2110 and to higher resolutions of 4K and beyond, with the help of Canare’s newly developed 12G products. Canare, a Japanese company, has a strong presence across Asia, and many of Argosy’s customers who undertake installation work within APAC are familiar with Canare’s quality and reputation.
“We see Canare as one of the market leaders in connectivity, with a solid reputation for high quality precision products,” said Chris Smeeton, director, Argosy. “Their ‘best in breed’ solutions and competitive pricing truly complement our product portfolio. The addition of Canare’s extensive range of patch panels, cable assemblies and connectors to our offering, in the year of our 35th anniversary, not only expands our range to another quality brand, but is a strategically important move for us as a company as the industry moves further into the world of 4K and beyond.”
At the Media Production show, Argosy will exhibit SMPTE cables, video patchbays and BNC connectors. Visitors can also see how the Argosy catalogue supports the production environment, with a particular emphasis on harsh environment cable solutions, tactical fibre assemblies, deployable reels, multi-way coaxial cables and SMPTE camera assemblies, all of which are ideally suited to outside broadcast or studio applications.
Also on show, is a range of installation materials usually found in the tailboard of OB trucks or within a flyaway kits, including the Barnfind fibre transport system.
“We are delighted to see our range of products featured within the Argosy offering as a very well-respected supplier to the broadcast and AV markets,” said Tomasz Kolaczyk European sales manager, Canare. “This partnership will help us expand our presence within Europe and bring our top of the range solutions to the customers.”
