OCC Introduces New Family of Cabling and Broadcast Connectivity Solutions
The proliferation of 4K ultra high-definition broadcasting and the promise of 8K resolution coming soon are increasing demand for broadcasters to move to high-bandwidth fiber optic cabling solutions. To meet those demands, Optical Cable Corporation (OCC) is introducing a new line of SMPTE cables and enclosures that are designed to address a wide variety of user needs.
Whether in permanent installations or challenging deployable applications, the effective selection and installation of broadcast cables and connections can involve an assortment of requirements.
“Some applications require cable capable of exceptional flexibility, hybrid fiber-and-copper configuration, or have varying requirements for flame retardancy,” explains Scott Fitzgerald, Optical Cable Corporation (OCC)’s senior engineer. “This family of SMPTE cable offerings is engineered to handle virtually any application requirement.”
Among these high-bandwidth, low-signal-loss cables designs are flexible cables that enable quick and frequent camera movement, riser/plenum versions for permanent installations and 3-in-1 SMPTE compatible cables to transport three cameras’ signals in one location with only a single cable run.
OCC Modular Enclosure
The new OCC line also includes a selection of modular enclosures specifically designed for SMPTE 304 or other commonly used broadcast connections. These advanced designs include full fiber management and integrated splicing capabilities.
Models support up to eight ports on the front and back, as well as the ability to accommodate the three-channel stadium cable. All are designed to be mounted in standard 19-inch racks without requiring extra space above or below.
Additionally, mobile production trucks, with repeating deploy-and-retrieve operations for sporting events, require a ruggedized tactical cable that will last. OCC recently introduced the Migration Control Technology to address the migration challenge experienced in the broadcast industry, resulting is extended life of the assemblies and reducing repair costs.
