Argosy Supports UK Football Clubs With Infrastructure Upgrades 

Argosy has teamed with TTL Video, a specialist in sports facilities, to provide new cabling at several UK football stadiums.

TTL Video managed the projects, supported by Argosy's provision of 30-plus kilometers of fire retardant triax cabling, SMPTE hybrid cabling and eight-way COAX cabling. The cable profiles were driven by the production requirements of the international broadcasters who cover the matches and by the leading UK outside broadcasting units that are stationed at the stadiums on match days.

Depending on the match, there can be up to 15 different broadcasters vying for infrastructure at the same time. Argosy delivered 10km of Draka higher-rate CPR grade HD triaxial video cable, the first triaxial cable on the market to meet the recommended UK fire protection norms.

Argosy also delivered 14km of SMPTE copper and fiber hybrid camera cable, to support HD and 4K signals; 8km of triax copper camera cable (well adapted to protecting broadcast signals in the harshest of environments) and 9km of Belden eight-way star quad digital audio multicore cable. The Belden cable runs in a star formation to reduce the likelihood of noise affecting signals, installed in the gantries and TV studios around the pitch.
