New products from Canford at IBC 2012

Canford will be launching its recently acquired ES brand of 19-inch rack enclosures and a broad range of rack accessories, as well as showcasing the latest additions to its 3G HDTV cables and interconnects at IBC 2012, which takes place at the Amsterdam RAI from September 6th-11th.

Also featured will be its own new fibre patching and connection products, and new additions to its fibre routing and interconnection range from AFP (Advanced Fiber Products). The show will also see a first for the broadcast industry; a new type of catalogue browsing, which Canford will launch at the show.

Canford is to launch a new range of preconfigured racks and enclosures under their ES brand at the show. The new range offers enclosures of up to 47U height and up to 1000mm depth, making the racks capable of accommodating the most bulky of servers and broadcast equipment. The preconfigured racks will feature additional, adjustable, intermediate rack strips located between the front and rear rack strips, enabling the location of support angles or the mounting of additional equipment to the centre and rear that does not require immediate accessibility. An array of supporting accessories will also be available, including a choice of over 300 powering units, trays, shelves, fans, plinths, doors and panels.

A new supply partnership has been formed between Canford and the industry leading fibre optic manufacturer AFP. AFP is an Anglo-American manufacturer of active and passive fibre optic products, with a range that includes extenders, 3G/HD-SDI, DVI and HDMI video converters and distribution amplifiers and ultra rugged fibre couplers for harsh conditions.

Canford’s newly released extended performance 3Gb/s HD video cables, permitting longer transmission distances, will also be seen at IBC for the first time. The new SDV-X (standard) and SDV-L-X (low loss) cables both deliver gains over standard SDV cable types whilst conforming to, and exceeding, the requirements of SMPTE 292M and SMPTE 424M. The cables are available in Canford’s trademarked LFH (Low fire hazard) versions to help meet current building regulations.
