ADC Simplifies Network Migration in the Broadcast Industry

By Anuradha Shukla, TMCnet Contributor

ADChas announced it will demonstrate how to simplify network migration from copper to fiber in the broadcast industry. The company will also display its new fiber solutions for the entertainment and broadcast industry at the National Association of Broadcasters conference and exhibition 2010.

Intended to simplify network migration from copper to fiber in the broadcast industry, ADC's (News - Alert) fiber product portfolio routes audio and video signals and RF throughout their facilities.

TV broadcasters have been using copper coaxial cable for many years. Now, the need for more bandwidth has gone up together with the increasing demand for high definition signals and for next generation TV signal routing, so broadcasters are switching from copper coaxial cable to fiber optic cable feed.

The entertainment and broadcast industry is transitioning to HD digital media, according to Dean Rosenthal, ADC's market manager for Broadcast and Enterprise Solutions who noted that their company is providing fiber connectivity solutions and global enterprise that allow good performance for real world situations and applications in the fast changing environments of today.

ADC's audio, video and data patching products offer very reliable solutions for big networks, sports venues and mobile production companies all throughout the world.

At the show, ADC will show these broadcast fiber and copper solutions:

ADC's TrueNet Fiber Panels "TFP"  - these combine vertical cable guides and angle-left/angle-right adapters for bend radius protection, easy connector access and intuitive routing. The splice, storage panels and termination include removable covers and sliding tray for effective deployment and troubleshooting.

ADC's Next-Generation Optical Distribution Frame
"NGF" - this is a high density frame, strong solution that can be used as a fiber cross-connect for a studio. This product, significant for the move to 3G, was created with the focus on better cable management and easy usage.

ProPatch Miniature "PPM (News - Alert)" Series Super High-Density Coax "SHDC" HD Patching System - this system was created for HD, AES audio, SDI, 5.1 and 7.1 audio applications. It is the lightest true HD patch panel available.
