The constant changing of broadcast requirements means that today’s sports venue infrastructures must be future-proofed to provide the optimal broadcast experience for fans and for the stadium’s general success.
OCC’s Stadium solution allows broadcasters to connect their Camera Control Unit’s (CCU) to their camera directly without having to pull thousands of feet of cable around the venue, cutting down on installation and labor costs. OCC’s fiber only solution is ideal for venues with limited conduit space, as the cables are smaller and lighter than the SMPTE 311 hybrid cables. OCC has also found a way to essentially eliminate migration within our deployable cables through Migration Control Technology. Our cables lock the subunits in place preventing cross-over, reducing fatigue, and extending the life of the assembly.
OCC Broadcast Solutions start with tough fiber optic cables. Our stadium and arena cables are optimized to repeatedly endure the abuse associated with the extreme demands in rapid deployment and retrieval applications. Where standard fiber optic cables are likely to fail, OCC’s broadcast cables are particularly well-suited to the harsh environment associated with outside field broadcast applications. Factors that make OCC’s fiber optic broadcast cables ideal for the broadcast industry include:
- OCC special Core-Locked™ jacket is extruded under high pressure directly over the cable’s core, to help keep the cable cross-section circular for better crush and impact protection during installation.
- Helical Stranding is a time tested cable construction design proven to provide flexibility, survival in difficult pulls, and excellent mechanical protection for the optical fibers.
- Water-Blocked fiber optic cables provide the best water protection system available by combining the inherent water tolerant features of tight-buffered and Core-Locked™ tight-bound cable with super absorbent polymer aramid yarn.
- OCC’s Ultra-Fox™ and Ultra-Fox™ Plus cable design features unique fiber construction consisting of a primary coating of UV-cured acrylate material and tight-fitting secondary coating of a hard, elastomeric polymer buffer.
All of these factors make OCC’s cables a practical and reliable means of high-capacity data transmission in challenging environments without the delicacy normally association with traditional fiber optic cables.
