Canford is renowned for, as product development manager John Driver told the IBC Daily, “providing the glue – the interconnectors which makes the equipment work”.

Manufactured in the company’s base in north-east England, the company makes standard or custom cables with short lead times, and is showing a varied sample of its products on its stand. “We cover Europe, Middle East and Africa, and have an office in France; and our website is in English, French and German,” said Driver. But, he said, the company has already taken steps to mitigate the potential impact of Brexit.

In response to the increasing demand for 4K infrastructure products, Canford has developed a range of video patch panels which are intended for 12G 4K ultra-high definition (2160p60), 3G and 1.5G high definition, standard definition and analogue video applications. Offered in three forms, performance exceeds the requirements of ST 2082-1.

These video jackfields incorporate the new microMUSA panel connector, manufactured for Canford by Coax Connectors, which not only perform beyond the required 4K standard but also offer the highest possible density with a maximum of two rows of 48 connectors in a 1U panel.

Canford is exhibiting at IBC2019 on Stand 11.D01.
