Silver Fox®, a leading UK manufacturer of labelling solutions, has been supplying laser engraved labels to the broadcast systems engineers, TTL Video. Principally, these labels help TTL Video - which offers cable installation, testing, repair and maintenance services for broadcast and fibre optic cable whose equipment records Premier League football games, for broadcast.
TTL Video’s Stefan Bewsey explained: “Most of our panels are custom-made and it’s important for us to get these made quickly, so that we can do our job. Since the installations to which these panels refer change from day to day, depending on the needs of the broadcasters for which we work, we need suppliers that are flexible and highly adaptable in order to meet our requirements.
“We have up to 50 camera positions around each ground,” he added. “These include audio, fibre, data and triaxial cameras so there are about six or seven cut outs that Silver Fox® has to make for us for each job we do.
“Silver Fox® is able to change its label designs and wording quickly and that makes things a lot easier for us, helping us to do the job we need to do: to bring each game to the viewers,” said Stefan.
Based in Redhill, Surrey, and a member of the British Safety Council, TTL Video supplies broadcast engineering expertise and facilities to the international television, sports and entertainment industries. Carrying out major installation and consultancy projects as well as de-rig and truck-based outside broadcast production, its primary areas of operation are systems integration; outside broadcasts; installation of venue and stadium broadcast facilities; consultancy and expertise for engineering projects, as well as cable and fibre optic termination and repair.
According to Nick Michaelson, CEO of Silver Fox®: “Being one of the UK’s foremost suppliers of turnkey communications and broadcasting systems for venues and sports stadia, TTL Video installs and terminates a wide range of copper and fibre optic cable types, including Cat5E/6/6A and single and multi-mode fibre.
“At Silver Fox®, we supply a complete range of standard and customised label solutions which are suitable for TTL Video’s any and every labelling need. When it comes to customised engraved labels, we produce laser labels, stainless steel labels, Traffolyte labels and metal engraved tags.
“We’re delighted that our labels are proving a hit with TTL Video,” he added. “In particular, engineers want the reassurance, reliability and flexibility that comes from working with a company that manufactures in the UK. In addition Silver Fox® are customer focused, offer next-day delivery, have a team that truly understand the products and most importantly we are a true UK Brand with products that are UK made.
