Bryant is the UK's leading manufacturer of optical fibre interconnects for audio and High Definition video broadcast and high-end A/V applications.
Building on a solid history of manufacturing both multi conductor and triax type camera cables, Bryant has invested heavily in the equipment and expertise necessary to assist engineers in using fibre to transport HD and 3Gb/s over fibre optic media.
Fibre optic cable is available in singles or multicores as loose-tube or tight buffered and with constructions similar to most other cable types, e.g. rugged tactical cables for newsgathering, arena music gigs, outside broadcast, LSOH for fixed installations and even heavy duty armouring for underground burial.
With an increasing range of optical cable assemblies, break-out cables, hybrid fibre break-out/patching panels, wall boxes, cable pullers and components, special fibre handling cable reels, etc. Bryant aim to provide the complete optical interconnect solution.
As an example, Bryant Unlimited's commercial grade composite SMPTE 311M, single-mode fibre optic and copper composite camera cables can multiplex audio and video signals and power and are manufactured using Furukawa TV-OM-AMS SMPTE specification cable, terminated with Lemo SMPTE 304M connectors. Lemo's range of high performance fibre optics camera connectors have been developed to meet the needs of the new generation of digital TV cameras forming the basis of the SMPTE, ARIB and EBU standards. The LEMO 3K.93C connector has been fully tested is TUV approved and is used in international events transmissions and in applications such as the Sony BVP9500 super slow motion camera to CCU.
The Bryant Unlimited / Furakawa SMPTE terminated camera cable's performance is proven superior to most other supplier's standard SMPTE offerings; exceeding the physical, electrical and very tight, bend insensitive radii optical requirements of the specification; enabling them to withstand the rigours of cable installation and remote field applications, whilst still providing a considerable cost saving over their ARIB cables.
The face of each F2 fibre contact in the connector goes through a precise, multi-stage, laboratory standard polishing regime in the Bryant factory, before the final adhesive and oven curing process. This process achieves excellent optical clarity and alignment, thereby reducing return loss and minimizing insertion loss.
Every Bryant UK built cable comes complete with rubber boots, gaiters, dust caps and clear heat shrink for identification and can be supplied reeled on the Bryant SCD-FO skeleton drum if required. As a LEMO UK, Fischer and Neutrik Opticalcon approved optical termination house, Bryant can not only manufacture but also rebuild most makes of SMPTE camera cables in their Croydon, UK premises; thus avoiding the costs of sending imported cables back to the USA or Asia for repair.
At the other end of the scale is the Tyco "Lightcrimp" connector. These are designed for field installation of either single or multimode fibres and the installer merely strips and cleaves the individual fibre and inserts/crimps it into the rear of a pre-polished stub containing index-matching gel. Many people have reservations about fitting ST, SC or LC connectors, even on simple simplex/duplex patch leads, so Bryant is more than ready to step in and help.
These general purpose industry standard ST, SC and LC formats are available in multiple configurations, including the Neutrik OpticalCon LC duplex feedthrough format behind shutters to maintain protection from dust, etc. as well as tactical snakes using Stratos or Delphi type TAC-4 connectors with 4 way ruggedised fibres for use in hostile environments. In addition to broadcast video, Bryant can supply single and multiway OM3 internal/external 62.5/125 and 50/125 micron tight buffered cables suitable for premises and server network cabling.
A full range of insert/removal tools, cleaning kits and materials, microscope kits and cable testers are available to keep your fibre installation in tip-top condition.
The latest addition to Bryant's Fibre Optic armoury is their unique new partnership with ZeroPsi to provide onsite support for fibre optic infrastructure.
The Mobile Fibre Laboratory is a purpose built utility vehicle that provides a controlled environment together with state of the art production, test and repair equipment to enable fibre optic termination, installation and repair on-site or in the field. Supported Broadcast connectors include Lemo SMPTE 311M HDTV, Neutrik opticalCON Duo/Quad and some expanded beam.
The mobile fibre laboratory can operate independently using its own on board power unit allowing its use in remote locations. Portable termination facilities and fusion splicing are also available to provide support for fixed infrastructure installation and repairs.
