The Euro 2016 Football Championships in France demanded a huge array of broadcast devices and SmartCart Technology Ltd was asked to supply one of their cutting edge units by US Sports broadcaster ESPN. To allow the broadcast studios to link to the unit, the company needed two 110 metre Pliosil fibre optic looms, each one with 2 x Opticalcon single mode quads and a 32 amp mains lead.
SmartCart Technology Ltds Managing Director Gil Cowie said: “When we were asked to supply the SmartCart for the Euros, we needed the fibre looms at very short notice and VDC Trading was the only company which could help us. All the other broadcast suppliers quoted us three weeks delivery which would have meant missing the deadline. Adam Jafrabadi and team came up with the goods well inside the time, I have to say the ability to turn the job round under such pressure is a sign of their credibility and dedication to the needs of their customers. They saved the day for us.
VDC Technical Manager Adam Jafrabadi added: “Gil called me a week before he was due out to France for the Euro’s looking for a OpticalCon power split system. Neutrik were quoting 3 weeks so we had no choice but to go down the pliosil loom route, not ideal but would get them out of trouble. I hate pliosilling at the best of times but we got there in the end.”
