Listeners of the German radio station Deutschlandradio have grown used to experiencing live broadcast events. Many of them do not even realise how fragile the transmission is until the live broadcast is interrupted due to technical problems. To make sure that those problems don’t occur, broadcasters are now using EUROMICRON’s EUROLENS connector system. It replaces the former connector system, which had become too error-prone and, on top of it, was difficult to clean.
To broadcast live from any location, Deutschlandradio is sending out well-equipped broadcast vehicles to places all over Germany. Permanently installed fiber optic cables in these vehicles ensure a smooth real-time data transmission. The unavoidable vibrations and shocks on these cross-country trips represent a special challenge for the OWG technology, however. These conditions call for robust plug-in connectors to make sure that the transmission isn’t suddenly interrupted due to loosened connections.
The ideal solution for Deutschlandradio turned out to be the EUROLENS lens connectors combined with the EUROLENS bulkheads by EUROMICRON. The connection systems could be easily assembled directly in the broadcast vehicle in no time and immediately ensured a smooth transmission of the signals. With many broadcast vehicles nowadays setting up mobile optical fiber connections to the scene of action, the EUROLENS connection systems also provide a future-proof solution: They are perfectly equipped for use in harsh environments such as soggy grounds, rain, or snow.
