New Century Productions (NCP), a full-service remote video production company based in Allentown, PA is employing three Canare Hybrid Fiber Optic Camera Cable Checkers to test SMPTE cables in the field and at their shop.

According to David W. Chase, Field Shop/Maintenance Supervisor for NCP, the HFO Cable Checker is the test tool they have needed since the introduction of SMPTE fiber. Not having the time to use complicated cable testers and frustrated by unnecessary repairs, Chase went to Joseph Electronics in Niles, Illinois for help. Joseph Electronics, on whom NCP relies as a ?go-to supplier with an array of solutions, recommended the award-winning Canare FCT-FCKIT Cable Checker.

?When I got my first look at the specifications, I knew the FCT-FCKIT was our answer! states Chase. ?It is well laid out and usable by anyone.

Chase further calls the Cable Checker ?an extremely valuable tool, allowing NCP to test the condition and quality of cables on site, before running cables. In addition, NCP tests all their returning cables before warehousing them to identify fiber cables that need cleaning or repair. In this way, NCP ensures their cables are ready to go when needed.

?Previously, when we encountered errors, we would wonder if we had an equipment or cable problem, Chase continues. ?Now we can easily test the cable and quickly get on with the business of television.

Rob Schwartz, Purchasing Manager of Joseph Electronics, thinks the Cable Checker is a must-have tool for ENG and mobile broadcasters. ?The FCT-FCKIT is simple and quick. In a few seconds, you know the condition of a cable before trying to use it, which is a real time saver, Schwartz says.
