Racetech specs Van Damme Tourlight II Neutrik OpticalCon looms from the VDC SmartAsk Fibre Lab

Race Tech contacted VDC to work on a solution that would combine all of their fibre needs in two different lengths of custom pliosil looms. This would allow them to easily roll out the application on site, saving a lot of time and creating a durable and effective solution for their fibre runs.

VDC has the only accredited Fibre Termination Facility in Central London and is also the source for Neutrik approved Tourlight II Tactical single mode and multimode fibre multicores.

VDC has been working with Race Tech for many years and previously produced a lot of their HD video coax infrastructure in the form of other custom pliosil looms but for this particular project it was fibre that was required.

Race Tech is the dedicated technical facilities provider that has maintained British racing at the forefront of global broadcast technology for more than 70 years. Its innovations include the pioneering development of Horseracing’s first photo finish system and the introduction of full high definition broadcast and state of the art racecourse AV installations.
