The improvements also reflect Barnfind’s commitment to green practices by packing numerous functions into one rack unit and keeping power consumption as low as possible. The additions and upgrades are being demonstrated on Barnfind’s Stand A33 in Hall 8.

“This year Barnfind is delighted to have an OB van on our stand so visitors will have the opportunity to witness a real-world example of our unique platform at work,” says Wiggo Evensen, Barnfind’s CEO. “In addition, our team is available to demonstrate how we do more with less gear, in less space and with less money, and explain how we’ve grown from a start-up in 2012, to a global company with 60 international partners that excels in fiber transport, stage box technology, signal redundancy, multiple camera control and much, much more.

NEW for EUROPE at IBC

BarnOne with Web Server and control via Telnet
Barnfind’s new web interface provides efficient installation, configuration and operation of one or multiple BarnOne frames. The (free) firmware update allows access to a new version of BarnStudio control software with functionalities also available via OpenGear Dashboard (ROSS Video). The frame now offers Telnet protocol in addition to SNMP for communication for enhanced responsiveness and reliability.

Signal Redundancy Switch

Barnfind’s latest firmware release includes significant added functionality via an integrated signal redundancy switch that can beconfigured for all BarnOne’s outputs. Regardless of signal format, bandwidth, optical or electrical, each individual output can be configured with “alternative” inputs and can all run in parallel or individually. The switch supplies full control of signal presence, quality and status, and provides a complex, advanced redundancy system. Functions can be configured and monitored in the new BarnStudio web interface.

BTF1-10-AA and BTF1-10-AESemb

BTF1-10-AESemb offers an 8-channel embedder and de-embedder for AES audio. The frame includes the standard main board with 16 x SFP ports and 8 x BNC top board included and offers the same functionality as other members of the BarnOne family. Users can identify SDI signals in the frame to use for (de) embedding.

BTF1-10-AA offers 8x analog audio input, 8x analog audio output converted to/from MADI.  The frame includes the standard main board with 16 x SFP ports and 8 x BNC top board included. The BTF1-10-AA offers the same functionality as all BarnOne frames. MADI signals can be identified in the frame for analog audio transport.

BarnOne

BarnOne Stage Box Break-out panel system
Barnfind’s new Stage Box Break-out panel allows front panels to be customized based on the required connectors. A selection of eight modules will serve as connection points to one or more BarnOne or BarnMini units. All eight modules and the 2RU chassis are made of solid aluminum, with high performance connectors. Barnfind offers connectors for BNC’s, RJ45, XLR female and male, LEMO for Camera and LEMO for CCU, LC’s among others This solution makes installations simpler, safer and much more flexible.

HiLo SFP

New HiLo SFP system for 36-Channel CWDM
Barnfind HiLo SFPs are designed to meet a need for higher density of signals in one single fiber. By using half of the spacing in each wavelength of the CWDM range, the HiLo SFPs can double the capacity of the traditional CWDM bi-directional transmission. This enables a total of 18 bi-directional links (resulting in 36 channels on one single fiber). The HiLo SPFs are designed to be used with a standard optical CWDM multiplexer.

CAM-CCU

Barnfind 18 x CAM-CCU on one fiber
Barnfind’s unique CAM-CCU transport solution has expanded from supporting 9 cameras to 18 cameras on a single fiber thanks to Barnfind’s new and innovative HiLo SFP system. The sophisticated and compact system eliminates the need for heavy and expensive cabling by allowing up to 18 cameras to be multiplexed into 1 single mode fiber for bi-directional traffic over long distances. An internal matrix router allows the user to switch any camera to any CCU. Other signals, such as MADI, SDI, SDTI, Ethernet, CVBS, AES, and ASI, can also be multiplexed into the same fiber. The total solution fits in only 2RU per side.
