Barnfind's BarnOne Deployed For Studio

News Image
Barnfind Technologies' BarnOne series has been chosen as the signal transport system for a new mobile four-channel Ulstra-HD/EFP (Electronic Field Production) studio for Zhongshan Broadcasting & Television, China.

Barnfind's BTF1-02 frame serves as main/redundant routing matrix for the studio and integrates with Blackmagic's ATEM 4K production switcher to complete live/record broadcastings for outdoor news, theatrical performances and other events.

Due to limited rack space available for field production, an audio, video, signal routing, intercom, tally and monitoring system are comprised in a 9RU flight case. Zhongshan Broadcasting & Television station installed 1RU BarnOne BTF1-02 frames, with 16xHDBNC and 16xSFP ports including the 32x32 matrix, to comprise the core routing matrix which operates up to 16 channels of optical signals and 20 channels of HD-SDI signals for massive signal communication and transport between cameras, switchers, and the record-and-control system.

The BarnOne frame not only helps the station transport the traditional main/redundant HD-SDI signals, but also incorporates intercom, tally, signal monitoring and control signals into the workflow. In addition, while the BarnOne series serves as the main/redundant backup, it also transforms into a looping system for 8 x channel Ultra-HD live/recording entity on site.

Mr Liu, Chief Technician in Zhongshan Broadcasting & Television, said: "Compared with the traditional on-field studio setup, the BarnOne system demonstrates significant advantages from its smart and advanced space-saving design, application flexibility and multi-functionality resulting in convenient on-field production. Barnfind performed flawlessly during our live production. It inspires us to do more innovative concepts of broadcasting in our region. We believe the potential for Barnfind is huge."

The system design and integration was facilitated by Barnfind's regional partner – Guangzhou Digi-Red Electronic Equipment co., Ltd.
