Barnfind To Unveil New Products

News Image
Barnfind Technologies will unveil a number of new products at IBC2016, Stand 3.B19.

One of the new product launches will be the BarnOne Stage Box Break-out panel. This allows front panels to be customised 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 aluminium, with high performance connectors. Barnfind offers connectors for BNC's, RJ45, XLR female and male, LEMO for Camera and Lemo for CCU, and LC's among others.

The new BarnMini-05 combines an RS422/485, 4 x GPI and 4 x GPO, controllable via an Ethernet/SFP port. The unit can serve as a bridge between many third-party devices; such as transferring an RS422 signal or tally between two locations, or it can control an external optical changeover switch (BarnMini-06) in a redundancy setup. Triggers are easily set, and the module works with any BarnOne frames. BarnMini-05 is available as a standalone unit with a separate PSU, or mounted into the BarnMini BTF-Mini-16 frame that houses any combination of 16 BarnMini modules with a common PSU. BarnStudio, Barnfind's control software, can be used to configure and monitor BarnMini-05.

The new BarnMini-06 is able to integrate with GPO devices found in broadcast applications as it provides its own power needed to drive the switch. The compact device fits into the BarnMini BTF-Mini-16 frame instead of the BT-HOUS-LGX-1RU chassis.

Also at IBC2016, the company will introduce a 4-channel CWDM mux. The unit has been developed in response to requests for a module that could transport 4K over different mediums. The mux fits into the BarnMini BTF-Mini-16 frame, instead of the BT-HOUS-LGX-1RU chassis.

The BarnMini-11 is similar to the BarnMini-01, but offers support for up to 12G. The BarnMini-11 can handle 12G, 10G, 4K and any other video format with a lower data rate than 12G. It is also equipped with re-clocker. It is available as a standalone unit with a separate PSU, or mounted into the BarnMini BTF-Mini-16 frame that houses any combination of 16 BarnMini modules with a common PSU.

Barnfind Technologies has also recently released the new BarnMini-12, with support up to 12G capacity. It can handle 12G, 10G, 4K and any other video format with a lower data rate than 12G. It is equipped with re-clocker as the BarnMini-02. It is available as a standalone unit with a separate PSU, or mounted into the BarnMini BTF-Mini-16 frame that houses any combination of 16 BarnMini modules with a common PSU.

The new BTF1-10 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. The user can choose which of the SDI signals in the frame to use for (de) embedding.

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, 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.

The company's CAM-CCU transport solution has expanded from supporting 9 cameras to 18 cameras on a single fiber due to the new HiLo SFP system. The 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. Live demonstrations of the CAM-CCU system will be carried out at IBC2016.

Lastly, Barnfind's BarnOne solutions also now feature a new control protocol – an integrated Web Server, offering users more flexibility and user control.

Wiggo Evensen, CEO, Barnfind, said: "Barnfind returns to IBC stronger than ever with an extremely successful financial profile that has increased each and every month in 2016 resulting in a healthy profit margin and landmark year for sales. Recent deliveries include high-profile events such as the world-wide competitive Games in Rio where 12 broadcasters are using our solutions, and European and World Championships including European Soccer leagues, MotoGP and Formula1 races. And even though most of our business still comes from Broadcast and Telecom, Barnfind has expanded into many new market segments and won orders from organizations in telemedicine, cruise ships and oil & gas. We are proud that our initial goals from our launch in 2010 have been met, and our positive cash flow has enabled us to develop the company and our products ahead of schedule, a great and unusual situation for a young company.

"This year's IBC offers us the perfect opportunity to launch a number of new products that will greatly expand our BarnOne and BarnMini product lines. These additions will enhance our flexible, scalable solutions and provide customers with the tools to do more with less gear, in less space and spend less money. We will also be introducing new partners and employees who will help us continue the 100% growth this year that we have experienced every single year since the company launched."
