Barnfind To Introduce New Web Interface and 12GB Platform at NAB 2018

Barnfind Technologies will introduce BarnOne studio interface with a web server and control via Telnet and a new 12 GB platform at NAB.

Barnfind said the 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. The frame now offers Telnet protocol in addition to SNMP for communication for enhanced responsiveness and reliability. Barnfind can be controlled by most third party control software solutions.

The company will introduce the BTF1-41 series, its first BarnOne with 12GB capacity and built-in SDI to IP. The series will have the same BarnStudio control system, and offer the same flexible third party control as the existing BarnOne 3G system. In addition, the BTF1-41 series will increase functionality consistently, making it a future-proof platform.

“The BTF1-41 will support users for years to come under the umbrella of a ‘network of functions,’" said Wiggo Evensen, CEO of Barnfind.

Barnfind’s latest firmware release includes significant added functionality via an integrated signal redundancy switch that can be configured 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.

Barnfind’s 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.

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.


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).


Finally, Barnfind’s CAM-CCU transport solution supports up to 18 cameras on a single fiber thanks to Barnfind’s HiLo SFP system. The system eliminates the need for heavy and expensive cabling by allowing up to 18 cameras to be multiplexed into one single mode fiber for bi-directional traffic over long distances.
