Barnfind’s NAB 2018 Lineup Improves Configuration Capabilities for Fiber Optic Transport Platforms

Barnfind Technologies returned to the 2018 NAB Show with an expansive line-up which included more control options, advanced functionality, and improved configuration capabilities.

The additions and enhancements to Barnfind’s core product families will not only help customers streamline their workflows, but also demonstrate the company’s continued commitment to green practices by packing numerous functions into one rack unit and keeping power consumption as low as possible. NAB highlights Included:


BarnOne Stage Box Break-out Panel System

​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 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.

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.

Barnfind 18 x CAM-CCU on One Fiber

Barnfind’s unique CAM-CCU transport solution supports up to 18 cameras on a single fiber thanks to Barnfind’s 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.
