At NAB, Barnfind Technologies will introduce a new frame that permits the conversion, routing and distribution of 4K content for long distances over fiber.
Barnfind said the new BTF1-41 fiber transport technology handles 12G-SDI and HDMI 2.0 (4,4,4) capture, processing and distribution. The new frame allows engineers to overcome distance limitations by combining conversion to fiber (and back to copper), distribution and routing of 32+ signals in a 1 RU package.
SDI signals up to 12G-SDI, HDMI 2.0 feeds, CCU/CAM signaling, KVM and Ethernet can all be converted, distributed, transported and routed — all in one package.
With technology to support all emerging signal formats, including 4K, HDMI 2.0 and IP, the BTF1-41 frame also supports legacy formats (including analog video). It allows the creation of a multi-functional, signal neutral fiber transport platform that widens system design capabilities while permitting system reconfiguration on-the-fly.
The BTF1-41 will be shown alongside enhanced versions of Barnfind’s core BarnOne and BarnMini families that now offer more control options, advanced functionality and improved configuration capabilities.
The BTF1-41 is 12G capable, includes a 36 x 36 router, a built-in GPIO, tally and UMD control. The frame features BarnStudio, Barnfind’s control software, and also offers the same flexible third-party control as the existing BarnOne 3G system.
The BTF1-41 is a solution for a variety of applications in the broadcast arena including sports production.
