Barnfind Introduced New Fiber Products at 2016 NAB

Barnfind Technologies, a manufacturer of fiber transport equipment, has expanded its BarnOne and BarnMini fiber products at 2016 NAB.

Barnfind said the company has introduced the BTF1-10 frame, the BarnOne 12G transceiver, the HiLo SFP fiber booster and an integrated Web server option among its new products.

The new BarnMini-05 is a compact way to combine an RS422/485, 4 x GPI and 4 x GPO controllable via an Ethernet/SFP port. The unit can serve as an intelligent bridge between many third-party devices.

Triggers are easily set and the module works well in conjunction 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.

Changeover switches are offered by many different vendors, but Barnfind has been at the forefront with their popular BT-OCS-2-LGX that can be mounted into a BT-HOUS-LGX-1RU chassis.

Now the company has introduced a new optical changeover switch, the BarnMini-06, which is easier to integrate with the GPO devices that are found in broadcast applications since it can now provide its own power needed to drive the switch. This new device is also slightly smaller, and fits into the BarnMini frame, BTF-Mini-16, instead of the BT-HOUS-LGX-1RU chassis.

Barnfind also introduced the big brother to its popular BarnMini-01 solution that delivers simple and reliable point-to-point digital extension with the new BarnMini-11. With an exact same look, it 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. BarnMini-11 was developed in response to a number of requests from broadcasters, as well as Telco clients.

BarnMini-11 is equipped with re-clocker, just as BarnMini-01. It is available as a standalone unit with a separate PSU, or mounted into the BarnMini frame, BTF-Mini-16 that houses any combination of 16 BarnMini modules with a common PSU.

Following on the success of the company’ BarnMini-02 with 2 x SFP ports for transceiver and capacity up to 3G SFPs, Barnfind introduced BarnMini-12, with support up to 12G capacity. The BarnMini-12 can handle 12G, 10G, 4K and any other video format with a lower data rate than 12G.

Barnfind’s new BTF1-10 offers an eight-channel embedder and de embedder for analog audio. The frame includes the standard main board with 16 x SFP ports and 8 x BNC top board and offers the same functionality as other members of the BarnOne family. The BTF1-10 has a built-in SDI generator that can be used as the audio carrier and/or test picture.

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). The HiLo SPFs are designed to be used with a standard optical multiplexer.

Barnfind’s CAM-CCU transport solution has expanded from supporting nine cameras to 18 cameras on a single fiber thanks to Barnfind’s new and innovative HiLo SFP system. The system eliminates the need for heavy cabling by allowing up to 18 cameras to be multiplexed into one single mode fiber for bi-directional traffic over long distances.
