Barnfind Americas to Exhibit at NAB New York 2016

Barnfind Americas will be exhibiting in booth 1105 at this year’s NAB New York, to be held on November 9-10 at the Javits Convention Centre. The company will be featuring additions to the poplar BarnMini family of small, portable, low-cost devices for the single channel extension of BNC, SFP, and/or HDMI connections while also demonstrating its popular BarnOne BTF1-07 frame, that supports all signals and functions in one chassis and features a built-in 32x32 router

One of the main highlights, though, is Barnfind’s CAM-CCU signal transport solution that replaces the need for restrictive and heavy cables with a bi-directional single mode fiber solution capable of supporting up to 18 cameras and signals of any kind.

The new BarnMini-11, big brother to Barnfind’s popular BarnMini-01, was developed in response to customer requests, and delivers simple and reliable point-to-point digital extensions. The new BarnMini-12 follows the success of the Company’s BarnMini-02 that features 2 x SFP ports for transceivers and capacity up to 3G SFPs.

Both units differ from their predecessors with their capacity to handle 12G, 10G, 4K and any other video format with a lower data rate than 12G. They are both equipped with re-clockers, same as their smaller siblings and are available as standalone units with a separate PSU, or mounted into the BarnMini frame - the BTF-Mini-16 that houses any combination of 16 BarnMini modules with a common PSU.

The 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 or it can control an external optical changeover switch (BarnMini-06) in a redundancy setup. 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. The company is highlighting an 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.

The new BarnOne 12G looks the same as its predecessor and has the same mechanical design, PSU, and control as other products in the well-established BarnOne family, but handles all data rates up to 12G. The main board in the 12G version has 16 x SFP ports each with 12G capacity, a 32 x 32 router and full re-clocker like the standard BarnOne 3G series. The new 12G series sets a new standard for flexibility with only one chassis; and has the unique ability to upgrade with any top card.
