Barnfind’s New Web Interface Adds Functionality, Improves Workflow

Barnfind Technologies has announced the introduction of a new web interface for the BarnOne series that adds a range of new functionalities and updates including a signal redundancy switch, improved access levels for log in and workflow efficiencies.

The latest release from Barnfind provides a path to a more 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 significantly updated functionalities which are also available from an openGear Dashboard (Ross Video).

The frame, is now accessible, via web and offers telnet protocol as an addition to SNMP for communication. For the end-user, this protocol has the advantage of being more responsive and reliable.

The new web interface allows user to set up access levels and prevent unauthorised people the ability to configure or operate the system. Users can be categorised as administrator, operator or guest.

A significant new functionality of Barnfind’s latest release is an integrated signal redundancy switch that can be configured to all the BarnOne’s outputs.

The redundancy switch functionality gives the user full control of signal presence, quality and status.

From being a simple converter/router/ distributer, the range of BarnOne frames have evolved into a complex and advanced redundancy system. Even at this level of complexity, the redundancy functions can easily be configured and monitored in the new released BarnStudio web interface.

Regardless of signal format, bandwidth, optical or electrical; each individual output can be configured with “alternative” input(S), and they all run individually in parallel.

The change-over function is activated by 3 different validations: Signal LOS, SDI analyser and Signal errors.
