Barnfind Adds Future-Proof Functionality and Flexibility to BTF1-41 Frame at IBC 2019
By: Barnfind USA
BTF1-41 now offers optional BNC-32 Mid-Board
Barnfind's BTF1-41 empowers engineering and production professionals to easily overcome distance limitations by combining conversion from copper to fiber and back with distribution and routing of 32+ signals in a 1 RU package.
This Frame incorporates future-proof technology and addresses emerging formats such as 4K, HDMI 2.0 and IP and legacy formats (including analog video) allowing designers and engineers to utilize new and mature technology seamlessly with practically no distance limitations resulting in a multi-functional, signal neutral fiber transport platform that widens system design capabilities while permitting system reconfiguration on-the-fly.
It features a built in 36 x 36 router and is equipped with a card slot interconnected to a 16 x 16 router enabling it to service additional applications with more capabilities. Enhanced functionality that is available now, or scheduled to launch in the near future, includes up & down conversion, A/V processing, compression, and support for multi-viewers.
New for IBC: An optional multi-format BNC-32 Mid Board for the Frame's middle slot that allows third-party vendor technology to be integrated guaranteeing its longevity. Constantly upgraded functionality makes it resistant to obsolescence. This card provides an electrical – high-density mini-BNC – interface to the crosspoint switch. The mid-board features 16 inputs/outputs. Its multirange capabilities allow signal transparency from low rates up to 12 Gbps.
The multi-range / multi-format BTF1-41 is 12G capable, includes 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.
Barnfind's BarnMini-22 is perfect for numerous applications, especially high-end CCTV/surveillance cameras. The unit, capable of supporting any signals up to 12G, incorporates full built-in management of reclockers and signal control via BarnStudio. Barnfind is one of the very few manufacturers that offers a small unit with 2 x SFP for protocol agnostic signal conversion.
Barnfind's HiLo SFP system for 36-Channel CWDM illustrate the Company's capability to address higher density of signals in one 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.
