Barnfind Technologies to Introduce Multi-Functional Signal Neutral Platform

Barnfind Technologies, a recently launched company established to bring a multi-functional, signal neutral transport platform to all segments of the broadcast industry, has announced plans to introduce the European market to its product portfolio at IBC 2013. Wiggo Evensen, CEO, made the Company’s exhibition plans public from the Company’s new, expanded headquarters in Sandefjord, Norway.

“Barnfind fills a void for those that must adhere to space and budget limitations, but can’t sacrifice robust capabilities and power efficiency,” said Evensen. “The advanced technology replaces the need for numerous circuit boards via SFPs, and the 1RU chassis provides the same functionality usually requiring 3 to 6 RU.“

Barnfind’s exhibit will center around its flagship product, BarnOne, that provides up to 32 ports with either 32 x SFPs from various manufacturers offering different capabilities, or a mix with 8 or 16 BNC’s, or CWDM/DWDM multiplexing, or 3rd party cards. The unit features a built in electrical and/or optical router with bi-directional BNCs and SFPs and reclocking on all outputs. A flexible configuration of CWDM (8/16), DWDM (up to 88 channels) and a comprehensive functionality suite include standard SDI conversion, routing, multiplexing, embedding, add/drop, crossover, distribution, IP to ASI/ASI to IP conversion, HDMI, STM-1 Telco, MADI, and AES. All SPF+ cages are 10Gbit ready.

BarnOne offers the end-user the unique ability to use any kind of SFP or SMART SFP, opening up a whole new set of options and advantages. Custom designed SFP solutions can also be integrated into the total solution.

Ideally suited for the Television-Broadcast, Service Providers and Post Production markets, Barnfind products will also accommodate Oil & Gas, Digital Signage, Telemedicine/Healthcare, Education, Government, CCTV/Security, Defense, AV applications, and Entertainment and Sports Events.

Drop by the Barnfind Technologies stand #2.A14 at the upcoming IBC2013, September 12 – 17, RAI Amsterdam.
