According to Jarle Marøy by Fotball Media, Barnfind has delivered a system that he describes as innovative. “Not only does it perform flawlessly in operation, it also reduced the operating cost dramatically. We did not know that it was that easy to implement a solution over hired dark fiber. Having a direct line to TV Norge (Norwegian Private Broadcaster) and the ability to receive uncompressed video from the soccer stadium is highly desirable. Even a simple BarnMini from Barnfind will do the job very cost effectively” says Marøy.

Martin Hertzberg from OB-Team AS that facilitates Fotball Media’s production is very happy with the control facilities that Barnfind offers. Hertzberg has made interactions between Barnfind’s integration to Ross openGear/DashBoard and Fotball Media’s large Ross installation at Ullevål. It is now very simple to make “drop down memory” buttons for easy operation. “Not only has Barnfind developed a unique routing and fiber solution in BarnOne that saves power, rack space and money, but what impresses me is the quality, low latency and the flexible control opportunities” says Hertzberg.

Barnfind’s partner in Norway, Danmon Norge and their Jens Vik was responsible for Ullevål installation and expressed happiness with the ease of installation and operation and look forward to demonstrating the advantages of Barnfind to the Norwegain Broadcasters. Even the small BarnMini can handle the EVS SDTI 3G signals from the XT family live video servers that few other expensive solution dcan “The easy handling of all kind of SDTI signals show the flexibility of Barnfind” says Vik.

Arild Skjeggerud, CTO of Barnfind adds that EVS Product Manager Thierry Pauwels has personally tested BarnMini in the EVS R&D department in Belgium HQ and noted that EVS will add a reference to the Barnfind units in future manuals as one of the few series that handle the whole range of SDTI from 270Mbps to 3Gbps.
