Come this August, some 100 Barnfind BarnOne frames will be utilized for mission-critical transmissions during the world’s most famous competitive sporting events to be held in Rio de Janeiro. According to Wiggo Evensen, Barnfind CEO, 10-12 different broadcasters and sports/event companies will be using the flexible and unique BarnOne frames to ensure their operations run smoothly.
“Sports is an extremely important market segment for Barnfind, and we are pleased to report that sales in that area have increased nicely over the past 2 years,” explains Evensen. “With our unique built-in router and our ability to handle any SFPs, a client can change signal transport configurations on the fly in different stadiums for instance, or on race tracks like MotoGP and F1. Barnfind’s flexible stage-boxes can handle any signal format in any mix.”
Evensen continued: “Our popularity among many camera manufacturers is also increasing. They realize that the Barnfind solutions are very valuable for CAM-CCU (video, audio, tally, intercom and RCP) transport. Barnfind’s new high-low SFP system is unique in its ability to handle up to 18 cameras and CCUs on one single fiber which has resulted in significant interest and many sales,”
“Visit us at NAB, to see live demonstrations of our CAM-CCU transport solutions that will connect our booth (N902) in the North Hall with several camera manufacturers in Central Hall. We will also be highlighting new additions to the BarnOne, BarnMini and BarnStudio, ” says Evensen.
