BTF1-41 Frame – the game changer with a network of functions
The BTF1-41 frame offers long-distance fiber transport, routing, distribution and conversion in one convenient package. The new optional SFP-16 mid-board with newly developed and unique BNC SFPs provides for increased agility and future-proof functionality. It empowers engineering and production professionals to easily overcome distance limitations by combining conversion from copper to fiber and back to copper with distribution and routing of 32+ signals in a 1 RU package.
The frame incorporates future-proof technology to address emerging formats such as 4K, HDMI 2.0 and IP, but also supports all legacy formats (including analog video) allowing facility designers and production engineers to utilize new and mature technology seamlessly with practically no distance limitations. The results are a multi-functional, signal neutral fiber transport platform that widens system design capabilities while permitting system reconfiguration on-the-fly.
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.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to bring our game-changing BFT1-41 Frame to the market with more features and functionality than ever,“ says Wiggo Evensen, Barnfind CEO. “The BTF1-41 is our most advanced unit to date, the first in the BarnOne series with multi-format 12G capacity that also incorporates HDMI 2.0 functionality, but now it will appeal to an even larger audience with the option to include more 12G BNC SFPs. We’re excited to announce that it’s joining our other fames and SPFs, BarnMini modules and StageBoxes.”
Barnfind is one of the very few manufacturers that offers a small unit with 2 x SFP for protocol agnostic signal conversion. BarnMini-22 is perfect for numerous applications, especially high-end CCTV/surveillance cameras, offers full built-in management of reclockers and signal control via BarnStudio and is capable of supporting any signals up to 12G.
BarnColor – Connect and forget
In a sneak peek at things to come, Barnfind will soon be debuting its new solution series, the BarnColor family. BarnColor, based on a highly innovative design allows even the most inexperienced users to easily “connect and forget”. Barnfind facilitates the entire operation for the customer, who needs only connect their SDIs, Ethernets with POE, HDMI, and audio as usual and connect their standard Dual Con Fiber connector into the BarnColor sender box and connect the incoming signal to the BarnColor receiver box. And instantly, they are up and running — transferring electrical to optical. BarnColor is available in 4 channel steps per half 1RU box and can be built up to 16 channels for any signal type. LEDs on the front panel provide status alerts; no software control is necessary. BarnColor is weatherproof and includes a built-in PSU and built-in FAN. Each BarnColor link will be offered at a very competitive price and will be available via normal sales channels and from the Web page.
