Bringing a Future-Proof IP Migration Strategy to U.S. Customers: Barnfind Americas at InfoComm 2015

InfoComm 2015
Barnfind Americas
Booth 5264
June 13-19

At InfoComm 2015, Barnfind Americas will showcase its family of transport solutions designed to streamline and simplify IP operations in the media environments of today and tomorrow -- including its flagship BarnOne multifunctional signal transport platform, BarnMini compact transport devices, and family of small form-factor pluggable (SFP) devices. Working in tandem, these products will be featured in several live demonstrations of IP-based signal transport. Ideal for fiber transport, multiplexing, routing, conversion, distribution, IP/Ethernet, 4K workflows, and CAM-CCU, Barnfind's solutions support many input formats and SFP devices -- making it easy to add capacity or change signals as operations evolve. Barnfind solutions enable digital media service delivery in a wide range of environments including broadcast, campus networks, defense, digital signage, events and sports, houses of worship, oil and gas, and telemedicine. 

Barnfind BarnOne Multifunctional Signal Transport Platform 
Barnfind's flagship solution, BarnOne, allows numerous signals in one frame while consuming little power. BarnOne supports common video and telecommunications formats including SMPTE-2022-6, SDI, HD-SDI, 3G, HDMI, DVI, 4K 60p, SDTI (EVS), black burst, CAM-CCU, AES, MADI, KVM, IP/Ethernet, and STM-1 telco. All BarnOne frames are equipped with a full 32 x 32 crosspoint matrix that can route, switch, and duplicate any optical or coaxial input to any output. They provide reclocking on all outputs (BNCs and SFPs), reference input, full redundancy, and the capability of integrated CWDM/DWDM multiplexing.

Barnfind Small Form-Factor Pluggables (SFPs)
Barnfind offers many of its own cost-effective SFPs, and its products are compatible with other manufacturers' MSA-compliant SFPs.

"For many U.S. media enterprises, making the switch to IP operations is a top priority -- but it can be a challenging proposition. At our InfoComm debut, we're looking forward to showing attendees how our award-winning solutions can help operations ease the transition from baseband video to IP workflows with a flexible system that can meet today's needs and then be easily expanded for tomorrow's requirements. For example, our solutions accept any SFP, and we're prepared for any new ones that will emerge, with the ability to handle signals up to 10Gbps."
