Launched at IBC2018, the BTF1-41 frame for long-distance fibre transport, routing, distribution and conversion is returning to IBC this year with an optional BNC-32 mid-board to provide electrical interface.
“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,” said Wiggo Evensen, Barnfind CEO. “And now it will appeal to an even larger audience with the option to include a mini-BNC interface.”
The company’s transport solution supports any digital protocol, whether electrical or optical. The platform eliminates the need for heavy and expensive cabling by allowing up to 36 signals travelling through one single mode fibre over distances up to 80km (50 miles). The multi-format BNC-32 Mid Board allows third-party vendor technology to be integrated into the platform. This new card will give the user an electrical interface to the crosspoint switch, and the board features 16 inputs and outputs. Its multirange capabilities allow signal transparency from low rates up to 12Gbps. In addition to being 12G capable, the multi-range / multi-format BTF1-41 includes a built-in GPIO, Tally and UMD control.
