Barnfind Fiber System Took Stage for Tony Broadcast

BarnOne fiber transport was used for 2016 Tony Awards broadcast

LAGUNA NIGUEL, CALIF.—CP Communications recently called upon Barnfind Americas to design and supply a fiber-based signal transport system for the 2016 Tony Awards. The result was a modular system comprised of two BarnOne-02 frames, each with eight channels of HD/SDI to optical conversion and a pair of BT-House-LGX-CWDM-16 multiplexers, and one pair of Ethernet to optical SFPs.

With this BarnOne system producers could occupy up to eight HD/SDI electrical sources from BNC to optical fiber either individually on a one-to-one basis or multiplex them together over a single fiber link. The system also allowed for transportation of Gig-E network traffic over the same fiber link and offered modular flexibility.

Barnfind Americas is the U.S.-based presence of Norway’s Barnfind Technologies.
