FUZHOU, China – Barnfind Technologies, manufacturer of a revolutionary multi-functional, signal neutral transport platform, has announced that its BarnOne flagship series was selected as the signal transport system for the IBC Media Center in Fuzhou Haixia Olympic Sports Center for the 1st Chinese Youth Games. The BarnOne system was responsible for signal transmission, routing, switching, and monitoring for the IBC Media Center, 12 stadiums, Fujian sports channel, CCTV sports channel, studio signal, and the signals for the on-site video wall.
The 1st Chinese Youth Games came to a successful close on October 27th following 10 days of competition when more than 7900 athletes from 55 delegations competed in 305 events in Fujian Province.
Following an intense two-month testing period, BarnOne performed flawlessly throughout the live broadcasts and successfully fulfilled its mission as a main signal transport hub, once again demonstrating its capabilities to support large sports events. The BarnOne series played an important role as a communication hub for all signal transport/switching/routing/conversion. Several BarnOne frames (BTF01-04, 32 SFP ports with 32x32 matrix) were used as main/redundant O/E signal transport and core signal matrix routing with numerous BarnMini-01 (BNC-SFP bi-directional) units installed separately in 12 venues to send the live signal (main/redundant) back to the BTF01-04 frames in IBC Media center. The BarnOne units and the BarnMini throw down boxes distributed the communication between IBC media center and other surrounding venues.
Mr. Pan, Chief Technical Person-in Charge for the China Youth Games said: 'Barnfind’s innovative technology in the product design enabled us to be confident in their product performance in many different practical applications. It helped to achieve a successful and satisfactory signal transport carried by us. A durable, stable and high-quality signal transport which provided a great efficiency and convenience for our entire broadcasting session. Barnfind brought a flawless signal quality to our audiences national-wide. We are impressed by the products flexibility, functionality and stability”.
The system design and integration was facilitated by Barnfind’s regional partner - Guangzhou Digi-Red Electronic Equipment co., Ltd. “As the solution provider, two of our technical engineers used only 1 day for on-site installation and testing - this has proven again Barnfind products’ user-friendly advantage in installation and easy-maintenance” said Mr. Chen Can, General Manager of Digi-Red Electronic Equipment Co. Ltd.
