Panel gets breakout boost9 September 2016
A Stage Box breakout panel for the BarnOne frame is being shown for the first time at this year’s IBC.
The Barnfind Stage Box allows a BarnOne front panel to be customised based on the required connectors. Eight modules are available to serve as the connection points to one or more BarnOne units.
All eight modules and the 2RU chassis are made of solid aluminium. Barnfind offers connectors for BNCs, RJ45, XLR female and male, Lemo for camera and Lemo for CCU.
Also on show for the first time is the BarnMini-05, a compact module for combining RS422/485 with 4 x GPI and 4 x GPO and controlling the signals via an Ethernet/SFP port.
The unit can serve as an intelligent bridge between many third-party devices, transferring, for example, an RS422 signal or tally between two locations. Alternatively it can control an external optical changeover switch in a redundancy set-up.
Able to work with any BarnOne frame, the BarnMini-05 is available as a standalone unit with a separate PSU, or mounted into the BarnMini BTF-Mini-16 frame. Other new Barnfind products on show at IBC include an optical changeover switch, the BarnMini-06, and a four-channel
CWDM mux, the BarnMini-07-04. The latter module can transport 4K over different mediums and fits into the BarnMini BTF-Mini-16 frame.
Wiggo Evensen, chief executive, Barnfind, said: “These additions enhance our flexible, scalable solutions and provide customers with the tools to do more with less gear, in less space and spend less money.”
