Cologne-based production company wige BROADCAST has selected Barnfind Technologies’ BarnOne platform as the centre of its transport infrastructure. wige deploys technology to domestic and international broadcasters for live sporting events.
Barnfind supplied wige with several BarnOne BTF1-02 frames capable of routing, fibre transport, multiplexing and distribution all within the same frame. In addition, a separate optical housing for each system was installed for CWDM multiplexing that is expandable with optical splitters. wige has also adopted Barnfind’s BarnStudio control software.
“Barnfind has not only proven to have great and flexible products that allow us to use and change any SFPs and signal formats on the fly, but their technical and customer service before, during and after installation – is outstanding,” said Jürgen Blitz, wige’s head of technical operations.
He continued: “wige is focused mostly on motor sport production and does Formula 1, DTM (Deutsche Touring Meisterschaft) and the 24 Hours race at Nürburgring. We need equipment we can trust to operate flawlessly and continuously. We also like that Barnfind has a large and worldwide network of partners and if we need any support for a production anywhere in the world, for example Brazil, we know that their local partner will be there.”
