Barnfind has installed a fibre transport solution at the Norwegian Nationals Soccer Stadium Ullevål. The solution comprises BarnOne frames and optical muxes, and was delivered to Fotball Media, which handles the production and distribution of national soccer in Norway.
“Not only does it perform flawlessly in operation, it also reduced the operating cost dramatically,” said Jarle Marøy of Fotball Media. “We did not know that it was that easy to implement a solution over hired dark fibre. Having a direct line to [Norwegian broadcaster] TV Norge and the ability to receive uncompressed video from the soccer stadium is highly desirable. Even a simple BarnMini from Barnfind will do the job very cost effectively.”
Martin Hertzberg from the OB team that facilitates Fotball Media’s production, commented: “Not only has Barnfind developed a unique routing and fibre solution in BarnOne that saves power, rack space and money, but what impresses me is the quality, low latency and the flexible control opportunities.”
Jens Vik of Danmon Norge, Barnfind's partner in Norway and the company responsible for the Ullevål installation, expressed his happiness with the installation and operation. Even the small BarnMini can handle SDTI signals from EVS at an affordable price compared to others, Vik reports. “The easy handling of all kind of SDTI signals show the flexibility of Barnfind,” he added.
