New to InfoComm: BarnMini-11
The new BarnMini-11, big brother to Barnfind’s popular BarnMini-01, delivers simple and reliable point-to-point digital extension and offers support up to 12G. It can handle 12G, 10G, 4K and any other video format with a lower data rate than 12G. BarnMini-11 was developed in response to customer requests and is equipped with re-clocker, just as BarnMini-01. It is available as a standalone unit with a separate PSU, or mounted into the BarnMini frame, BTF-Mini-16 that houses any combination of 16 BarnMini modules with a common PSU.
New to InfoComm: BarnMini-12
Following on the success of the company’s BarnMini-02 with 2 x SFP port for transceiver and capacity up to 3G SFPs, Barnfind now introduces BarnMini-12, with support up to 12G capacity. The BarnMini-12 can handle 12G, 10G, 4K and any other video format with a lower data rate than 12G. It is equipped with re-clocker as the BarnMini-02. BarnMini-12 is available as a standalone unit with a separate PSU, or mounted into the BarnMini frame, BTF-Mini-16 that houses any combination of 16 BarnMini modules with a common PSU.
InfoComm Highlights: BarnMini-01, 02, 03 and 04
Barnfind’s BarnMini-01 provides 2 x BNC and 1 x SFP (MSA standard or 3rd party SFP), while the BarnMini-02 comes with 2 x SFP and is optimal for converting multimode to single mode fiber, and single mode to multimode fiber in addition to handling any other application.

All BarnOne Frames are equipped with a full built-in intelligent 32 x 32 crosspoint matrix for the full flexibility to route, switch and duplicate any input to any output, regardless if it is optical or coaxial.
