Barnfind Technologies Builds Fiber Transmission Network for Xiamen TV’s BRICS Summit
Barnfind Technologies, manufacturer of a multi-functional, signal neutral fiber transport platform, has provided the infrastructure for a fiber optic transmission system used by Xiamen TV to produce the ninth annual BRICS Summit. BRICS, an association of the world’s five major emerging national economies: Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, convened in host city Xiamen from September 3 – 5 at Xiamen International Conference Center.
Working with its local Chinese partner, DIGIRED, Barnfind provided a configuration of fiber optical transmission systems that served the public signal control center and facilitated transmission between multiple studios and OB Vans.
“We didn’t have to replace the cables like in the old days of traditional fiber-optic transceivers, we just used BarnOne’s built-in matrix,” says Chen Can of DIGIRED, Barnfind’s Chinese Mainland Master Distributor in Guangzhou. “It is so easy to operate the BarnOne frames with Barnstudio, and we also had the pleasure of using Barnfind’s world class signal redundancy that gave the end user maximum security as a premium. Anything can be switched between different signal types, like HDMI and SDI, in order to quickly meet a number of signal interface requirements. At the same time we did a lot of quad 4K supported (4x 3G) signal mode transmission that was very important to the Xiamen BRICS IBC news center transmission system.”
Barnfind’s BarnOne frames and BarnMini family of modules, chosen for their flexibility and stability, played a critical role in this large-scale fiber transmission. The system comprised over 100 different types of BarnMini’s and 13 BTF1-02 BarnOne frames for a complete optical fiber network. Following the Summit, the products were integrated into many different applications within the Xiamen TV Station.
