Barnfind platform takes World Cup to China
Barnfind Technologies’ multi-functional, signal-neutral transport platform is bringing the World Cup championship games to over 200 million viewers in China. Barnfind CTO Arild Skjeggerud said that a Chinese TV station/service provider selected the Norwegian system to distribute signals originating at the World Cup in Brazil.
The system is based on a series of Barnfind frames and includes several muxes, many different SFPs for HD, Ethernet, HDMI and other signal formats.
“The Barnfind products have been performing flawlessly and our client is very happy with the platform’s technical advantages,” said Mr Chen of Tian Bang, a partner of master distributor SkyDigita located in Guangzhou City in China. “The Chinese broadcast/telecom authorities are so impressed that they have certified and approved the series and Barnfind is now a value-added supplier that can operate across China.”
“This project has been a successful co-operation between Barnfind Norway, our Chinese partners and the TV station/broadcast service provider in South China,” added Arild Skjeggerud.
