Barnfind Americas’ John Brendle to Present at SMPTE 2015

SUWANEE, Ga. — Sept. 30, 2015 — Barnfind Americas today announced that the company’s director of technology, John Brendle, will make a technical presentation at the upcoming SMPTE 2015 Annual Technical Conference & Exhibition (SMPTE 2015). The annual SMPTE 2015 conference will take place Oct. 26-29 in Hollywood, California. Brendle’s presentation, titled “A Single Strand of Glass: The Incredible Power of Optical Fiber in Production Environments,” is scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 27, at 11:15 a.m. 

As part of the session “Is Coax Ready for the Undertaker?” Brendle will present use cases for optical fiber and its short- and long-term benefits in today’s rapidly evolving media environments. “With 4K/UHDTV looming, traditional analog and digital signals are coexisting alongside emerging formats such as HEVC H.265 in many operations,” he commented. “With its ability to handle any signal type with the appropriate terminal gear, the versatility and flexibility of fiber make it the starting point for any future-proof’ operation. And, by carrying many different types of signals over a single cable, fiber drastically reduces the number of cables required in an operation — for reduced costs, faster setup and tear-down, and easier troubleshooting.”

SMPTE 2015 is the world’s premier forum for the exploration of media and entertainment technology. More information about the conference, including registration details, is available at More information about Barnfind Americas is available at
