NAB Sneak Peek: Barix Extends Redundix

IP stream repair tool is upgraded
By Brett Moss,

Barix has announced that its latest version of the Redundix IP stream redundancy and repair system will have an extra Ethernet port on it to increase redundancy.

Barix founder and Chief Technology Officer Johannes G. Rietschel said, “Redundix offers a cost-effective and efficient way to greatly reduce the impact on audio quality caused by issues on the transport layer for STL and other audio over IP applications.”

According to Barix, “Redundix adds resilience to IP-based transport by either time-delaying two streams on the same network, and/or sending a redundant stream over a separate path. On the receiving side, Redundix repairs lost packets in the stream caused by transport network imperfections using the time or path redundant streams. The result is better audio quality because lost packets are repaired, and audible imperfections are significantly reduced.”

Rietschel explained “Redundix, like the Barix IP STL solution, can be self-configured. For total peace of mind, broadcasters can offload configuration and management as part of the Reflector Service provided by our partner, StreamGuys. We are excited to bring this innovation to market as we evolve our product and services portfolio to reduce costs, enhance security, and improve stream availability and uptime for the radio broadcaster.”
