Barix is introducing a device that combines its Instreamer and Exstreamer into a single box — the Exstreamer 1000.
It adds balanced I/O for professional radio broadcasters, according to the company, as well as contact closures. Eight closures allow broadcasters to transport data with the audio to trigger and control local announcements, such as station identification, an EAS signal or local studio cut-ins to a national feed. Barix says the contact closures eliminate the need to use additional automation equipment to trigger local inserts.
Highlights include a signal converter with a higher dB level to reduce noise and improve audio quality; and an AES/EBU interface to capture a digital signal at the source and maintain it throughout the chain.
Baris also will debut the Annuncicom 1000, a sibling to the Exstreamer 1000 and designed for integration into intercom and paging environments.
