Barix Technology says it will be exhibiting at the NAB Radio Show for the first time, bringing along its Instreamer-100 and Exstreamer-100 audio encoding and decoding units.
The Instreamer encodes audio from analog and digital devices into the MP3 format in real time for point-to-point or multipoint delivery over the Internet or IP-based systems. The serial port in the Instreamer allows the operator to control additional devices remotely over the same network connection from any location.
The Exstreamer is a network-based audio decoder that pulls digital audio from an IP network and converts it to music or voice at the receiving address.
Additionally, the company will debut a programmable software feature for both products that allows system integrators and OEMs to develop custom applications in a network-, audio- or USB-flash environment. Broadcasters can use the programmable software for applications such as fixed STL, remote pickups, audio stream monitoring and alarm transmission; and also schedule announcers, call sign generators or network or I/O triggered alarming devices with supervision.
