Reflector Service eliminates firewall poking and static IP addresses that are difficult to configure. It even eliminates basic router forwarding configuration, as devices are automatically partnered following connection to the Reflector Service via the Web. Reflector Service is part of a STL out-of-the-box package featuring the new Exstreamer 500. Barix will offer the Reflector Service free of charge to Exstreamer 500 and 1000 customers for several months before charging a nominal annual fee. Hot standby/backup service and 24/7 monitoring of the stream will be made available at a later date.
