Zurich, Switzerland - Apr 15, 2009 - Barix has launched launch of Barix Radio, the company's 24/7 streaming radio station. The station is programmed for Barix by DMD2, a Swiss content provider and Barix business partner, using licensed content.
Barix Radio features an eclectic mix of music and no advertisements, but it also can be used as a test channel for audio-over-IP applications as a continuous stream. Future shipments of Barix Exstreamer IP decoders will include a preconfigured Barix Radio URL that will automatically begin streaming once connected to the Internet.
The station is hosted by Stream Guys, a streaming media provider and content delivery network that often partners with Barix for distribution of radio programs, in-store media and other audio streaming applications. Barix Radio will also add an AAC Plus stream in the future.
