Barix Updates Exstreamer 500

Apr 2, 2013 2:07 PM

Zurich - Apr 2, 2013 - Barix enhances its Exstreamer 500 bi-directional audio device at the 2013 NAB Show to improve audio quality and streaming flexibility. The device now supports both constant and variable bit-rates, with the former added to simplify streaming to Shoutcast and Icecast servers - pertinent for extending how broadcasters incorporate Barix IP audio solutions for live streaming and syndicated program distribution. A new chip improves quality of the analog-to-digital conversion path to enhance professional broadcast sound.

The Exstreamer 500 is a multiprotocol encoder and decoder with balanced audio and professional I/O options for signal relay and control. In broadcast, it is ideal for STL and remote contribution applications. Broadcasters can simplify configuration using the Exstreamer 500 with the Barix Reflector Service, creating a complete streaming audio solution that replicates a received stream to an unlimited number of destinations through the public Internet. The Reflector Service is based on a simple server-client architecture that removes IP address, server and other configuration hassles.
