Barix Ships Third-Generation Audio-to-Mobile Solution to Enhance On-Location Experiences and Engagement

AudioPoint 3.0 delivers lower-latency audio streaming to the mobile phone and streamlines integration while enabling new personalized, on-site listening experiences


ZURICH, SWITZERLAND, June 14, 2018 — Just in time for InfoComm, Audio over IP pioneer Barix has started shipping AudioPoint 3.0, the third generation of the ground-breaking, low-latency audio-to-mobile platform that sparked the convergence of digital signage, audio streaming and BYOD trends. Supporting two channels of audio streaming for up to 250 simultaneous mobile listeners in each fully-integrated hardware device, AudioPoint 3.0 made its North American debut at InfoComm 2018 in Las Vegas.

 

Pairing powerful, cost-effective new hardware with free, downloadable iOS and Android apps, version 3.0 of AudioPoint significantly accelerates signal processing for robust stream reliability while reducing the solution’s already-impressive latency to further tighten lip sync. Allowing audio streaming to mobile devices over local Wi-Fi in near-perfect synchronization with associated displays, these advances enhance AudioPoint’s benefits for giving digital signage a voice while enabling new applications serving hearing-impaired audiences, live translations and presentation support in corporate, worship and education settings.

 

These real-time advantages also make AudioPoint 3.0 an ideal direct-to-listener, personal audio delivery system for volume-sensitive environments such as hotel lobbies, libraries and museums, or noisy locations such as live event venues and sports bars.

 

“Five years after we first led the BYOD charge with the initial AudioPoint release, we continue to unlock new applications and new markets that can truly benefit from its cost-efficient, low-latency approach,” said Reto Brader, vice president of sales and marketing, Barix. “The advances in AudioPoint 3.0 further enhance its advantages in live environments while opening up a whole new world of previously-inaccessible audio experiences for hearing-impaired and foreign-language participants. We’re excited to ship AudioPoint 3.0 to our global customers.”

 

Built on Barix’s new IPAM 400 IP Audio Module, the new AudioPoint 3.0 hardware combines all required functionality including encoding and channel server capabilities into one compact form factor to lower costs and integration time. Enhanced networking intelligence ensures compatibility with most professional and off-the-shelf routers, simplifying purchasing and deployment while speeding installation.

 

AudioPoint 3.0’s efficient architecture makes operation straightforward for customers and their audiences. Source audio – whether associated with video content, or a microphone feed in a live scenario – is fed to the audio input of the AudioPoint 3.0 hardware, which encodes it in real time for streaming. Visitors connect their mobile devices to a Wi-Fi access point on the same network as the AudioPoint unit, and the Barix Audio Signage app – available in app stores or via a QR Code displayed on site – immediately enables the live stream. Consumers can select between available audio channels in the app, letting them choose between languages or switch to the soundtrack of another nearby local display screen.
