2001 - Founded
Barix AG is founded 2001 in Zürich, Switzerland by Johannes Rietschel. It all started with digital audio encoders and decoders for professional applications such as background music in retail. To set this into relation: 2001 is the year Apple introduces the first iPod product. The success of the following years will have much to do with Barix’s intuitive engineeringstyle and reliable implementation of products that solve the real-world challenges in a pragmatic way.
2004 - First Success
Back in 2004, radio broadcasting does mostly rely on expensive analog equipment which required highly trained, specified technicians. Barix is among the first which brings the IP technology into the broadcast market at a much lower price point, changing it forever. Many smaller radio stations and event venues are able, for the first time, to use advanced radio technology themselves and stream their message to the local communities. As a result, the company grows into an established worldwide organization that distributes its technology over a network of authorized resellers.
2006 - Portfolio growth
More solutions follow the demand for background music, SIP paging, intercom and automation. Clever engineering approaches to solving complex problems in a simple and reliable way got Barix so far that train operators, police stations and even governments rely on its technology.
2011 - IPAMs
Barix now supplies other manufacturers with ready-made parts, which cut their development cost. This makes it possible to add Barix quality audio transmission quickly into any product. Multiple companies rised their business out of the desicion to make the IPAM available for others.
2012 - Best product in audio
Radio World honors the Barix Exstreamer as the most distruptive and valueable product for the IP audio transition in the market.
2017 - Buy Back
Barix, formerly owned by multiple investors is fully bought back by its founder Johannes Rietschel. A new erea of innovation starts.
Late 2018 - Reto Brader as CEO
As a successful sales manager for the past years at Barix, Reto Brader is announced as the new CEO of Barix.
