Streaming Client


Streaming Client - Live audio and advertisement simply anywhere, anytime

 

The Streaming Client Firmware turns Barix Exstreamer devices into professional network audio players, supporting MP3, A/u-Law, PCM and other formats. The Streaming Client software ensures a wide range of background music can be provided by three failover audio sources, such as two url addresses for streaming audio and locally via USB storage. The firmware can easily be integrated into an existing infrastructure with a command or web interface. Several tools are built in, including priority port setting for emergency calls; and changing the decoding speed for different locations. Barix realtime transport protocol (BARP) enables the receiver device to open a pull session over secured networks, and maintain a continuous audio stream to locations without a fixed IP address. Channel switching can be done via a IR remote control device, which makes the application easy to use for retail outlets, bars and restaurants.
