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 audio formats. Streaming Client 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 streaming priority port setting for emergency calls and the option to change the decoding speed for different locations synchronization. Barix realtime transport protocol (BRTP) enables the player 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 or Volume Source Control panel (VSC), which makes the application easy to use for retail outlets, bars and restaurants.
