Barix unveils next-gen Exstreamer

Barix has unveiled the Exstreamer M400, the first model in a new generation of the company’s Exstreamer IP audio decoder family. The new hardware is said to offer end users and systems integrators a modern, extensible and easy-to-deploy decoder platform supporting the latest technology standards.

Powered by Barix’s Linux-based IPAM 400 audio module, the Exstreamer M400 has significantly higher processing power than previous Exstreamer models and a more programmable, software-driven architecture for easier expansion, rapid prototyping and customisation. It comes with an increased buffer size and advanced buffer management technology for networking performance disruptions. Expanded support for IT security standards includes HTTPS, plus secure, encrypted SIP (voice-over-IP) communications using TLS and SRTP.

The installation of multiple Exstreamer M400 units is simplified by the devices’ System Configuration Tool. Accessible through a web browser, the dashboard enables installers to efficiently configure up to hundreds of Exstreamer M400 devices at once. It can be used to assign devices to grouped zones and specify up to five prioritised source streams for each unit. Settings can be copied from one Exstreamer M400 to others simultaneously to speed up multi-unit configuration.

The Exstreamer M400 also features stereo, line-level, analogue audio output with RCA-type connections and can decode streams in MP3, AAC-HE, FLAC, PCM, Opus and Ogg Vorbis formats, as well as supporting SIP and secure SIP in peer-to-peer and server modes. Other new features relative to earlier Exstreamer models include IPV6 support, internal audio file storage with externally triggered playback and support for Singlewire Software’s InformaCast and Syn-Apps emergency notification platforms with automatic endpoint registration.

The Exstreamer M400 will initially target IP audio, including background music, paging, SIP/VoIP integration and emergency notifications. Direct support for Barix’s IC Paging and Simple Paging solutions, scheduled for release later in the year, will allow Exstreamer M400s to be easily added as endpoints. The device will also be expanded with robust functionality for radio broadcasters in future firmware updates, such as AES67 support for high-quality audio transport between facilities and interoperability with Dante-based devices.
