Barix New Instreamer

MP3 IP Audio Encoder

Barix New Instreamer

The Instreamer Standard Firmware makes the streaming of audio over IP networks smooth and easy. The software converts any audio signal into G.711, PCM or high-quality MP3 streams and can send the stream to up to 32 different destinations across the LAN or over the internet. Supporting peer-to-peer connections with other Barix devices, the software can also be used for integration into wide audio infrastructures with Shoutcast or Icecast servers. Simple web and command interfaces makes the firmware configurable and the audio stream can be adjusted to the network bandwidth, set to send on CTS, on level or send always. Two physical ports are available (Ethernet/Serial), and with the BRTP protocol the application can communicate with other Barix devices on secured networks. Together with the Instreamer device, the firmware is an easy-to-install and cost-effective solution for professional audio streaming.

  • Support as codec: MP3 (VBR/CBR), PCM and G.711
  • Supported stream connections: HTTP, RTP, SIP, Raw UDP, Raw TCP, Icecast and Icecast ID3 source, Shoutcast source
  • Supports Serial Port relaying (Serial gateway over Network)
