The Barix Exstreamer P5 is a member of the Barix Exstreamer product family, versatile Audio over IP codecs for use in a wide field of applications, from broadcast to instore, from distribution of music in hotels to SIP telephone paging applications. Based on reliable, embedded, low power, solid state technology, the device is ideally suited for 24/7 operations, does not need cooling or maintenance, and is not prone to usual issues caused by operating systems. The Exstreamer P5 provides amplified audio (5W RMS) directly into an 8 Ohm speaker. The device draws its power from an 802.3af Ethernet connection. A serial and IR port (on an RJ-45 connector) allows direct connection of the Barix VSC or similar in-room controls.
Various standard software packages for specific applications are available for download from the Barix website, from applications optimized for hospitality, retail and broadcast to a full featured SIP client, suitable as a paging interface. Custom software can easily be written, based on existing packages from Barix or freely in the ABCL (Basic dialect) scripting language.
