The Netherlands - At the upcoming ISE 2018 conference in Amsterdam, Audio over IP pioneer Barix will introduce the third generation of AudioPoint, the company’s audio signage platform that brings digital signage and TV content together with today’s BYOD trends. AudioPoint helps end users deliver audio associated with video content to mobile devices over a local Wi-Fi connection, driving a more intimate connection with consumers and lending a voice to the screen.
AudioPoint 3.0 increases the value proposition for systems integrators and end users with an all-in-one integrated solution that removes the need for an external channel server. AudioPoint 3.0 is based on a new hardware platform, engineered by Barix, that builds the channel server into the Barix Audio Signage Encoder to significantly reduce cost and integration time. The encoder supports both single- and multi-channel audio streaming for up to 250 simultaneous users.
Enhanced networking intelligence under the hood also ensures that AudioPoint 3.0 works with most professional and off-the-shelf routers to immediately enable Wi-Fi streaming. As previous generations required a specific type of router, this flexibility in router choice removes testing and configuration headaches in advance of deployments; and quickly sets end users on the path toward strengthening customer and audience engagement.
“Barix was at the forefront of the BYOD trend with AudioPoint upon its introduction five years ago,” said Reto Brader, vice president of sales and marketing, Barix. “The low price of Barix AudioPoint 3.0, combined with the fact that users bring their own receiver devices, has opened new markets for this solution. Even smaller venues and facilities can now provide targeted personal audio streams to end users. Lower delay means support for new applications, such as hearing-impaired audiences at live events including live corporate presentations, local stage performances, worship services, promotional vehicles, and entertainment experiences.”
