Barix Ethernet Powered IP Speaker Device Gets European Debut at ISE
Posted on Wednesday, December 15, 2010


Exstreamer P5 connects traditional speakers to IP Audio and SIP phone systems; design enables
operation in high-temperature environments
ZURICH, SWITZERLAND, December 15, 2010 — Barix AG comes to ISE 2011
(February 1-3, RAI Exhibition Centre, Amsterdam, Booth #2A71) with a new IP Audio
innovation that gives systems integrators and end users the freedom of choice to turn nearly
any 8-ohm speaker into an IP speaker solution.
At ISE, Barix will show the Exstreamer P5 amplified IP decoder in Europe for the first time. The
Exstreamer P5 is an all-in-one solution for high-fidelity Audio over IP distribution, supporting
universal IP standards including TCP/IP, RTP, SIP, Multicast and Ethersound. The amplified device
can directly connect 8-ohm speakers to an IP or Ethersound network, effectively extending the
popular Barix Exstreamer product range into new environments for end users and systems
“The Exstreamer P5 gives integrators a way to install ‘IP Speakers’ without limiting their
architectural and environmental options — including retrofits for legacy systems,” said Johannes
G. Rietschel, CEO and Founder of Barix AG. “For general applications, the biggest benefits are
low-cost and flexibility. You can IP-enable almost any speaker with this device, and establish
addressability and monitoring down to the individual speaker in larger installations.”
The Exstreamer P5 operates reliably in high-temperature environments and enables zoning
applications for multi-speaker systems, also allowing individual local/remote channel selection
and volume control. These features, along with exceptional, hi-fi audio quality and Power-over-
Ethernet (PoE) capability to simplify deployments, make the Exstreamer P5 the perfect choice
for overhead/ceiling speaker systems.
