News Image
A series of new high-end Audio over IP (AoIP) codecs from industry experts Barix and digigram is to make its public debut at NAB 2019 in Las Vegas, 08-11 April.

The new Barix XLINK by digigram series will be on display in the Barix booth (C1139) during the show.

Barix and digigram have worked together on occasional projects in the past, and are expanding their collaboration with the new Barix XLINK by digigram series.
 
"Broadcasters love the reliability and cost-effectiveness of Barix products, which are used by thousands of customers every day," said Reto Brader, CEO, Barix. "Some of their projects, however, require codecs that offer more redundancy and advanced technical features than we have offered in the past. We are excited to cooperate with digigram to bring this new product line to the U.S. and South America, where Barix has earned a strong reputation for our knowledge of the broadcast market and for exceeding customers' support expectations. We have worked closely together to make sure that what we offer meets our standards for quality, local support and price-attractiveness. With the new line, Barix can now meet even the most demanding broadcast audio distribution requirements."
 
Barix XLINK by digigram audio codecs are designed to provide reliable, 24/7/365 delivery of high-quality audio for studio-to-transmitter link (STL), studio-to-studio link (SSL), DVB audio and Internet Radio applications. Four 1U rack-mountable configurations let broadcasters choose exactly the right model for their audio infrastructure and application requirements:
 
● The Barix XLINK ST by digigram delivers one stereo source (or two mono sources) over IP, and can be used in legacy analog, AES/EBU and all-IP (AES, Ravenna and Livewire standard mode) audio infrastructures.
● The Barix XLINK DUAL by digigram provides two codecs in one, delivering two stereo sources (or four mono sources) over IP. It can be used in analog, AES/EBU and all-IP environments.
● The Barix XLINK AES67 by digigram supports up to eight stereo inputs and outputs and is purpose-built for all-IP audio workflows.
● The Barix XLINK LE by digigram is a streamlined stereo audio IP codec that is ideal for single-protocol streaming.

All Barix XLINK  by digigram codecs feature redundant dual streaming technology, enabling reliable IP delivery over inexpensive IP connectivity. Four network ports on each unit enable full separation of IP traffic between local IP audio, dual streaming and remote management, while redundant internal power supplies ensure maximum reliability. Front-panel LEDs and VU meters allow fast and easy status monitoring, augmented by an LCD display and keypad on the ST, DUAL and AES67 configurations. The codecs' powerful hardware platform and advanced processing engine enable simultaneous multi-format encoding on all four models, plus multi-protocol streaming on all but the LE version.
 
"We are pleased to be working with Barix to bring the new family of codecs to the U.S. market," said Xavier Allanic, Regional Sales Manager EMEA/Americas, Digigram. "Our companies share the same commitment to quality and reliability, and Barix is well-positioned to provide the level of local support that broadcasters in the region require. Customers can trust Barix XLINK by digigram to deliver their audio reliably, letting them focus on what really matters: their content."
 
"We have invested heavily in developing this new product line, and Barix has all of the infrastructure required to support U.S. customers locally the way they are used to," added Jérémie Weber, CEO, Digigram. "This combination two results in a real win-win solution for both companies and for all American radio broadcasters."
