Barix To Demonstartye New Annuncicom Audio Over IP device

News Image
Barix comes to ISE 2023 with a new Annuncicom Audio over IP device developed for networked intercom and paging applications with elevated security standards.

Part of the company's growing family of IPAC IP audio products, the Annuncicom MPI400 provides a versatile and futureproof hardware and software platform that meets modern IT security requirements, is compatible with Microsoft Teams, and is adaptable to individual customer needs across a variety of audio environments.

The Annuncicom MPI400 can serve as a robust IP intercom and paging end point or as a gateway between IP and legacy systems, microphone/speakers or an amplifier. It is deployable within an InfomaCast or Syn-Apps architecture for emergency mass notification systems, and meets the latest requirements for secure SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) integration with VoIP telephone systems. These features make the Annuncicom MPI400 ideal for secure communications within schools, factories, transportation centers and corporate office buildings.

The Annuncicom MPI400 is also the first Barix Annuncicom device to support the OPUS codec, offering higher quality audio for SIP voice transmission as well as background music streams. With five priority settings, customers can configure the device to switch between audio sources when supporting multiple applications. That not only enhances versatility for users but reduces equipment costs by removing the need for an audio matrix switcher.

The interoperability spirit expands into the Microsoft Teams universe, which Barix will announce in greater detail closer to ISE. However, the Annuncicom MPI400 can support bidirectional calls and trigger relays through Teams for door or siren activations, for example.

The PoE-powered Annuncicom MPI400 feature set also includes contact closure inputs, relay outputs, and line and mic/speaker support. Its two dry contact closure inputs are expandable to USB to establish a connection or select a delivery target, while low voltage replay outputs can activate amplifiers when SIP calls are received. These benefits also make the device ideal for door intercom stations and help points, for example. With two microphone inputs and IP connectivity to speaker systems, the Annuncicom MPI400 is also suitable for everyday paging needs in schools and retail environments, as well as IP audio surveillance in very sensitive environments including casinos.
