The Swiss company Barix releases Exstreamer M400 IP audio decoder

Barix has recently launch the Exstreamer M400 IP audio decoder. The Exstreamer audio over IP family have been mainstays of radio broadcasters’ technical infrastructures for applications ranging from studio-to-transmitter (STL) and studio-to-studio (SSL) links to remote contribution from the field.

Linux-based IPAM 400 audio module from Barix powers the Exstreamer M400. It features significantly higher processing power than earlier Exstreamer models and a more programmable, software-driven architecture that enables easier expansion, rapid prototyping, and greater customization, the company assures.

The Exstreamer M400 features stereo, line-level, analog audio output with RCA-type connections and can decode streams in MP3, AAC-HE, FLAC, PCM, Opus, and Ogg Vorbis formats. The Exstreamer M400 incorporates the full AES67 interoperability guidelines including RTP audio delivery, multicast addressing, and PTP-based synchronization with a separate master clock device. That also enables integration into AES67-based audio-over-IP networks. Supported discovery methods include SAP (Session Announcement Protocol), mDNS (multicast DNS), and RTSP, enabling the decoder to automatically identify and list available streams from Dante, Ravenna, and other audio over IP solutions that use these protocols.

Expanded support for IT security standards includes HTTPS support for audio streams and the web-based management interface, plus encrypted SIP communication links using TLS and SRTP.
