Barix AG, provider of IP-based audio, Intercom and monitoring, has announced it is expanding their Annuncicom IP range of products. The company showed prototypes of the new Annuncicom 1000 model at Infocomm in June. The Annuncicom 1000 is designed for integration into complex, professional intercom and paging environments. According to the company, "It retains Barix’s philosophy of providing inexpensive, low-power devices that are scalable to the growth of the operation; reliability through a PC-FREE design with no moving parts; and a flexible platform for integration into virtually any operation requiring audio transport and delivery."
In addition, Barix has announced the availability of SIP compatible Annuncicom firmware, integrating high quality Audio over IP applications with standard VoIP systems. The Annuncicom 1000 is a premium, professional grade device that combines intercom, paging and IP-based audio conversion for PA system playback into a half-width 19-inch, rack mountable box. With eight supervised contact closure inputs for audio control, eight relay outputs for audio routing or control, and a redundant power supply input suitable for both 24 and 48 volt based systems,, the Annuncicom 1000 marks a major step forward for Barix in the intercom market. The Annuncicom 1000 is ideal for military, transportation, building security, recreational, and alarming applications that are looking for a flexible, scalable and cost-effective audio distribution, paging and intercom solution.
“The Annuncicom 1000 is designed to be used in use in reliable, professional Intercom and PA systems.” said Johannes G. Rietschel, CEO and Founder of Barix AG. “The traditional Annuncicom 100 is still an excellent solution for standard applications. The Annuncicom 1000 is an excellent choice if telecom power supplies (-48V), balanced inputs and outputs, or several control inputs and outputs are needed to switch speaker circuits, for example. The Annuncicom 1000 offers eight relays for operation within a more complex system architecture. This is ideal for routing voice and contact closures to the amplifiers of large scale PA systems featuring multiple sets of speakers, allowing the operator to choose the speaker set or sets that will playback live or recorded voice announcements.
