Barix Launches New Online Radio Station for Public

ZURICH, SWITZERLAND--Barix AG announces the launch of Barix Radio, the company’s fully-licensed, unique radio station now streaming on a 24/7 basis at http://www.barix.com/radio.m3u. The station is programmed for Barix by DMD2, a Swiss content provider and Barix business partner, using licensed content.

Barix Radio features an eclectic mix of music and no advertisements to entertain audiences at home, in the office or on the move. The station serves as an ideal test channel for Audio over IP applications, providing new Barix customers in entertainment, broadcast, retail or other markets with a continuous stream to test the delivery of live audio over the internet or an autonomous network. Future shipments of Barix Exstreamer IP decoders will include a preconfigured Barix Radio URL that will automatically begin streaming once connected to the internet.

The station is hosted by StreamGuys, a streaming media provider and content delivery network that often partners with Barix for distribution of radio programs, in-store media and other audio streaming applications. Barix Radio will also add an aacPlus stream in the future for low bandwidth testing.

“We sell IP Audio equipment to broadcasters and for content distribution globally, praising the advantages of the technology. It's only natural that we have our own radio station,” said Johannes Rietschel, CEO and founder of Barix AG. “We realize it's impossible to program a mix that suits the musical tastes of every listener, so we tried to capture the ‘Barix’ taste and provide a unique station that can be used both for entertainment and business purposes.”
