Barix Launches the Exstreamer MR400 to Bring Conventional Paging Systems to the IP World

Barix launched the Exstreamer MR400, which acts as a bridge between IP-based technologies and conventional paging systems, speakers or amplifers. The Exstreamer MR400 also represents the latest Dante-enabled Barix device, offering three distinct modes for interoperability with Dante networks.

Building on the features of the Barix Exstreamer M400 and on Barix’s programmable IPAC firmware, the MR400 hardware device claims to strengthen its LAN/WAN network interface capabilities. It includes a relay output as well as a 1-Watt line/speaker output for 8-ohm systems, which is activated via audio presence or REST API. The relay can control auxiliary devices and activate amplifiers based on audio presence or through a simple REST API, and the device architecture includes five priority stream layers for audio management. The MR400 also retains the advanced buffering technology, internal audio file storage and externally triggered playback of the Exstreamer M400.

The latest Dante-capable device from Barix, the MR400 offers three distinct modes: Dante as a source, for streaming Dante audio to an analog input; Dante forwarding, which streams the main audio output into a Dante system, and Dante as an input to feed a SIP client. Beyond SIP and IP paging/notification systems, the MR400 integrates with InformaCast and other mass emergency notification systems, so it can be used for emergency-triggered message playout in safety and security installations.
