Barix Unveils SIP Audio Endpoint, Will Demo at ISE 2020

barix SIP audioBarix unveiled its new SIP Audio Endpoint, which enables integrators to extend SIP-based VoIP (Voice over IP) telephone systems with functionality including intercom, paging, music-on-hold and other audio applications. Barix will demonstrate the new device in stand 8-K275 in Amsterdam at ISE 2020 in Feb. Example use cases include the ability to make announcements through a particular loudspeaker by dialing it from a SIP phone or having an analog talk station automatically dial a specific VoIP extension. The new SIP Audio Endpoint builds on this tradition by offering further codec support and expanded functionality on a modern hardware foundation.

The SIP Audio Endpoint supports a broad range of audio codecs, including Opus, G.711, G.722 and GSM. Contact closures on the device allow triggering from physical interfaces such as call buttons, while features such as DTMF tone dialing support maximize integration possibilities. The SIP Audio Endpoint is also compatible with Singlewire Software’s InformaCast and Syn-Apps’ Revolution platforms, enabling the devices to be used as endpoints with these enterprise-class mass notification solutions.

The SIP Audio Endpoint family is powered by Barix’s IPAM 400, the company’s latest-generation IP Audio Module. The first model in the new series, the mono, bi-directional MA400 SIP Audio Endpoint, features a microphone or line-level analog audio input and 5-watt (8-ohm) or line-level analog output.
