The Barix IPAM 200 is a versatile network audio decoder module that
plays MP3 or WMA (soon also G.711 & PCM) audio files and playlists
from USB memory, PC or web server (http) or streams from sources
like Shoutcast, Icecast (Internet radio) or RTP servers.

Common Applications:
- Playing audio from PC, jukebox applications, flash memory
- Multiroom or multizone distributed audio systems
- Commercial audio streaming applications (airports, hotels, etc.)
- Realtime audio bridging over IP (when used with the Instreamer)
- Paging and announcement applications
- Instore audio distribution (realtime) for retail, restaurants, franchises

Installation and configuration:
Installing a device containing the Barix IPAM 200 is fast and simple: After power-up the module gets either an IP address automatically
(BootP or DHCP) or finds a free one using the IPzator feature. The unique SonicIP feature then announces the IP address over the audio outputs ! The module is easily configured and controlled by a standard web browser.

Standard and Streaming Client Firmware:
Standard firmware for jukebox and multizone applications, as well as the streaming client firmware for commercial streaming applications
with WMA and MP3 support, automatic failover (up to 3 URL’s / playing from USB memory) and monitoring capabilities are supported by the module.

Programmable ABCL Firmware:
A fully programmable ABCL firmware version is available on request. ABCL stands for Audio Barix Control Language and is a simple to use
yet powerful Basic dialect.

Application development and integration:
The Barix IPAM 200 supports various control and communication modes. Software developers can easily write audio applications using one of the openly documented Ethernet (cgi,TCP, UDP) or serial interfaces (API).

Hardware integration and evaluation:
For hardware integration a technical document with schematic, pin-out and suggestions for the layout of a custom carrier PCB is available. For evaluation purposes Barix recommends the Barix Exstreamer 100.
