Barix teams with Crestron for IP intercom solution20 October 2008
The result of the collaboration is custom Audio over IP intercom solution Annuncicom 100-CS. Barix developed the new product to operate seamlessly within residential Crestron systems having joined the company’s Integrated Partner Program earlier this year.
The Annuncicom 100-CS features special firmware to communicate with software in Crestron control systems for residential analogue audio and digital IP intercom applications, enabling point-to-point distribution of full-duplex audio between devices. Barix’s Audio over IP technology enables Crestron dealers to integrate new digital IP intercom solutions within the framework of existing analogue infrastructures.
The new solution can communicate with specific products in Crestron AV distribution systems, including certain Crestron Isys Wall Mount Touchpanels, and Crestron intercom distribution switchers and interface solutions.
"Barix is pleased to introduce its flexible Annuncicom IP intercom platform into the greater Crestron control environment," commented Johannes G. Rietschel (pictured), CEO and founder of Barix AG. "The Annuncicom 100-CS is a perfect companion for Crestron’s robust control platform within residential environments to create a centralised, IP-based security and communication system. We are pleased to announce the availability of the Annuncicom 100-CS within the Crestron residential product portfolio and look forward to future collaborations with Crestron in the IP audio and control markets."
