Multiplying digital signage
Users of Barix’ Audio Signage platform will now be able to deliver multichannel audio tracks for digital signage to mobile phones as a result of the latest firmware update. The firmware update will run on a standard Barix Exstreamer Store & Play and is available for download for free from the manufacturer’s website.
The updated Audio Signage solution is stated to work for any location where digital signage needs the additional boost of streamed audio. ‘Consider the case of a museum with three digital signage displays running, each with a unique audio track that is transmitted via Wi-Fi to mobile phone users,’ says Barix’ Reto Brader. ‘The museum previously would have to buy and use a Linux PC to enable the delivery of channel information to the mobile app, in order to give access to all three audio streams via Wi-Fi. Now, all they need is an Exstreamer Store & Play loaded with the new, free firmware.’
