Barix updates Simple Paging for InfoComm 2015

Barix is to introduce the next-generation of its Simple Paging system for fixed and mobile paging over the IP network at InfoComm 2015.

At its core, Simple Paging reproduces live announcements from a desk or on the move (via a Barix Simple Paging app), giving end users an intelligible and flexible paging and communications tool.

At InfoComm, Barix will demonstrate integration with emergency notification and background audio systems, which helps to meet the requests from systems integrators who want to marry multiple IP applications over a common networked platform.

In addition to configurable emergency notification and background music sockets, a pre-gong chime has been added to master paging devices (such as the Barix Annuncicom PS1 or PS16). This feature helps to capture audience attention prior to an important page or security announcement.

The all-in-one Simple Paging system offers deployment for new and existing buildings, eliminating complex setup processes traditionally associated with IP systems. Multiple paging groups can be set up in as little as 10 minutes, with no need for in-depth IT knowledge; tags are easily associated with paging zones to establish groups. High-quality IP voice paging announcements can be made from paging stations, tablets and smartphones without further configuration once power, the network and loudspeakers are connected.

A typical Simple Paging solution features a Barix Annuncicom PS16 master paging station and Barix Exstreamer IP decoders at end points, along with the Barix Simple Paging mobile app.
