Madison, WI (PRWEB) May 04, 2011
Singlewire Software, LLC, (http://www.singlewire.com), developer of innovative voice applications centered around secure, fast, and reliable mass notification, today announced integration with Barix (http://www.barix.com), developer of IP-based audio, control, monitoring and automation devices, for providing InformaCast-compliant notification with Exstreamer IP audio decoders and Barionet contact closure interfaces.
Singlewire InformaCast is a full-featured, network-based mass notification, emergency communication, and overhead paging system that allows users to simultaneously send an audio and/or text message to a variety of endpoints including IP speakers, Cisco IP phones, overhead paging systems, computer desktops, digital signage, SMS text, social media sites, and more. InformaCast can also be used to send bell tones for passing bells in K-12 schools and shift changes in manufacturing environments.
Barix Exstreamer and Barionet devices allow integration and alarm triggers to and from real-world interfaces such as loudspeakers, PA systems, relays, horns, contact closures, push buttons, and displays. The devices are open-standards-compliant, intelligent IP I/O controllers that directly interface to common electrical interfaces, providing options for two-way audio support and tighter integration to loudspeakers.
“Barix has successfully performed proof-of-concept tests in conjunction with Singlewire in advance of bringing the full solution to market,” said Johannes G. Rietschel, CEO and Founder of Barix AG. “By supporting InformaCast solutions, Barix can further diversify its IP paging and public address systems, and deliver a more comprehensive solution to the professional security industry — while also bringing enhanced functionality to the InformaCast platform.”
“Barix has a great reputation in the industry for manufacturing high-quality products and providing scalable solutions to their customers,” said Ken Bywaters, executive vice president of product development at Singlewire. “By making these systems compliant with Singlewire InformaCast, Barix customers will gain the value of industry-leading software tools to manage and deliver a host of next-generation notification solutions.”
Barix AG, headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland, specializes in the research and development of IP- based communication and control technology, providing product solutions for audio distribution, audio monitoring, communication, security, and automation.
The InformaCast platform for mass notification and emergency communication was developed in the weeks following the 9/ 11 attacks to evacuate federal buildings within 15 minutes. Over 3,000 organizations in 45 countries have implemented InformaCast as their notification and overhead paging system. It can be purchased through registered partners of Singlewire.
