In-Store Music Applications
Barix offers delivery of high quality in-store audio in three ways:
• Live Streaming: deliver high-quality branded audio in real-time via the Internet to all retail locations, including the option for localized and targeted ad insertion. This can be achieved using Barix Instreamers devices as sources and then distributing via "ShoutCast" servers, "Ad Insertion" servers, or Barix RTP-Replicator devices. At the receiving end Exstreamer devices will provide the audio output.
• Periodic File Download: store audio locally at each retail location, updating the music via FTP or HTTP download and then playing back according to a schedule as desired. See FTP MP3 Player
• Offline: store the audio locally at each location, and update it manually as desired.
In-store music from Barix  enables Retailers of all sizes to easily build their brand and sales figures, whilst providing customers with a pleasant environment.
