ISE 2016 PREVIEW: BARIX
Barix’s SoundScape is an ideal platform to help retail, hospitality and other businesses – and the service providers that manage playlists and audio delivery – inspire shopper emotion, enhance the on-premises atmosphere, and reflect the business’ style and brand definition. It brings together cloud-based content management, end point playout and global monitoring capabilities in a highly programmable, user-friendly package.
Barix has introduced a cost-efficient starter package, which includes licenses for the first 50 audio players, eliminates expensive annual contracts in favour of monthly credit card payments and a much faster return on investment.
The 50-player starter package allows businesses up and running at multiple locations to enhance sonic branding, with nominal fees for additional single player licenses as business needs to expand. Based on Barix’s pioneering WAN-based Audio over IP approach, the package is ideally suited to systems integrators seeking a multi-site audio distribution and management system that accelerates launch, and minimises labor and materials. SoundScape is quick to deploy thanks to its self-discovering architecture across its central management portal and remote audio players.
“SoundScape’s monthly subscription model eliminates the upfront investment, and frees service providers and end users from the shackles of expensive contracts that have long deterred businesses from turning ‘in-store radio’ into a true revenue-generating service,” said Reto Brader, vice president of sales, Barix. “Furthermore, since many retail and hospitality seek to outsource business audio delivery, service providers can position SoundScape as a managed service to their end customers. This allows systems integrators to capitalise on the growing demand for full service offerings.”
Barix will demonstrate SoundScape and its latest features at ISE 2016 in Amsterdam. Visit Barix at Stand 8-H280.
