Barix showcases ISC West attendees “Simple Paging,” its groundbreaking new out-of-the-box solution for marrying fixed and mobile paging over the IP network. Simple Paging reproduces live announcements from a desk or on the move with absolute clarity, giving security professionals an intelligible and flexible emergency response tool in their pockets courtesy of a free Barix mobile app.
The all-in-one solution offers simple 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.
Barix demonstrates how end users and integrators can quickly launch and use the complete solution at ISC West, taking place April 2-4 at the Sands Convention Center in Las Vegas (Booth 31099). The demonstration showcases how visitors can make live, clear voice announcements from a smartphone using the free Simple Paging mobile app, available for download in App Stores.
“Audio over IP has entered the mainstream, and Barix delivers solutions that end users and integrators can launch, use and scale without difficulty,” said Ronni Guggenheim, CEO, Barix. “For security professionals, the ease of use and increased mobility from our free Simple Paging app greatly improves efficiency. Simple Paging gives security professionals a way to make on-the-spot public address announcements with up-to-the-minute information, along with flexible targeting to deliver the right messages to the right places. This on-location capability empowers security professionals, allowing them to be far more effective.”
Simple Paging offers a cost-effective solution to specify IP-based paging into new builds, or replace failing legacy solutions. A single deployment brings legacy PA systems into the digital age, while protecting existing technology investments and adding new capabilities. In addition to mobile integration, flexible targeting allows security professionals to direct announcements to specific devices, zones and buildings. Furthermore, Simple Paging connects disparate PA systems on large campuses onto a single network to ensure a unified message.
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. Barix’s trademark high audio quality ensures clear messaging across the network regardless of the speaker’s location.
