Easily create a background music system with a simple and solid device.

The Barix RetailPlayer is the best valued platform for multi-channel streaming of background music. It is a rock solid metal device that needs little maintenance and can be installed by almost anyone. The online management allows for convenient control of the playout and the new advanced update mechanism secures fail-safe firmware updates. Its portal runs in the cloud which provides the configuration and management for all players at once (it can also be installed at specific premises).

Other features include: remotely downloadable failover content and the option for users to change the volume and channel, if configured. Thanks to its openness, the RetailPlayer integrates existing services neatly. The owner is free to chose the most competitive streaming server. Or with the Instreamer ICE as a source, up to 100 play-out devices can be served without any subscription.

The RetailPlayer streaming device can be configured completely online, includinge the failover playlist. You only need to add a streaming service of your choise and get a complete background music system which can be managed online. If you create a stream by using an Instreamer ICE and streamit directly to the RetailPlayer, the background music runs on a one dollar monthly cost. This background music device is a perfect replacement for the Exstreamer or Lisa devices.
