Zurich, Switzerland - Sep 15, 2006 - In an effort to remain on the air during emergency situations, Clear Channel Satellite Services has purchased Barix's Instreamer, Exstreamer and Barionet products to connect to its radio towers in the southern United States. Launched at the beginning of the 2006 hurricane season, the service allows Clear Channel stations in this region to remain on the air in the event of extreme weather or other disasters, and provide important information to the public.

The Clear Channel Satellite Services facility, headquartered in Englewood, CO, streams audio nonstop every day directly to the radio towers. The Instreamer and Exstreamer equipment encode and decode audio in preparation for broadcast if studios experience power outages. The Barionets, installed with Exstreamers at each radio tower site, are used to activate and automatically switch the Exstreamer back-up audio feed for transmission over the air. The Barionet devices are controlled from Englewood through an IP connection established via the satellite.
