Audio over IP for broadcast
Extreamer 1000: The Barix Exstreamer 1000 is a professional audio-over-IP device designed specifically for radio broadcasters. The one-half 1RUunti combines Barix Instreamer and Exstreamer functionality in one device. It is also the first Barix Instreamer or Exstreamer device to include contact closures to trigger and control local announcements. Eight contact closures transport data information with the audio to trigger and control local announcements, such as station identification, an EAS signal, or even local studio cut-ins to a national feed. The addition of contact closures eliminates the need to use additional automation equipment to trigger local inserts. Other features include balanced I/Os, a high-quality signal converter (analog to digital and vice versa) with a significantly higher decibel level to reduce noise and improve audio quality, and a professional AES3 interface to capture a digital signal at the source and maintain it throughout the chain.

Features: frequency agile RF input, AM and sync AM noise measurements, variable BW digital IF filtering, FM demodulation with 100dB 75µs [microsecond] SNR, variable BW composite filtering, stereo demodulation with 100dB L/R separation, full metering of analog peak and RMS values, RDS injection/phase and full data decoding, two SCA decoders, RJ-45 Ethernet Interface with remote PC software.
Podcasting sound effects library
Podcaster 2: Podcaster 2 is a high definition MP3 sound effects library specifically designed for podcasting and virtual media. Blastwave FX provides podcasters and virtual media producers with a complete collection of music, sound effects and production elements in this collection of 500 sounds. Every sound was fully produced at 24/96 to ensure the highest quality for today's production needs, then delivered as stereo MP3 files, making audio productions easy to produce and manage.
Blue Sky International
SAT 8: Blue Sky's SAT 8 is a three-way, tri-amplified, 300W, compact mid-field monitor featuring an 8" high excursion hemispherical woofer, a low distortion 4" hemispherical midrange driver, and a 1" dual ring radiator tweeter with integral waveguide. To reduce destructive cabinet diffraction reflections, Blue Sky has developed and incorporated into the baffle, the proprietary Multi-Aperture Acoustic Diffraction Absorber, which helps to maintain smooth on and off axis frequency response throughout the critical MF and HF frequency range, without the need for a large wave-guide or horn. The rear panel also has controls for full space (placement in a room) or half space (mounted in a baffle wall) operation, along with individual HF, MF and LF level trims, as well as controls for variable gain settings.
