Barix, an IP audio and control specialist, has debuted the Annuncicom 200-Rava, a bidirectional IP audio interface for door stations that allows push-to-talk (PTT) intercom with Crestron Rava-enabled touch screens. The Annuncicom joins an elite list of Crestron Connecteddevices embedded with Crestron control intelligence to enable native communication and seamless operation with Crestron control technologies.

The Barix Annuncicom 200-Rava device is built specifically for residential, office and small business, and includes specialised SIP firmware to simplify integration of Rava-enabled touch screens with analogue devices, such as intercom panels. The device also includes built-in amplification, reducing infrastructure at installation points and minimising equipment costs.

Crestron Rava touch screens leverage Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) to permit voice intercom, telephone and paging (point-to-point and group) among other applications. The device establishes compatibility between Rava-enabled touch screens and door stations without a central server. This allows customers to continue to use existing devices when upgrading to Rava touch screens, providing seamless IP to analogue integration.

Systems integrators, meanwhile, eliminate the time and labour associated with configuring servers to enable SIP compatibility between Rava touch screens and connected devices. Barix firmware allows these devices to discover each other on the network, making the Annuncicom 200-Rava the first Crestron-approved solution to offer such seamless peer-to-peer device connectivity. The result is a reliable, SIP-compatible solution that effectively bridges analogue and digital components within Rava environments.

The bidirectional, push-to-talk functionality offers an additional benefit in residential and commercial neighbourhoods where street noise adversely affects door station communication. This eliminates exterior noise when a homeowner or business employee is talking to an outside target.
