New Streamer boxes decode and encode digital audio


Stream box from 22HBG
The Internet has become a highly efficient means to send and deliver audio streams, but users still need hardware on each end of a connection. Consumers can use their computers, but when audio is needed in a commercial environment, a dedicated device can be a better choice.

The Italian company 22HBG has developed a pair of new boxes called Stream to quickly and easily encode and decode all of your digital audio. The Stream decoder will play custom content based on predefined channels from a selected audio content provider.

An internal web server allows users to set up and manage streaming parameters, I/O configurations, network parameters and audio settings. The device can be used in a retail setting or other environment where music or verbal announcements are played.

If the network-based source goes offline, the device has a fallback system that will launch a favorite playlist from internal storage or from a removable USB device.

The Stream decoder and encoder cost less than $300 each. For more details, check the 22HBG website.
