VBAN for Broadcast Using Barix Exstreamer?

Post by radiobob »

We are using Voicemeeter and Receptor for live baseball broadcasts with high quality and minimal latency using a 5 GHz WiFi bridge between the stadium and the studio. The system has worked brilliantly.

Our station also uses standalone Barix 100 boxes for studio-to-transmitter link via a separate 5 GHz link using PCM audio via RTP.

I happen to have a spare Barix receiver (Exstreamer; the transmitter is the Instreamer...go figure!). The Barix units are capable of handling raw UDP, so I was wondering...has anyone had tried using VoiceMeeter and VBAN to stream directly to a self-contained device such as this?

Thank you for the reply!

So far I have been unable to get the Barix Exstreamer and VoiceMeeter to connect, but I am nonetheless exceptionally pleased with how the VoiceMeeter/Receptor combo works for our live sports broadcasts!
