The International Piano Festival is a series of weekly piano concerts taking place from March 3 through April 7, 2012 at the historic Teatro Miela in Trieste, Italy. Barix will provide a complete audio over IP solution to support the live audio streams, which will be accessible via the festival website. The International Piano Festival audio feeds will originate from a front of house mixer in the theater. A Barix Exstreamer 1000 professional audio over IP device will receive a balanced stereo signal from a mixer output, and encode the audio for distribution over a high-speed broadband connection. Barix Instreamer firmware will encode the analog audio signals in the MPEG1 Layer III 48Khz format — the highest bit rate allowed for maximum audio quality. The broadband connection will transport the digital encoded signals to a remote Icecast server, which enables the live stream over fixed and mobile devices.
