The Instreamer ICE from Barix has two uses: on the one hand, it is an audio network encoder which first converts audio into a data format, then streams the data to remote receivers over the network; on the other hand, it serves as an Icecast server that provides access to streams for multiple listeners/clients. The Instreamer ICE is equipped with a standard audio interface (RCA /cinch) and a variety of network standard protocols, including the HTTP audio streaming protocol supported by most media players. It supports MP3 and AAC+ encoding formats, selectable in the setup, and features a built-in server of the popular Icecast audio distribution.
