Take a look at the primary commercial IP audio applications, typical IP audio device entities and how IP sound systems are employed…

IP Tannoy | IP PA | IP Paging

Plug in an IP speaker, plug in an IP microphone. Use your browser to configure…. Bingo, you just created a simple IP Public Address (IP PA) solution. Unshackled from dedicated cabling, with audio distribution via the LAN, WAN, VPN and Internet, IP PA can scale effortlessly. IP PA ‘gateways’ can be used to enable IP PA announcement capability from a smart phone app or from SIP IP phones.

IP Background Music IP BGM

IP Background Music (IP BGM)

IP Background Music (IP BGM) leverages IP communications and IP network infrastructures. IP BGM is widely used across all commercial industry sectors to store, control, route and play-out music and radio. Legacy audio play-out devices (CD player or Radio Tuner) can be connected through an IP Audio Encoder. Dedicated IP audio music/radio players allow for simple storage and control of music libraries and playlists. Internet and cloud based streaming BGM services further elevate capability offering ‘curated’ IP BGM offering tailored play-out and branding across industry sectors.

SIP (VoIP IP Telephony)

Many businesses now use VoIP IP Telephony underpinned by Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) to support their telephony. IP Audio devices and entities can integrate directly with on-premise or hosted SIP based IP telephony services (to enable Paging, Tannoy, PA announcements from telephones). SIP VoIP telephony gateways also exist to connect and integrate with traditional analogue audio systems.

IP Intercom System

IP Intercom

Intercom applications have been transformed by IP audio. Scalability and flexibility through improved installation deployment, audio routing & zoning have enabled enhanced intercom capability. Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) is a generic standard that is used by most IP telephony systems to establish and control telephone calls. Most IP intercom systems use SIP similarly, enabling integration with customer telephony / telephones.

CCTV 'Talk Back'

IP audio can be used to deliver targeted audio to security locations including CCTV points and coverage areas for ‘talkback’ applications. Local or remote monitoring stations can target live announcements or recorded audio messages to CCTV points individually, as groups or all points.

IP Lock down System

IP 'Lockdown'

Flexible and scalable mass notification audio applications can be created using IP audio. Lock Down and similar security announcements can be stored and triggered by physical buttons, switches and relays an/or via secure browser GUI buttons providing improved trigger point flexibility.

Time based scheduling of audio message playback is also possible for any routine security and informational announcements.
