The Exstreamer 500 is a professional IP Audio encoder/decoder that provides balanced analog audio interfaces (stereo input and stereo output) and contact closures. A USB flash interface allows use of external memory to store audio files. The device's low-power, reliable architecture makes the device an ideal choice for broadcast applications such as STL, confidence monitoring, remote contribution and silence detection, as professional audio endpoints (with IP or Ethersound protocol), and for generic low-latency audio streaming and routing applications. 



  • Audio stereo codec (encoder/decoder) for MPEG1&2 Layer3 (MP3), PCM linear and alaw, u-law, 8-48k sample rate support. AAC+, WMA, Ogg Vorbis formats are not supported.
  • Unlike the other Extreamer family products, the Extreamer 500 / 1000 can both encode and decode audio streams.
  • 10/100 Mbit Ethernet interface
  • MP3/PCM/Ethersound support
  • USB 1.1 interface for flash memory (FAT16/32 file system support)
  • Wide range power supply input with low power consumption
  • Two independent serial ports (RS-232 and RS-485)
  • IR decoding capability with optional serial port IR receiver
  • Four contact closure inputs and four relay outputs
