You’ve downloaded all your favorite music, so why limit your listening pleasure to the hours you spend at your PC? Turn your PC into a music server with the Exstreamer, a network MP3 player for digital audio streaming. Using a 10/100 Mbit Ethernet connection, the Exstreamer streams MP3s from your PC, digital audio server or Internet radio station to your stereo’s powered speakers or to your network. The configurable Exstreamer can be easily controlled via a web browser interface using web-connected PCs, web pads, PDAs or simply by an IR remote control (sold separately). The Exstreamer is perfect for multiroom distributed audio systems as well as for commercial audio streaming applications since it supports various control and communication modes. Software developers can easily write audio applications using one of the well-documented Ethernet, serial or web based interfaces.
The Exstreamer is compatible with any dedicated music server that offers a standard web/http interface, or it can also be fed with a TCP data stream. You may adjust your settings for the control ports, IR source and IR gateway properties; simply define the ports on which the device will receive commands via UDP and TCP. Leaving the IP address at 0.0.0.0 and setting a valid port will broadcast the IR commands in the LAN. To direct to a specific device, just set the IP address of the device and the port. The Exstreamer can also be integrated into various control applications and home automation systems. Use the serial port on the Exstreamer to send control commands from a home automation system and other PC or embedded applications; the same control commands used on the serial port can be used as UDP or TCP commands over Ethernet.
