WiFi Broadcaster

Contents:

WiFi MP3/Ogg Vorbis Broadcaster is the natural evolution of the previously board known as Ethernet MP3/Ogg Vorbis Broadcaster. Both boards are two embedded streaming media server systems used to transmit or receive an audio stream over Internet connection or in a LAN network. The boards have a compact size, the dimensions are only 60x55mm and their height is less than 20mm. The broadcaster boards can be used as modules or inserted into an aluminum box with two plastic covers.

The Broadcaster board is compatible with many standard streaming media protocols, like IceCast or SHOUTCast. For this reason the stream can be create from two or more Broadcaster boards or from a computer to other boards or viceversa. The board has been well tested in unicast or broadcast streaming with VLC Media Player and some others player, but it is also compatible with the major web radios that transmit in MP3 or Ogg Vorbis format.

 

The WiFi version of Broadcaster board has an integrated WiFi module instead of Ethernet connector. The WiFi module allows broadcasting audio even where is not present a wired LAN.
