IP Paging Gateway
Make your IP System ready for Multicast Audio
Plug and Transmit: Based on open standards, the IP-A1PG Paging Gateway plugs right into standard IP networks and can be easily integrated into your video management system (VMS) or SIP-based communication system. A single standard network cable provides both power and connectivity with your network.
Flexible Group Paging: The IP-A1PG IP Paging Gateway converts SIP/ONVIF* calls into multicast streams for delivering the group paging function also to systems that are not multicast-ready.
Furthermore, it provides a multicast-ready audio input and the possibility to send sets of HTTP commands into the network, triggered by the API or control inputs. Connect an analogue audio source as audio players for BGM or microphones and distribute this audio to various IP devices in the network simultaneously.
Easy-to-use scheduler: By accessing the web interface, endusers can create flexible time schedules according to their personal requirements. The intuitive layout and quick control leave nothing to be desired.
Office buildings with a video management system and the need to perform paging into a customized combination of rooms/zones: The IP-A1PG converts the audio calls of the VMS into multicast to address groups of loudspeakers in single rooms, entire floors or the entire building.

IP paging gateway
The IP paging gateway shall be integrable into SIP environments via the open SIP protocol (according to RFC3261) and into VMS using the ONVIF® Profile S audio backchannel. Furthermore, the gateway shall be addressable via HTTP commands, using its remote API (Application Programming Interface).
The device shall be able to convert SIP calls, ONVIF calls or analogue audio (line or mic) into multicast streaming, providing 20 slots for transmitting addresses and a line/mic switch and phantom power supply for the analogue audio input.
In addition, it shall provide the possibility to store and send up to 10 different HTTP command sets, consisting of up to 20 commands each, and to perform a system mute which disables all compatible IP audio devices in the network.
The IP paging gateway shall provide an internal storage for up to 20 audio files accepting the WAV and MP3 format. Up to 20 patterns shall be programmable for audio file activation including adjustable repeat intervals, play count setting and duration setting.
All device settings shall be executable through a browser interface and in addition, a free-of-charge setting software for adjusting the network setting of a group of IP devices simultaneously shall be available.
The IP paging gateway shall provide access to a scheduler function via web interface. The installation of a scheduler software shall not be required.
The IP paging gateway shall receive its power supply over the network connection using PoE.
4 control inputs for activation of playback patterns, system mute, command sets or line audio to multicast paging shall be accessible via removable terminal plugs. 1 control output for triggering local devices shall also be included.
