2N® Net Audio Decoder
We’re Transforming a PC Into a Central Broadcasting System
2N® NetSpeaker has become 2N® Net Audio Decoder.
The 2N® Net Audio Decoder is an IP audio system that enables acoustic communication or other audio stream to be played from a given PC in a LAN/WAN network. For audio transmission over IP all you need to do is connect a standard speaker or amplifier to the 2N® Net Audio Decoder, thus creating a virtual central broadcasting system. This allows for any audio to be played with the options to create separate zones with different communication content. A use for this solution is found, for instance, in schools, shopping centres, office buildings, at train stations, in athletic, cultural or health facilities and in many other public spaces.
The original technology did not allow us to connect PBX to the old audio system. The sound quality did not match our requirements. We sought to find out a technology that would allow us modernization and integration with the IP world.
Juan Valdivia, IT manager, Quinta Normal
We contacted ITM-Components with a brief to supply equipment that would enable us to broadcast messages and background music around the Park which was controlled from a central location. The 2N system we agreed upon has achieved exactly what we asked for and we are extremely pleased with the result. Throughout the entire project we have received excellent service from ITM-Components.
Darren Chorley, Operations Director
We were looking for IP based audio solution that would be modular, flexible and could bring us wide adjustment options. With 2N IP audio we have met all of our requirements. We were also pleased with the minimum lead time from design to startup.

2N® IP Audio Manager
Install IP audio more easily and faster
The 2N® IP Audio Manager is a software application, which runs in the background of your PC as a service. The application allows you to transform your PC into a radio exchange, which, instead of working on audio cables, utilizes an existing data network. This is especially suitable for audio distribution in large premises, amusement parks, chain stores etc.
The 2N® IP Audio Manager is a basic SW platform for most 2N IP audio products and this makes it necessary for successful functioning of these products. Its main task is to process audio sources, such as for example playlists, internet radio stations or different announcements from phones, 2N® IP Audio Console or 2N® IP Audio Virtual Sound Card user applications or from 2N® Net Mic of 2N® Net Audio Encoder audio devices.
The application creates audio streams from these sources and streams them through an IP network into different destinations. The destinations may be 2N® Net Audio Decoder or 2N® Net Audio Decoder Lite audio systems of 2N® Net Speaker loudspeakers, but also different third party devices which can reproduce audio. The software also controls priorities of the individual audio streams according to settings adjusted in the 2N® IP Audio Control Panel application. Another feature the user is sure to appreciate is the Planner function for automatic broadcasting of announcements at preset times as well as remote control of the whole system.
2N® IP Audio Console
A console for user announcements
The 2N® IP Audio Console is an application for anyone who needs a simple way to make live announcements via a microphone or for the transmission of preset files (for example, information announcements, advertising spots, musical content, gongs).
For this reason, this application is often used by hotel receptionists, building and complex administrators, teachers or head teachers, for instance. The administrator can set authorisation levels for each user - designating to which type of broadcasting and which areas the user has access. Users with the highest authorisation can select the areas to which their announcements are broadcast themselves.
2N® IP Audio Control Panel
Central administration of audio systems
The 2N® IP Audio Control Panel is an application for the administration and configuration of the entire 2N® Net Audio Decoder system. The application allows you to add individual users, create zones for 2N® Net Audio Decoder units, assemble playlists or configure internet radio. You can also create sessions that designate what audio content will be broadcast to a given zone or 2N® Net Audio Decoder unit.
The 2N® IP Audio Control Panel application also includes a Planner section, which you can use for advance planning of automatic broadcast announcements (for example, advertisements at a department store, announcements at railway stations, school bells).
2N® IP Audio Virtual Sound Card
Broadcast music from your multimedia player
The 2N® IP Audio Virtual Sound Card application allows audio files to be played from your PC to connected 2N® Net Audio Decoder units or to individually created zones simply and easily. What’s more, you don’t need to add the audio files directly to the application, but you can play them using any multimedia player you’re used to (for example, iTunes, Winamp, Windows Media Player, etc.).
The 2N® IP Audio Virtual Sound Card application is designed for the 2N® Net Audio Decoder IP audio system with version 1.4.1 firmware or higher. Following simple installation and activation on your computer, you can select in which 2N® Net Audio Decoder units or zones you want the audio files to play with a mere click of the mouse.
2N® IP Audio Remote Control
Control your IP audio system easily
2N® IP Audio Remote Control is an application intended for iPhone, iPad and Android tablets, which allows you to quickly and simply control your 2N® NetSpeaker IP audio system. With this application you can play different music in individual zones and set the volume of your system. It also allows you to change and manage current playlists or create new ones. You can set all this from your mobile device, without the need to go to your computer or notebook.
2N® IP Audio Remote Control is sure to be appreciated by both home users and managers of smaller shops, hotel receptionists, secondary schools and smaller firms. In short, all users who want to change their audio content quickly and simply.
Download the application and see for yourself, how easy it is for you to control and setup your IP Audio system from 2N.
