The Annucicom PS1 Paging Station from Barix AG of Zurich, Switzerland, offers a simple, fully integrated hardware solution for paging and intercom over IP. It features two backlit push-to-talk buttons, volume control, and a built-in speaker and microphone. IP addressability enables a simple connection to the network so integrators can use existing infrastructure. Power over Ethernet capability further simplifies installation. The device can merge with background music systems for retailers and hospitality venues. Because the paging station is bidirectional, it enables remote parties to respond to the operator if necessary. The design accommodates wall-mount and desktop installations, and a belt clip allows it to become mobile.
