Featured Software, Axia Livewire Stream Player

DirectStream is a .NET application that connects directly to an Axia Livewire Network and receives Standard and Live streams. The Network is polled for sources, so that any source available to other Axia devices is also available to the DirectStream player. This makes a standard Windows computer act as an Axia Device for the purposes of receiving. There are 8 presets that can be set to any source. The preset buttons have Friendly Names programmable in the application settings. This program preforms similarly to the iPlay app sold by Telos Alliance.  The DirectStream application is a low-cost alternative offering more features than iPlay. There is significant cost savings if a receive only device is needed, because it does not require the Axia Driver. The Volume Meter is an accurate measurement tool with 77 dB range. 2 settings allow it to read 0 dB or +20 dB reference levels.  +20 dB is the standard on many Axia consoles so it gives you a comparable indication.  A volume Control slider lets you independently set the gain of the 8 channels. Optionally, the gain values are saved as the slider is moved.  Adjusting the gain is very helpful in situations such as an output that drives an unbalanced input.  If you choose to use virtual audio cables, the incoming stream can be presented to another program such as a recorder or streaming server.  DirectStream is suitable to be used as an input to an audio logger with virtual cables.

Explination of Settings

List Device IP:  This is set to an existing device on the Network.  It must be an Axia Node, xNode, Mix engine, PowerStation I/O or other Axia device that has a web interface.  All sources on the network retrieved over port 80 and populate the sources used by DirectStream.
Profile Name: This is a user defined name for this instance of the player. Any number of players can run by creating a shortcut and appending " #" where " #" is a space then a number to set the instance.  For example, you may use 1,2,3,4 for 4 shortcuts.  Each shortcut will launch a separate instance with independent settings. The application launched with no arguments, starts the default instance (instance 0) .  Each player has its own settings independent of each other.
Meter Scale: You may select either 0dB or 20dB from the dropdown to set the meter scale accordingly.
Select Last Source on Launch: Check this box if you plan to use the AutoStart feature.  When checked, the application will select the button that was selected the last time the program was running.
Auto Save Gain: When checked, the gain in the Settings field at the right side of the input, will be updated with the current value on the Volume Slider.

Pull Sources

Clicking the Pull Sources Button initiates the search for all sources on the Axia Network.  Sources will be extracted from http response on port 80 of the List Device defined on the settings page.  Once this list populated, it's a good idea to click the "use file" checkbox so a cached version of the sources is used.  If any changes are made to sources on your network, they will not be reflected in the available sources until the "use file" checkbox is unchecked and a new search is initiated.
