The Speaker object is used for configuration of the sound alert triggered by a macros.


Audio notifications cannot be played back via the system speakers on a remote Client.  In this case, you are advised to run an external program on Clients.

In Axxon Next you can create the following types of Speaker objects:

  1. IP speaker device. Created automatically if there is an audio outlet on an IP device.


    One audio outlet on an IP device corresponds to one child Speaker of the Camera object

  2. System speaker. Created manually. Sound on the system speaker is played back using the server's sound card.

A Speaker object can play audio notification files with the extensions:

  1. .wav
  2. .mp3
  3. .mkv
  4. .avi

The following audio notification file encoding formats are supported:

  1. G.711
  2. G.726
  3. PCM

The audio notification file should be stored on the computer corresponding to the Server object on the basis of which the Speaker object is registered.
