With IP at the heart of broadcasting’s future, codecs are increasingly the gateways of content assimilation and distribution
Wheatstone will add more routable audio tools and elements to the IBC2022 native AoIP offering with its power Blade 4 I/O unit and new GSX console surface for its WheatNet-IP Intelligent Audio Network.
The GSX console surface is Wheatstone’s latest fully reprogrammable AoIP console combining soft controls with a tactile surface and touchscreen interface.
Both add to the complete WheatNet-IP intelligent ecosystem of AoIP studio elements and third-party technology partners, which includes consoles and virtual interfaces to routable audio codecs, EQ dynamics, mixing, stream provisioning and scripting tools.
Wheatstone says the MP-532 introduces new algorithms to produce even deeper lows, detailed highs and a warm and present midrange that have not been possible from an audio processor until now.
The MP-532 is a multipurpose processor for FM, AM and streaming and includes RDS, multiplex power controller and WheatNet-IP audio network interface.
Wheatstone will be at stand 8.C91 at IBC2022, where it will also demo its new Layers software suite that runs on most commodity servers for adding new studios, consolidating stations and backing up entire broadcast suites.
