Wheatstone at NAB New York Show
Wheatstone will showcase real-time remote control and transport of IP audio with a foosball table on one side of its booth and a home studio on the other, with fiber optic connectivity between the two. “It was either football or foosball — I wanted football, but booth space would have been a real problem! So foosball it is to show how easily we can mix an event remotely using our WheatNet-IP audio network and consoles“, has said Wheatstone Director of Sales Jay Tyler.
Wheatstone colaborates with Artel
Wheatstone is collaborating with Artel Video Systems to create a WAN between two Cisco switches. The WAN uses Artel’s InfinityLink IL6000 broadcast media transport chassis equipped with an ILC205 9 Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch with VLAN and the ILC103A 3G/HD/SD-SDI, ASI Transmitter/Receiver. “Artel continues to demonstrate the applicability of its product line“, has said Rafael Fonseca, Vice President and Director of Product Management at Artel Video Systems. “In this case, the versatility and application ‘reach’ of the InfinityLink platform in support of solutions addressing workflow costs and efficiencies are demonstrated”.
Remote WheatNet-IP audio BLADEs are behind the Cisco switch at one end (‘remote’) with Wheatstone mixing consoles and WheatNet-IP audio network BLADEs on the other end (‘at home’). At the ‘remote’ foosball table are microphones interfaced into a Wheatstone M4-IP four channel mic processor BLADE, which provides sound sweetening, mix-minus for IFB and connectivity into the WheatNet-IP audio network.
“WheatNet-IP BLADEs have utility mixersbuilt in for creating IFB mix-minuses locally at the venue, which means that annoying delayis all but nonexistent”, explains Tyler.
Representing the home studio are Wheatstone IP audio consoles, including large-frame IP-64, Dimension Three Touch, LXE and Series Four control surfaces. NAB attendees will beable to sit down at the home studio side and punch up mic feeds or change EQ, activate/deactivate microphones, and control other functions at the remote end.
