Wheatstone Rebrands DMX Technology And Adds IP Networking Capability

Wheatstone announced that its DMX digital console technology will now be marketed under the Audioarts Engineering brand and become fully WheatNet-IP audio-over-IP networking compatible. This means the AoIP enhanced console engine now includes a built-in Ethernet switch that brings intelligent routing and control to stations on a budget.

The company said its DMX console’s mix engine provides direct connectivity into the WheatNet-IP audio network, which consists of a complete ecosystem of consoles, talent stations, I/O units, accessories and virtual tools used in radio stations around the globe.

Jay Tyler, Director of Sales at Wheatstone, said adding WheatNet-IP capability to the Audioarts console allows stations to automate functions they couldn’t approach before. This enables them to run leaner, more efficient operations overall, and opens a pathway to the new world of AES67 interoperability.”

The console’s mix engine includes a built-in 5-port Ethernet switch. No external switch is required to create or join an existing WheatNet-IP system, making DMX one of the more affordable entry-level IP audio networked consoles on the market.

Existing PR&E DMX users can upgrade DMX surfaces and Razors to the latest firmware to take advantage of this change. Wheatstone’s PR&E digital console series is now marketed under the Audioarts global distribution network, bringing intelligent networking to the Audioarts brand.
