Wheatstone Series Four

Wheatstone recently introduced two consoles, the Series Four entry-level audio console and the Dimension Three large-format audio console for TV.

Series Four Audio Console, introduced at NAB 2014 is an entry-level console that answers the need for a professional audio console for today’s automated television production. Unlike semi-pro recording or live reinforcement consoles, the Series Four has the size, feel and module width that are conductive to fast-paced live production. It has a complete tally system, motorized faders, and true surround with up/down mixing between 5.1 and stereo, plus busses and mix-minus galore (two main mix busses, four subgroups, up to 48 channel mix-minuses, 4 mix minus busses, and two AUX sends).

This console is made to work with today’s production automation systems -- its control interface is compatible with all the major automation systems on the market. Yet, it has all the important broadcast-specific features, such as automatic studio muting, machine control logic, de-embedding inputs, 5.1 surround capability, balanced or unbalanced AES inputs, router integration, and flexible monitoring capability.

Additionally, all input channels have 4-band parametric EQ sections, tuneable high and low pass filters, and compressor/limiters, plus expander/gate and programmable delay for lip-sync correction.

This console handles all format signals; analog, AES, MADI and HD/SDI input signals -- and deliver any source or console bus to any destination in the broadcast network. It has a large, high-resolution multifunction touchscreen display for capturing information at a glance: metering, channel/bus assignments, and programmable control functions. A LKFS meter for loudness monitoring is also included in the main display.
