Wheatstone Introduces New AoIP Console at NAB 2017

Following its acquisition of PR&E in February, Wheatstone Corporation will introduce at NAB 2017 its new PR&E DMX console line that is a complete, standalone studio system with console surface and IP audio networking.

Wheatstone announces the new PR&E DMX AoIP line of consoles for NAB 2017. The DMX AoIP is all-inclusive without the need for an external Ethernet switch. The console provides 1GB connectivity for robust routing of sources and destinations between studios and integrates easily into most existing broadcast automaton systems using proven WheatNet-IP automation drivers.

The control surface is a fully integrated standalone console for on-air and production applications. It is available in an 8-fader (DMX-8) or 16-fader (DMX-16) frame with four program busses and bus-minus on every fader as well as convenient control knob on each channel for adjusting pan, mode, and input sources. The console has talkback and cue functions, EQ/dynamics, and control room, studio and headphone monitors, plus LED metering, built-in timer, and four-event recall.

The DMX AoIP console surface is available with a 1RU DMX mix engine and 1RU Razor I/O module, which include 1GB Ethernet ports and RJ-45 interfaces for quick setup and easy studio audio routing.

“This is an ideal setup for the two- or three-studio facility where each studio can act independently as a separate standalone entity, but the studios are linked together through an IP network,” said Wheatstone Director of Sales Jay Tyler.
