Wheatstone To Demo WheatNet-IP Compatibility At 2017 IBC IP Showcase

Wheatstone, a supplier of IP audio networking technology and systems, is partnering with more than 50 other vendors and third-party organizations at the 2017 IBC Show to demonstrate AES67 compatibility and IP audio networking in television environments.

Wheatstone makes and will show its WheatNet-IP system, an AES67 compatible IP audio network designed specifically for broadcast purposes that is in use by major U.S. and global broadcast operations.

As part of the IBC IP Showcase, which will be held in room E106 during the conference, Wheatstone will demonstrate its WheatNet-IP audio network and AES67 compatibility in an overall system based on SMPTE ST 2110 final draft standards. SMPTE ST 2110 defines AES67 as the audio element in the transition to IP. Wheatstone is one of more than 50 vendors working together to demonstrate real-world IP interoperability.
