Engineers Disappearing

It has come to our attention that broadcast engineers, like redwood trees, giant pandas and baby formula, are rapidly disappearing. Too many are aging out. Too few are entering in. And studios are left unattended as a result. What can broadcasters do about it? We have three suggestions based on what we’ve learned as a technology partner for many of the industry’s largest broadcast groups.

Getting There from Here: AoIP Over Fiber

Compass Media recently extended its studio WheatNet-IP to a transmitter site in the Cayman Islands using a fiber optic drop. “We’re running straight WheatNet at 44.1 kHz into two strands of fiber from the switch at the studio, and literally out the other end at the transmitter is 44.1 kHz WheatNet straight into the FM-55 audio processor and into the transmitter,” explained Mark Lee, Compass Media operations manager.

Wheatstone Layers: Virtualization from Mic to Transmitter

Introducing Wheatstone Layers, the entirely virtual broadcast chain from multitouch “glass” consoles to backend mixing, audio processing and streaming.

READ ABOUT LAYERS

Mix, route and trigger elements, functions or events anywhere on any device. 

Home or studio. Phone or console surface. Single location or multiple locations. WheatNet-IP touches everything.

Simplify your operation. 

WheatNet-IP is the only AoIP combining logic control with routable audio tools such as utility mixers, audio processing, streaming encoders and embedded CPU as part of the AoIP native environment.

Eliminate racks and rooms of hardware. 

Everything from mic processing to streaming appliances and automation integration is in one native AoIP environment.

Combine regional studios in one AoIP environment

Opus and AAC codecs as part of the AoIP let you share studio resources and talent across a WAN. AES67 compliance and NMOS support give you access outside the network.

Easy setup. 

Unbox and let WheatNet-IP Blades do the rest. Each Blade is self-aware and self-configuring. No IP addressing required. Save your engineering resources for more important tasks.

Your Studio. Your Way. 

Console surfaces, talent stations and unlimited virtual interfaces to choose from. Customize your AoIP system for your studios now, and add on appliances, elements, and virtualization later.

No Studio Too Small. No Studio Too Big.
