New at IBC is Wheatstone’s Glass LXE virtual console for its established WheatNet-IP audio network.
Glass LXE is a multi-touch UI that operates as a standalone virtual console into the WheatNet network, an IP audio ecosystem of consoles, talent stations, I/O units, accessories and SIP phone and codec distribution appliances. WheatNet-IP is a complete AoIP infrastructure that includes AES67 compatibility.
The virtual console is similar in function, feel and layout to the network’s LXE hardware control surface, and Glass LXE is fully functional and studio-ready as a user interface with familiar buttons, knobs and multi-touch navigation and menuing for setting EQ curves, filtering and other custom settings.
Glass LXE can be used anywhere there’s a PC touchscreen or several touchscreens connected over that network. Glass LXE comes with a mix engine to handle mixing and processing as part of the WheatNet-IP audio network. The virtual console is one of several new WheatNet-IP additions this year, adding to the hundreds of software and hardware elements that make up the WheatNet-IP audio network.
Wheatstone is exhibiting at IBC2019 on Stand 8.C91.
