New from Wheatstone is the Glass LXE virtual console. Glass LXE is a multi-touch UI that operates as a standalone virtual console for the WheatNet-IP audio network, a complete IP audio ecosystem of consoles, talent stations, I/O units, accessories and SIP phone and codec distribution appliances.
Similar in function, feel and layout to the network’s flagship LXE hardware control surface, Glass LXE is fully functional and ready for the studio as a user interface with familiar buttons, knobs and multi-touch navigation and menus for setting EQ curves, filtering and other custom settings.
Glass LXE can be used anywhere there is a PC touchscreen, or several touchscreens connected over the WheatNet-IP audio network. It comes with a mix engine to handle mixing and processing as part of network.
The virtual console is one of several new WheatNet-IP additions.
Kelly Parker, applications engineer, Wheatstone, said: “You can run it on a laptop or on multiple PC screens from a cloud. Glass LXE can be used alone or combined with the physical LXE surface to give broadcasters full console control anywhere that’s needed, and on a UI that is very familiar.”
