New this IBC is an AoIP appliance that removes the barriers to seamlessly sharing studio operation and high-quality programming between facilities, sports venues, and other sites in separate locations.
SwitchBlade is a 1RU appliance for the WheatNet-IP audio network that includes audio codecs, SIP messaging and ACI control interface. Wheatstone said it is the first product of its kind to combine the power of AoIP logic control with SIP connectivity and codec bandwidth optimization to transport both high-quality programming and the control logic critical for full studio operation between sites. SwitchBlade can remotely trigger events and elements in the WheatNet-IP environment, such as turning mics on or off, setting levels and adjusting EQ dynamics through software logic control.
“SwitchBlade is the missing link for connecting WheatNet-IP facility to WheatNet-IP facility from city to city or across the world,” said Wheatstone Sales Director Jay Tyler. “Not only will it carry the audio, it carries the control, which means you can send and receive router commands, automation control, and even fader levels across the two locations.”
Wheatstone is exhibiting at IBC2019 on Stand 8.C91.
