Wheatstone partners with Media Networking Alliance (MNA), Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS) and others to demonstrate AES67 at IP Showcase, North Hall, Booth N4824 

NEW BERN, NC, USA (April 18, 2017) – Wheatstone, a leader in IP audio networking, is partnering with other vendors and third-party organizations this NAB show to demonstrate AES67 compatibility and IP audio networking in both radio and television.

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

This widely used IP audio networking system will be part of the NAB IP Showcase in the North Hall, booth N4824, put on by AES, Media Networking Alliance (MNA), the Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS), the Advanced Media Workflow Association (AMWA), the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), IABM (the international trade association for suppliers of broadcast and media technology), the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) and the Video Services Forum (VSF).

WheatNet-IP audio networking will demonstrate AES67 compatibility in an overall system based on SMPTE ST 2110, a standard currently in advanced draft stage that defines AES67 as the audio element in the transition to IP. “This demonstration is a major collaboration that shows the growing significance of IP in broadcasting today,” said Wheatstone Vice President of Technology Andy Calvanese.

Wheatstone is an Associate Member of MNA and a member of IABM.

In addition, Wheatstone is partnering with real-time multimedia delivery company Artel this upcoming NAB show to demonstrate live remote production using virtualized audio services across a wide-area network. Demonstrations will take place at Wheatstone booth N6531 and Artel booth N4511. As part of the demo, a GoPro feed from a drone in the Artel booth and audio feeds from a live simulated sporting event at the Wheatstone booth will be networked into the WheatNet-IP system. 

WheatNet-IP audio networking will also be shown at a number of booths on the convention floor, demonstrating its compatibility with a variety of vendor partners and products ranging from automation to codec systems. Tieline Technology (N7425), ENCO Systems (N2024), OMT Technologies (N8410), Broadcast Supply Worldwide (N8106), O.C. White (N6916), StudioCast (N6133), WinMedia Group (C7706), and DJB Software (N6234) are a few of the companies that will be including WheatNet-IP audio networking in their displays this NAB. 

In addition to the above, Wheatstone staff will be talking about virtualized audio services at several engineering sessions during the NAB show. On Saturday, April 22, at 9:00 a.m., Phil Owens and Lon Neumann will present The IP-Based Audio System and the At-Home Production Model, room N258. On Tuesday, April 25, at 2:00 p.m., Lon Neumann will present Extending the IP Audio Network Across a WAN, room N258.
