X5 to Include New Nielsen Audio Software Encoder

Wheatstone has been working behind the scenes with Nielsen developers! In advance of the Nielsen Audio Software Encoding release for FM stations planned for early 2021, Wheatstone has gone through the necessary testing to receive the Nielsen certification. The Audio Software Encoder will be integrated in our Aura X5 audio processor, which will be available to FM stations after the successful completion of the field evaluation conducted by Nielsen in 2021.

AOIP. FROM HERE TO THE CLOUD.

AoIP From Here To The Cloud

 

Virtualization or cloud access is a very good example of what can happen when we combine AoIP with enterprise technology.

Currently, there are a number of cloud service providers, each with unique APIs, service level agreements and cost structures. The critical components of cloud systems include IP connectivity and supervisory software to manage access to virtual machines, which is fairly mature and in use by enterprises today.

But for broadcast purposes, we need to add two other critical components to that list:

• Audio encoding for bandwidth optimization
• AoIP control for system operation and management

Wheatstone has AoIP appliances for the WheatNet-IP audio network that include these critical components. With these additions, broadcasters can transport high-quality programming as well as the routing and control critical for full studio operation between sites.

VIRTUALIZATION BEGINS HERE

TownsquareGlass

Virtualization began when we replaced sound cards with audio drivers, which effectively let us network audio with control functions together. Inside every WheatNet-IP audio driver are virtual general-purpose logic I/Os that can be queried by automation scripts and routed along with audio signals to perform control functions.

At the same time, we put mixing as a service on the network.

I/O BLADE units that make up the WheatNet-IP audio network have two stereo 8x2 internal mixers, each of which can be used as a source or input to the system and therefore are very useful for grouping several mics to a single output, talkback, or other purpose.

These and other AoIP developments led the way to virtual mixers and an assortment of UIs now hanging off the network. Some WheatNet-IP audio network interfaces are simple standalone virtual consoles, others are tapthrough screens on a tablet, and still others are physical consoles with soft buttons that can be changed as easily as any virtual UI. Wheatstone offers them all, and what we haven’t created yet, broadcasters can create themselves using our ScreenBuilder app.
