Wheatstone's products and studio systems are designed and built specifically for the demands of broadcasting. They cover a range from smaller single-station studios to large multi-studio, multi-station complexes with a million cross-points and dozens of mixers, talent stations, and elements connected across a region. Broadcast grade AoIP software, devices, consoles, talent stations, and appliances, all engineered, manufactured and supported by your number one industry partner.




How often have you been driving along and noticed a new business sign going up? What used to be Bank A is now Bank B, or maybe the bank is gone and what used to sit at the corner of First and Elm is now a new shoe store. 

Welcome to same place, different business, a trend that seems to be happening a lot lately, especially in broadcasting. 

“The manufacturer of most of our TV transmitters has been gone since 2014. We’re still running them but it’s a reminder that you have to have a level of trust in what you’re putting into your station because it’ll be there a long time,” said Matt Monin, Director of Broadcast Engineering, TV, for Arkansas PBS who also takes on studio projects for other broadcasters in the state.




A while back, we told you about a new protocol for transporting video and audio in real-time over the internet. We explained that RIST, or Reliable Internet Stream Transport, adds error correction and packet recovery to UDP multicasting, which gives you audio quality on top of low latency for live-streaming audio and control data across public networks (where links are less reliable and distance adds more delay). Here’s what else you should know about RIST for transporting audio and control from a local AoIP network in your building to a sports venue, regional server or third-party cloud provider like AWS.

There are three critical indicators on the mixing desk that help you keep an eye on audio levels.

Mix, route and trigger elements, functions or events anywhere on any device. 

Home or studio. Phone or console surface. Single location or multiple locations. WheatNet-IP touches everything.

Simplify your operation. 

WheatNet-IP is the only AoIP combining logic control with routable audio tools such as utility mixers, audio processing, streaming encoders and embedded CPU as part of the AoIP native environment.

Eliminate racks and rooms of hardware. 

Everything from mic processing to streaming appliances and automation integration is in one native AoIP environment.

Combine regional studios in one AoIP environment

Opus and AAC codecs as part of the AoIP let you share studio resources and talent across a WAN. AES67 compliance and NMOS support give you access outside the network.

Easy setup. 

Unbox and let WheatNet-IP Blades do the rest. Each Blade is self-aware and self-configuring. No IP addressing required. Save your engineering resources for more important tasks.
