X5 Includes 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.

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.

CONTAINERIZATION, ALTERNATIVE TO VIRTUALIZATION

ContainerDiagram

By Scott Gerenser and Andy Calvanese

One term popping up more and more in the cloud space is "containerization." If you're paying attention to the trends in cloud computing, you've probably heard about it, or at least about the most popular container platform, Docker.

Containerization is becoming a popular alternative to virtualization for running many different applications on a single machine or cloud instance. It has many of the benefits of virtualization but without some of the downsides, which makes it useful for transitioning from a fixed-location studio to a virtual operation.

Whereas virtualization involves emulating an entire machine, including the hardware and operating system, containerization involves encapsulating one or more applications and supporting files (so called "userspace" in Linux lingo) into containers that can then run on top of a single common operating system (usually Linux).
