Configurable IP audio console10 September 2016
A new IP audio broadcast console that claims to take control surface configuration to a new level is being debuted. Wheatstone said its LXE offers a fully flexible control interface with programmable switches, rotary controls and fader groupings that can be remotely located
The LXE is Wheatstone’s latest addition to its IP audio console line for use with its WheatNet-IP audio network, a complete AES67-compatible network system with end-to-end audio transport, logic control and an audio toolkit at every I/O point in the network to enable intelligent deployment and operation.
“Broadcasters kept telling us they needed a console surface that is more adaptable for all the applications they’re doing these days.
By eliminating the usual hard-coded buttons and encoders and instead scripting out those capabilities much like we’ve done with our audio network, we can give them that,” said Kelly Parker, Wheatstone’s systems engineer, who headed up the development of the new LXE.
