The World's Finest Audio for Broadcast

New For 2014

Wheatstone: Audio Consoles, Processing, Networking

If it's audio broadcast, it's happening at Wheatstone. We manufacture broadcast audio products, from digital consoles, control surfaces and Audioarts mixers to fully integrated audio over IP (AoIP) and TDM routing systems as well as spectral audio processing for on air and over the internet, plus a wide variety of studio and broadcast wares for radio, television and commercial installations.

Installed in more broadcast facilities than any other console brand, Wheatstone and Audioarts provide complete  program access and control for your broadcast facility. Mission Critical. Failsafe. Bulletproof – just some of the words people use to describe our studio products. Friendly. Knowledgeable. Exceptionally cool – just some of the words used to describe our people.

Something New is in (on) the Air

FM55andCat 420If the station across town suddenly starts to blow everyone else off the dial, blame it on the new FM-55 audio processor. We let the cat out of the bag a few weeks ago, and there’s no putting it back.

We put some interesting new circuitry in the FM-55, and there’s no question that our intelligent five-band AGC coupled to a multiband limiter is getting those highs, lows and mids to sing.

Splitting Hairs and Consoles

SplitLX24 420Only in Switzerland would they think to split our flagship LX-24 control surface in two, build the two halves into slick looking furniture with LED illuminated edges, and electronically raise and lower the desk as needed. Read on.

New Wheatstone Gear In New Zealand


MORE FM in New Zealand had  to completely rebuild their studios after a devastating earthquake. We'll have a complete story on the rebuild soon. 

In the meantime, Simon Barnett sent along this video, shot in their new studios, when our own Jay Tyler was there recently.

Here's Simon talking about their new gear.

The Terrey of it All

TerreyEdit 420“If you look at the workflows in television right now, everything is going file-based and IP. Once you capture it on camera and mic and mix it through a board, it is transported as digital content.

This is creating tremendous opportunities for simplification of the broadcast chain and for transporting the content within a broadcast facility as well as in mobile production. In the end, it all comes down to networking.”

- John Terrey, new sales engineer in charge of Wheatstone’s line of TV audio consoles and network routing systems. John joins Wheatstone with more than 30 years’ experience in the broadcast industry, having worked in a variety of segments, from test and measurement to live production, post-production and transmission.


Sales Engineering and Delivery

WheatVideoSplash CS 6 23

Our customer support team talks about the importance of Wheatstone's sales engineers in helping a customer determine what sort of system he needs, and how the rest of our team works to make that happen right the first time.

We asked some of our folks to go on camera and simply talk to each other. We think you'll like what they had to say... unrehearsed and unscripted.

Wheatstone Inside The Idea Factory Videos

Meet Dave Breithaupt


Meet Dave Breithaupt, human transistor. Dave was one of the first engineers to work with field-programmable gate arrays (FPGA) in the ‘80s, and is now the guy responsible for Wheatstone’s firmware designs. You probably have never met Dave, but you might know of his work.

His FPGA designs were married to a Linux microprocessor to yield the hardware needed to build the WheatNet-IP Intelligent Network, for example.

In the 12 years that Dave has worked with Wheatstone, he has been involved in just about every new product design at the firmware level on down to the switches and buttons of Wheatstone control surfaces.

Dave started out designing television cameras for RCA and has worked in electro optic imaging, X-ray imaging, and military electronics for companies like GE before landing at Wheatstone.

The only thing he enjoys almost as much as working on Wheatstone products is taking the motorcycle out for a spin. Which is saying a lot about his dedication to Wheatstone, because Dave has five motorcycles.

The Virtual Studio Becomes a Reality

GlassEFullScreenOnPad 670


Whoever said that the laws of physics are merely a suggestion could be onto something.

The entirely virtual broadcast studio is not only possible, but most of the pieces are already in place.

A good majority of what stations do today – schedule music, stream it, record news updates, even turn on a mic and preload settings for it -- can be done without ever leaving the WheatNet-IP network.

Sweeet NAB

CandyAirAuraX3 420It was Day Two of the NAB show when we noticed someone walking by our booth talking a mile a minute to an associate, who had clearly just arrived and was being briefed on the latest product announcements.

We strained to hear what he was saying and might have even heard the Wheatstone name mentioned a few times. But just as the two got within earshot, we heard the kicker: “You know what else is new this year?” Pause. “The candy.”

AES67 and Undiscovered Country

Steve DovePredictably, Wheatstone's Minister of Algorithms, Steve Dove, didn’t go down the same beaten path of AES67 compliance as everyone else presenting at the NAB Broadcast Engineering session on audio over IP. 

His discussion on the next thing that needs to happen in studio interoperability put him squarely in discovery and control country – the layer of network communication that is off the grid with regard to AES67, which mainly deals with audio timing and sync issues.
