The 1RU BLADE-3 offers processing control and network connectivity through the WheatNet-IP Intelligent Network and full AGC, compression and limiting functions for HD, streaming or pod casting separate channels of programming in one unit.

The Aura8IP-3 BLADE-3 audio processor brings two of Wheatstone’s core technologies together: Vorsis ultra-high resolution audio processing and the WheatNet-IP Intelligent Network. Merging these technologies in a single product provides a convenient and cost effective way to access audio processing wherever you need it on your WheatNet-IP network. The Aura8IP-3 occupies a single rack space, but packs in an impressive eight fully independent Vorsis® multi-band stereo audio processors.

Each processing chain consists of a 4-band parametric equalizer followed by a crossover and three bands of compression. The compressors each feed their own limiters, whose outputs are then fed to a broadband lookahead limiter for tight peak control. The Aura8-IP has its own local I/O, with four stereo pairs of AES digital audio and four stereo pairs of analog line level audio in and out, and can function as a standalone processing engine. Because it’s a BLADE-3, it can also instantly configure itself as part of a new or existing WheatNet-IP Intelligent Network, making its processing power available throughout that network.

And, like all BLADE-3 access units, the Aura8IP-3 BLADE-3 is AES67 compatible. 

The Aura8IP-3 is configured and controlled over Ethernet using a laptop or desktop computer. Included with the unit is Wheatstone’s acclaimed “Guru” GUI software, which allows easy setup of the processing using familiar, straightforward controls. Also available is a more sophisticated control interface called “GUI Pro,” which provides access to every individual processing parameter for expert-level adjustments.
