Put control exactly where you need it. The SideBoard rackmount or ultra-compact tabletop control surface is perfect for newsrooms, guest talent booths – anywhere you need console control. As a front end to your WheatNet-IP Intelligent Network, the SideBoard does everything the big consoles do, only in a much smaller footprint.
SideBoard comes in two form factors: a small tabletop unit for control on the side or a 4RU control unit for rackmount control. Both interface to the WheatNet-IP Intelligent Network for accessing sources, triggering command and logic functions, and for routing audio. Each SideBoard fader channel has an ON/OFF switch, PGM and AUD bus assign buttons, a programmable button that can be used for source functions such as preset and talkback, plus a switch for accessing the central source selection rotary control.
Each fader on the SideBoard rackmount or control surface unit has its own 8-character input source display. The stereo PGM output is metered with dual 20-segment LED bargraphs.The SideBoard monitor section has headphone output with level control, and six programmable monitor source hot buttons for instant selection. There is also a source encoder knob with a TAKE switch, and an associated display that, as with the input channels, can access any signal in the WheatNet-IP Intelligent Network.
This is a preliminary spec sheet for the new SideBoard Rack. A full brochure is in production and will be available shortly.
This paper examines QoS, transport, protocols and other issues relevant to extending AoIP networks for sharing resources and controlling studios across a wider area network.
Shows the new products we are working on for 2016
A full-color brochure describing the BLADE-3 line of WheatNet-IP network access points.
This brochure provides overviews of the entire WheatNet-IP Intelligent Network. It includes technical details as well as acts as a catalog for all Control Surfaces, BLADES and Accessories.
A document describing configuration of the Cisco 3750G, 3560G, 3650 and 3850 ethernet switches for use with the WheatNet-IP Intelligent Network.
This is a technical manual covering all of the WheatNet-IP BLADE-3s.
This document shows simplified diagrams of the proper wiring and connections for logic I/O on WheatNet-IP BLADEs.
This document is a brief description of the logic function names used in the Wheatstone WheatNet-IP system.
IP Audio Networks: Planning for Reliability A white paper by Andrew Calvanese, VP Engineering, Wheatstone Corporation
WheatNet-IP brings added convenience and simplicity to the configuration of a PC- based automation system such as RCS Zetta. Where once it was necessary to employ a specialized sound card, discrete analog or digital audio wiring, a logic interface, and control cabling, with WheatNet-IP’s PC Driver, we can accomplish all of this over a single Ethernet cable. The driver effectively acts as a WheatNet-IP BLADE, and lets the PC enjoy full access to all aspects of the WheatNet-IP intelligent network. The driver is available in versions that offer one, four, eight, twelve, and twenty-four stereo input and output channels. For situations where discrete outputs from Zetta players are desired, we recommend at least the four-channel version of the driver.
