PR&E Netwave Console

PR&E Netwave Console

The NetWave™ has the features, operational flexibility and robust construction needed for standalone on-air and production operations in a small, desktop form factor.

While the  NetWave console is equally suited for on-air, voice tracking and production capabilities, the full potential is met when it is used as part of a VistaMax™ audio network — as demonstrated by its popularity in countless multi-station facilities worldwide. Not only is it a control surface, but it’s also a fully functional console in which both the four program buses and single offline bus have digital and analog outputs.

The NetWave system’s analog inputs can be optionally be increased with a 4X-A2D A to D converter. It can also be networked using any VistaMax audio management frame to other audio consoles and I/O Edge devices (VMQ+VMXP), adjusting up or down according to facility needs.

Comprehensive logic facilities, “heads-up” metering, and full compatibility with VistaMax audio management devices and software are among the many reasons why the NetWave console continues to be a popular choice among engineers, programmers, and on-air talent.
