Wheatstone E Squared
Ethernet audio system
The E2 System is designed to interface with Wheatstone’s existing line of E-Series control surfaces including the new Evolution 4 control surface. The flexible E2 system is comprised of linkable units or squares that communicate with one another via a single CAT-5E/6 cable connected to standard layer 3 Ethernet switches. The E2 Digital Engine handles all of the mixes from the E-Series surfaces while housing the DSP power and managing the distribution of PGM, AUX, and mix-minus buses throughout the system. 12 Universal Logic ports are encased in the single rack unit which is equipped with front-panel access to real-time control features such as IP setting, up time, network traffic and logic status. Web/PC software user interfaces provide remote access and control.
Jampro Antennas RCPU
The RCPU is a quick release, patch panel with a low insertion loss. A positive lock mechanism ensures quick re-directions of RF signal paths. The euipment is useful for patching RF feeds to emergency antenna, alternate main/auxiliary transmitters, filter by-pass, master station combiner re-routes and test point insertions. No tools are required to make patches. The unit comes in several sizes with an optional signal-flow indicator panel, dual-line power splitter or power measuring VSWR.
Broadcast Electronics Audio Vault X
Studio automation platform
Audio Vault X is a new studio platform with more capacity and flexibility for adding and personalizing format channels on the Internet or over the air. New capabilities enable broadcasters to do more with less. Audio Vault X handles complex segues, such as inserting donut tracks in the middle of a song, station ID or weathercast. It can even do double donuts -- that is, drop in a voice or other segment in the middle of a song or jingle twice. Plus, talent can manipulate fades, audio levels and other characteristics of segues. Personalized studio mashups combine studio tools and applications from more than one source into a single workspace. The Audio Vault X multi-thread engine enables talent in separate studios to work collectively off the same log, in real-time. BE's Audio Vault X is a complete digital media system for live-assist or satellite operation. The new platform offers on-air studio operation as well as a full suite of scheduling and production modules for multi-track editing, music rotation and ad insertion.
