Mix, route and trigger elements, functions or events anywhere on any device. 

Home or studio. Phone or console surface. Single location or multiple locations. WheatNet-IP touches everything.

Simplify your operation. 

WheatNet-IP is the only AoIP combining logic control with routable audio tools such as utility mixers, audio processing, streaming encoders and embedded CPU as part of the AoIP native environment.

Eliminate racks and rooms of hardware. 

Everything from mic processing to streaming appliances and automation integration is in one native AoIP environment.

Combine regional studios in one AoIP environment

Opus and AAC codecs as part of the AoIP let you share studio resources and talent across a WAN. AES67 compliance and NMOS support give you access outside the network.

Easy setup. 

Unbox and let WheatNet-IP Blades do the rest. Each Blade is self-aware and self-configuring. No IP addressing required. Save your engineering resources for more important tasks.
