2019AwardsBAt this year's NAB show, Wheatstone was the recipient of NAB's PRODUCT OF THE YEAR award and TWO Future BEST OF SHOW awards. 

The new SwitchBlade - a revolutionary appliance that combines the power of AoIP control with SIP connectivity and codec bandwidth optimization, removing barriers to combining studio operations in separate locations - was presented with the prestigious NAB PRODUCT OF THE YEAR AWARD in the Audio Production, Processing and Networking category! 

“SwitchBlade is a real game changer because it finally makes it possible to monitor each point of the audio chain and switch audio locally from Network Operation Centers around the world,” said Wheatstone Sales Director Jay Tyler, who accepted the award along with Michael Farrell, the Managing Director of Wheatstone's technology partner Radiomation Ltd, during an NAB reception at the Las Vegas Convention Center on Wednesday, April 10.

Additionally, Radio World presented a Future BEST OF SHOW Award for SwitchBlade! 

PLUS, TV Technology AND Government Video each presented Future BEST OF SHOW AWARDS to our brand new Strata 32. It's a TV Audio Console that packs 64 channels and the latest IP audio innovations into a 40” frame.

Thanks to all who came to the booth to see our exciting new stuff (which we had a LOT of, including PhoneBlade, X5, Glass LXE, Remote LXE, Virtual Dimension Three, and Stagebox One).

Wheatstone at NAB 2019:

It was a busy year at booth N6860.

First, we introduced SwitchBlade, a revolutionary NEW appliance that removes the barriers to seamlessly sharing studio operation and high-quality programming between facilities, sports venues, and other sites in separate locations. With it, you have bi-directional communications with codecs, phones, etc. which allow you to repurpose studio codecs as remotes while SwitchBlade acts as a multi-channel studio unit. Additionally, it provides the means for moving multiple channels of linear audio between two facilities while simultaneously providing full control, logic, and ACI implementation through your WheatNet-IP audio network. And there's a LOT more to it. The possibilities are enormous for today's broadcast world.

In the sneak-peek department, we let Wheatstone customers take a first look at StreamBlade, a solution for streaming directly from your WheatNet-IP Network.

We also showed Strata-32, a compact new TV IP control surface and IP stagebox designed from the ground-up for modern efficient audio-for-TV applications - both studio and remote. Designed to fit in tight studios or trucks, this duo is perfect for working with the current and upcoming standards that are being rolled out to the TV world.

Also for TV we had Virtual Dimension Three - a standalone virtual console that can also be used as virtual way to monitor and control your Dimension Three's TV audio from anywhere. 

In processing, we introduced the X5. While developing the X4, we kept coming up with more and more ground-breaking new features, so we decided to move right on up to the next version. And you'll be glad we did. With Unified Processing, the LIMITLESS Clipper, MPX SyncLink, FM&HD LiveLock, PPMport, Live Logger, complete system logging, and Kantar support, there are now many more ways to give your listeners the sound they crave.

Additionally, we showed the MPX SyncLink, which allows you to keep your X5 in the studio for easy access while delivering a multiplexed sync-locked FM/HD signal direct to the transmitter, completely eliminating link-induced diversity delay errors.

And with our new dedicated Glass LXE, we're giving you a full-blown LXE console live on a tablet - with no need for a Virtual Mixer Interface. Gorgeous. Or, if you need to control your physical LXE console from anywhere you happen to be, we've Remote LXE for you.

We brought  Stagebox One, a high-density I/O box that extends console I/O, providing 32 mic/line inputs, 16 analog line outputs, and 8 AES3 inputs and 8 AES3 outputs as well as 12 logic ports and dual Ethernet ports.
