The WheatNet-IP PC Driver is software that streams audio bi-directionally via an Ethernet port, enabling any computer used for any purpose such as program automation, storage or logging to become part of the WheatNet-IP network.
The WheatNet-IP PC driver enables broadcasters to play audio throughout the entire WheatNet-IP network of studios and PCs without the use of soundcards. Available in single-channel, four-channel, and eight-channel versions, the WheatNet-IP driver connects automation and other third-party systems to the network for streaming audio and any associated control logic, such as satellite network cues or for turning channels on or off.
WheatNet-IP drivers have 64 soft logic ports associated with each audio stream. At 4.8 mb/s each, these drivers offer huge bandwidth savings, not to mention savings on switches, soundcards and other hardware otherwise needed for control logic functions. WheatNet-IP drivers can be installed on any PC, including news reporters' computers for recording and editing any audio in the system and the program directors' PC for listening in on the station programming from anywhere there’s an internet connection.
- Available in single (stereo) channel, four stereo pair, and eight stereo pair versions.
