Best of Show: Wheatstone Layers Stream on AWS

It includes stream provisioning, audio processing and metadata support

We are featuring the products that won the Radio World Best of Show Award at the recent NAB Show. Winners were chosen by a panel of radio engineers and RW editorial staff for their innovation, feature set, cost efficiency and performance in serving the industry.

Wheatstone presented a cloud version of Layers Stream running on Amazon Web Services.

Layers Stream software includes stream provisioning, audio processing and metadata support. It’s part of the Layers Software Suite, which also has modules for running instances of FM/HD processing and mixing in cloud data centers such as AWS or on-prem servers.

At the show, Wheatstone demonstrated streaming instances running in AWS that can be brought up and torn down rapidly and controlled through a browser-like interface. Layers Stream includes audio processing for streaming and Lua transformation filters to convert metadata input from an automation system into any output format, including Triton Digital, for transmission to a CDN server.

The Layers suite has an FM module and mix module for radio and TV. Layers Mix has a full-featured mix engine and Glass virtual mixers for the laptop, tablet or touchscreen with routing, logic, automixing and native IP audio integration with automation. Layers modules can be used for remote or REMI applications between studios and cloud centers or for extending studio failover redundancy across multiple data centers.
