Wheatstone is highlighting a partnership with Radio.Cloud that it says has produced an integrated cloud environment combining program automation with AoIP control and routing. It calls this a first in radio.
“Together, the two offer a platform that integrates native AoIP with cloud-native automation for a large installed base of Wheatstone studios around the globe.”
Wheatstone provides the WheatNet-IP audio network ecosystem. Radio.Cloud contributes its browser-based Live Studio and cloud-native automation, which it said is the first cloud-native automation system certified as a partner of Amazon Web Services.
“By integrating Radio.Cloud’s Live Studio software with WheatNet-IP AoIP control and routing, broadcasters can control automation and studio functions — manipulating faders and other console controls — from either the Radio.Cloud interface or WheatNet-IP control surfaces,” Wheatstone stated in its announcement. “This means users will get a response either in the browser with a virtual console such as the Glass LXE and Remote LXE, or on the hardware itself.”
The announcement was made by Christian Brenner, CEO and founder of Radio.Cloud, and Dominic Giambo, technology manager for Wheatstone.
Brenner was quoted, “Radio.Cloud is fully dedicated to a cloud-native operation, but there are many cases where a hybrid model makes absolute sense.” Giambo said the partnership extends the reach of Wheatstone’s AoIP network “but it also moves us all a step closer to the future, where radio can be a lot more mobile and agile.”
The companies said they’re working on integrating Radio.Cloud with Wheatstone’s cloud Layers Software Suite to bring audio processing software to cloud data centers.
Both companies will exhibit at the NAB Show, Wheatstone in booth W3000, Radio.Cloud in W1773.
