Strata 32 provides access to all resources in the network through a touchscreen interface

Packing 64 channels of IP audio into a 40-inch frame, Wheatstone’s Strata 32 audio console has been designed to suit ‘most’ television applications, being equally at home in the news room, in a remote van or a sports venue. Integrating with all the major production automation systems, the desk features dedicated faders for eight subgroups and two masters along with 32 physical faders that can be layered for 64 channels, while offering an IP audio mix engine and optional stagebox.

Powered by Wheatstone’s AES67-compatible WheatNet-IP audio network, Strata 32 provides access to all resources in the network through a touchscreen interface with menus for adjusting EQ and dynamics, setting talkback, configuring mix-minus feeds and bus matrices, muting mic groups and managing sources and destinations. Per-channel OLEDs display all relevant editing and operating functions at a glance.

With all I/O managed through the WheatNet-IP audio network, the Stata 32 is a compact board with no limitations with fixed connection points on the console chassis itself. Unrestricted routing means being able to have all faders available to dial up whatever source is needed; according to the manufacturer, the days of having to block out channels based on input type are a thing of the past, as is having to repurpose inputs because of physical chassis limitations.

The Wheatstone Gibraltar IP Mix Engine handles digital signal processing and provides advanced specialty features, such as a new automixer with four separate automix groups and onscreen weight control. The optional 4U StageBox One is for extending console I/O, providing 32 mic/line inputs, 16 analogue line outputs, and eight AES3 inputs and eight AES3 outputs, as well as 12 logic ports and dual Ethernet ports. StageBox One works with all WheatNet-IP audio networked consoles.

In addition to the new Strata console, the American manufacturer has created a multi-touch virtual console that mirrors the LXE reprogrammable control surface. Remote LXE mirrors the LXE hardware surface as a fully functional and studio-ready user interface, complete with like-for-like buttons and knobs, as well as familiar navigation and menuing options for setting EQ curves, filtering and other custom settings.

Working in conjunction with the LXE hardware surface, the virtual console provides complementary production functions for separate operators using an LXE board in the same location or in another location over an IP connection. Real-time fader tracking and live synchronisation of buttons and controls between the virtual surface and the physical LXE board offer an independent, yet shared, user experience for multiple operators.
