Artel, Wheatstone Team On Live Remote Production



Artel Video Systems, the provider of real-time multimedia delivery solutions, has teamed up with broadcast audio IP networking provider Wheatstone on the end-to-end connectivity of live remote production. 

Live remote production, or “at-home production,” is a growing trend due to the operating efficiencies associated with having less equipment and staff on site at remote locations.

Working in partnership, Wheatstone and Artel demonstrated at the 2017 NAB Show how broadcasters can control audio services remotely and in real time. Artel’s InfinityLink broadcast media transport chassis provided the Ethernet links between Wheatstone’s foosball sporting event and the IP audio console in booth N6531, as well as the fiber link to the Artel booth N4511 a few aisles away.

On the same bidirectional fiber link, feed from a GoPro on a drone in the Artel booth was networked into the WheatNet-IP using an I/O BLADE.

Wheatstone’s WheatNet-IP is an AES67-compatible network of virtual audio services that includes audio routing, control, mixing, and processing.

“This is very timely as broadcasters continue to strive for efficiencies in their operations,” said Rafael Fonseca, Artel’s VP/Product Management. “We are excited to be teaming up with Wheatstone to demonstrate the versatility and flexibility in our solutions for remote production.”
