Mitigating JitterJitterDiagram

By Frank Mangiacotti, Systems Architect, Artel Video Systems

Video and audio over IP is all the rage now and while companies can benefit greatly from deploying all-IP or hybrid-IP/fiber networks, IP infrastructures come with their own set of issues. Jitter and latency are two of the most common problems hindering broadcast quality of audio and video transmissions over IP networks. IT and video engineers who understand the causes can take steps to reduce jitter and improve audio and video quality.

Indian Tribe Streams Out Rancheria Radio

VIDEO PREVIEW IMAGE

This month’s launch of Rancheria Radio by the Jackson Rancheria Band of Miwuk Indians reminded us once again that it really is all about good, local radio programming.

And stunning studios, of course.

Taking a page right out of the radio handbook, Rancheria Radio is streaming four very familiar formats: a Top-40, an alternative rock, an adult contemporary, and a country hits channel. A morning show even debuted July 17 on its mainstream Top-40 channel, known as Spin.

Never Underestimate the Power of On/Off

On Off

By Steve Carl, Technology Manager, KBAD 94.5

We have a Wheatstone system here at KBAD that's been through a lot. Just over two years ago, we opened in a rush... the plan kept changing, the layout was "fluid." Then, earlier this year, the studios were moved to the building next door. It was a single day move with very little prep time. But it was successful. The station sounded great, and the equipment held up like a champ.

But I never had time to hook up any tallies.

So recently, I decided to wire up the mic stand indicators and make all the talent happy with the cute little red lights. It all went smoother than expected... except for mic 1. No matter what I did, no matter how I did it, I couldn't get the WheatNet-IP BLADE to fire the LIO associated with that tally. I tried different logic commands. I logically assigned it however I could in the back end. I tried different BLADEs. Nothing.

TAKING THE AURA8-IP BEYOND BROADCASTING

By Scott Johnson

When you think of Wheatstone processing, you naturally think of broadcasting. But if an audio engineer tucked an Aura8-IP under his arm and left the station, would he find other uses for it? The answer, I found out recently, is a resounding yes! READ MORE

BLADEFEST PUTS BLADES THROUGH XTREME TESTS

IN DEPTH: THE NETWORK EDGE

Network EDGE is designed specifically as a translator between high-quality, low-latency studio networks such as WheatNet-IP and low-bandwidth STL connectivity options such as IP wireless radios.

IP wireless radios in the unlicensed 5 or 24 GHz range are priced from a few hundred to several thousand dollars.

Typically located at the studio, the Network EDGE interfaces directly to an IP wireless radio or commercial leased line for point-to-point connectivity between locations. Network EDGE can be used with any of the major IP radio brands currently on the market. When used within the WheatNet-IP system, with a Network EDGE at one end and a BLADE at the other, this opens up a world of possibilities based on BLADE I/O functionality such as silence detection, clip player, logic for automation, et al.

The Network EDGE includes local I/O (two AES and two stereo analog) and 12 programmable logic ports.
