The WheatNet-IP PC driver enables broadcasters to play audio throughout the entire WheatNet-IP network of studios and PCs without the use of soundcards. Available in single-channel, four-channel, and eight-channel versions, the WheatNet-IP driver connects automation and other third-party systems to the network for streaming audio and any associated control logic, such as satellite network cues or for turning channels on or off.
This paper examines QoS, transport, protocols and other issues relevant to extending AoIP networks for sharing resources and controlling studios across a wider area network.

IP Audio Networks: Planning for Reliability A white paper by Andrew Calvanese, VP Engineering, Wheatstone Corporation
WheatNet-IP brings added convenience and simplicity to the configuration of a PC- based automation system such as RCS Zetta. Where once it was necessary to employ a specialized sound card, discrete analog or digital audio wiring, a logic interface, and control cabling, with WheatNet-IP’s PC Driver, we can accomplish all of this over a single Ethernet cable. The driver effectively acts as a WheatNet-IP BLADE, and lets the PC enjoy full access to all aspects of the WheatNet-IP intelligent network. The driver is available in versions that offer one, four, eight, twelve, and twenty-four stereo input and output channels. For situations where discrete outputs from Zetta players are desired, we recommend at least the four-channel version of the driver.
