Series Two offers a broadcast ready feature set in a compact dual layer 16 channel control surface, compatible with both our IP and BRIDGE/Gibraltar based router platforms.

Unlike semi-pro recording or live reinforcement consoles, the new Series Two is an IP networked console that has the size, feel and module width that are conducive to fast-paced live production. Available in a 16-fader frame, the Series Two has a complete tally system, motorized faders, and true surround with up/down mixing between 5.1 and stereo, plus busses and mix-minuses galore (two main mix busses, four subgroups, up to 32 bus-minuses (N-1), 4 mix-minus busses, and two aux sends).

Like its slightly larger sibling, the 24-fader Series Four, this console is made to work with today’s production automation systems. Yet it has all the important broadcast-specific features, such as automatic studio muting, machine control logic, de-embedding inputs, 5.1 surround capability, balanced or unbalanced AES inputs, router integration, and flexible monitoring capability.

All input channels for the Series Two have 4-band parametric EQ sections, tunable high and low pass filters, and compressor/limiters, plus expander/gate and programmable delay for lip-sync correction.

And unlike sound reinforcement consoles, the new Series Two digital mixing console offers a direct bus-minus feed with IFB from each channel plus four front panel assignable mix-minus busses.

An IP networked console, the Series Two integrates seamlessly with production automation systems for changing routing or automatically setting a crossfade between inputs as the switcher or automation system cuts or dissolves between video sources. Faders can be mono, stereo or surround, unlike some semi-pro mixers.

 

WheatNet-IP Audio Network

The Series Two interfaces into the WheatNet-IP audio network, a fully integrated system that ships with all the audio tools, control functions, and network capabilities needed to take full advantage of IP audio. It is available with new Gibraltar IP Mix Engine for DSP resources and tying into the network. Wheatstone’s new Gibraltar IP Mix Engine can handle 1,024 channels of audio, giving Wheatstone IP consoles the ability to handle challenging productions. All the mixes generated by the Series Two can be routed to any available outputs on the audio network, including input faders on other network-connected control surfaces. Operators can assign any source of any type to any fader, and share I/O resources with other consoles in the network. This kind of power and modular flexibility provides the extra redundancy that is so critical to broadcast operations, with auto-failover DSP processing on the board and the kind of I/O connectors that stand up to the broadcast environment, not to mention easy touchscreen setup and operation.

The Series Two takes analog, AES, MADI, AoIP and HD/SDI input signals -- and can deliver any source or console bus to any destination in the broadcast network. It features a high-resolution multifunction touchscreen display for capturing information at a glance: metering, channel/bus assignments, and programmable control functions. A LKFS meter for loudness monitoring is also included in the main display.

The Series Two is priced comparably to semi-pro live sound/recording mixers but with all the necessary broadcast features included.
