Wheatstone: Layers Streaming Software Running on AWS.

Wheatstone demonstrates first practical use of cloud for broadcast applications.

New Bern, NC, USA - This NAB show, Wheatstone presents a cloud version of Layers Stream running on Amazon Web Services (AWS) as the first practical use of cloud for broadcast applications.

Layers Stream software includes stream provisioning, audio processing and metadata support. It is part of the Wheatstone Layers Software Suite, which also has software modules for running instances of FM/HD processing and mixing in cloud data centers such as AWS or on-premise servers.

Layers streaming instances running in AWS can be brought up rapidly and torn down rapidly and controlled through a browser-like user interface. Layers Stream includes audio processing designed specifically for streaming applications and Lua transformation filters to convert metadata input from any automation system into any required output format, including Triton Digital, for transmission to a CDN.

Wheatstone’s Layers Software Suite also has a Layers FM module and a Layers Mix module for radio and television. Layers Mix has a full-featured mix engine and Glass virtual mixers for the laptop, tablet or touchscreen with routing, logic, automixing and full native IP audio integration with major automation systems.

Layers modules can be used for remote or REMI applications between studios and cloud data centers or for extending studio failover redundancy across multiple cloud data centers. In the case of an on-prem server, Layers Software Suite can replace racks of processors, PCs and mix engines in the rack room.

Wheatstone will demonstrate Layers Stream and other cloud applications at NAB booth W3000, including new LXE console “cloud control” for producing shows in the cloud using Radio.Cloud Live Studio software.
