IP-12 / IP-16Console/Control Surface

IP-12 and IP-16, we looked at the most affordable way for radio stations to hop into the IP audio world.  

Tapping into the power of WheatNet-IP Intelligent Network technology through the use of the included IP88CB a single rackspace unit Console Audio BLADE, its a perfect low-cost, small-footprint solution. AND its a great way to start a WheatNet-IP network.

The IP-12/IP-16 starts with a 12- or 16-fader control surface that looks and feels exactly like a self-contained console. Each of the input modules is equipped with an LED source name display and an A/B source selector whose sources can be set via a rotary encoder in the master section. Each input module has access to four program busses and has cue and talkback switches. A 100mm high-quality long-throw fader and lighted channel ON/OFF switches round out the module. 

The master section offers control room, studio, and headphone controls with source selection, as well as an onboard amplifier and headphone jack. Timer controls, a master talkback button, and a built-in cue speaker with level control are provided. There are four event switches and six programmable buttons available for user functions. 

The meter bridge has three stereo pairs of bright 30-segment horizontal LED bargraph meters, as well as an on-board timer with controls located in the master section.

For the IP-12 / IP-16, we’ve moved the logic, audio and interface to a single space rack unit we call the IP88CB Console Audio BLADE. This mix engine and I/O unit handles all the interfacing and heavy lifting. It connects to the IP-12/ IP-16 control surface via standard Ethernet.
