Nixer Pro Audio has announced the WL64-4 base unit for monitoring and mixing of Audio-over-IP (AoIP) sources from a Dante or Ravenna network. The WL64-4 connects wirelessly to four iPad tablets as standard whereby each operator can select and listen to sources independently, as well as creating their own individual mixes.

Nixer Pro Audio WL64-4 base u‘This solution makes it much easier and quicker to identify audio sources using pictures and text displayed on an iPad,’ says Nixer Pro Audio founder and CEO, Nick Fletcher. ‘And, because up to four iPads can be simultaneously connected to a single WL64-4, it’s a cost-effective solution when it comes to monitoring and mixing sources during live events or reality TV shows, as well as audio logging for postproduction package creation.’

The system wirelessly streams ausio to each iPad for local monitoring, freeing a director or producer from a dedicated hardware front panel display and equipment rack. An intuitive user interface also enables non-specialist operators to monitor and mix audio sources with minimal or no training.

Each iPad has audio streamed wirelessly and is available on the internal speakers, headphone output or via Bluetooth. Users can add ‘local’ pictures and source names to each audio channel for easy and quick identification of performers, talent and other audio sources, ideal in environments such as reality TV shows, TV game shows or live sports where contestants and commentators change frequently.

Using a single WL64-4 base unit, up to four operators can create their own individual mixes on an iPad, which are then also made available on the Dante or Ravenna AoIP network.

‘Away from traditional broadcast applications, the combined solution also opens up new capabilities in other sectors, including education – for example, university hospitals where audio from different operating theatres, surgeons or lecturers can be accessed – for live streaming or recording,’ Fletcher says. ‘Political conferences and corporate media organisations that require audio monitoring and mixing of multiple speakers is another use case. We believe this solution will inspire a host of new applications and provide efficiencies for many different industries.’

Alongside the WL64-4, the company is offering an enhanced Nixer Remote App, adding features identified through operational feedback from high profile beta testing on customer productions during the summer.
