Wheatstone Central to CKUA's Epic Move

Wheatstone Central to CKUA's Epic Move

CKUAFor the CKUA project, we set up our WheatNet-IP AoIP networking around a central production studio surrounded by control rooms, voice booths and newsrooms that share I/0 and line-of-sight between them.

Included in the WheatNet-IP are full network control and access from the LX-24s, so announcers can pull up sounders and source feeds from all over the complex – especially that vintage library, which CKUA now has on 67 terabytes of storage. CKUA is one of the few remaining stations that still gives its on-air hosts free choice in programming.  

Our equipment list included four Wheatstone LX-24’s, six Audioarts IP-12 surfaces, two SideBoard surfaces and 20 some WheatNet-IP BLADEs, or IP access nodes, to tie it all together. There’s not a soundcard in the entire, three-floor facility.  Kris Rodts, Director of Engineering, IT, and Facilities for CKUA, gives all the details in the cover story of the June issue of Radio magazine.
