NEW BERN, N.C.�The PR&E brand is back with a new product, this time with new parent company Wheatstone. The audio equipment manufacturer announced it has begun production on the new PR&E DMX digital audio console. This is the first product in an expected new line of studio products to revive the PR&E brand, which Wheatstone acquired in February.

The DMX digital audio console is an IP networked broadcast studio console, with the new consoles adding IP audio routing as a studio add-on to the traditional PR&E model. The DMX will come in eight-fader and 16-fader control surfaces and are available with a 1RU DMX mix engine and 1RU Razor I/O module, which include 1GB Ethernet ports and RJ-45 interfaces.

The DMX, as well as future products, are set to replace PR&E�s legacy Vistamax and Envoy router lines and RMX consoles. The PR&E branded NetWave and Oasis consoles will continue to be manufactured by Wheatstone.

In addition, Wheatstone is also issuing an expanded technical support program for existing PR&E customers. The support program will offer 24/7 support, onsite troubleshooting, spare part kits and a parts inventory. Wheatstone says it will continue to honor currently active PR&E hardware warranties and related tech support.

DMX is expected to begin shipping by the end of the summer.
