Getting Started - Audio Connections - AoIP (Axia)

This article will walk through using Audio Over IP (AoIP) in order to send audio to the Streaming Transmitter versus the XLR or RCA cables if you are using either Axia Livewire, or Wheatstone Wheatnet-IP. Once your streaming transmitter is online (using the Eth1 port on the back of the transmitter), you will connect Eth2 to your AoIP network. You can now send the following information to Futuri VIP Support so that we can configure the AoIP integration:

  • Whether you are using "LiveWire" or "Wheatnet-IP".
  • The Static IP address and subnet on your AoIP network (that we will be assigning to Eth2).
  • The channel we should use to listen to audio.
  • If your station will be using Futuri POST, we will also require the IP address of your console (used to listen for mic/fader activity).
  • The channel numbers and priority of your microphones. (we support up to four microphone channels).

If you are interested in streaming immediately but are not ready to use an AoIP network at this time, you can begin with an analog input (using the XLR/RCA breakout cable that was included in the shipment of your transmitter).

Follow the link below specific to your transmitter model:

Gen4 Transmitters

SINGLE STREAM (SST)

MULTI-STREAM (MST)

Single Stream (SST) does NOT have a separate NIC for AoIP. If you have
separate networks for streaming, automation and AoIP, it will be necessary to have a USB Ethernet adapter.
  • The Eth2 should be used for the AoIP and the USB adapter should be use for the automation system connection if necessary.
  • From the GUI Menu, select the Gray Gear in the upper right corner and configure Eth2 with an address on your AoIP network.

After you have saved the information, return to the Main Menu and select the station to display the orange settings icon.

  • Click the "Settings" icon.
  • From Audio Input, select "AoIP" (Set to "Input Type").
  • Enter the channel number for the audio.
  • Click "Save".


Note: Futuri requires a "Standard Stereo" feed, NOT a "Live Stream" feed. The "Live Stream" feed will result in skips and drops in audio.


Multi-Stream (MST) has a dedicated NIC for AoIP.
  • From the GUI Menu, select the Grey Gear in the upper right corner and configure Eth3 with an address on your AoIP network.
After you have saved the information, return to the Main Menu and select the station to display the orange settings icon.
  • Click the "Settings Icon".
  • From the Audio Input, select "AoIP" (Set to "Input Type").
  • Enter the channel number for the audio.
  • Click "Save".


Note: Futuri requires a "Standard Stereo" feed, NOT a "Live Stream" feed. The "Live Stream" feed will result in skips, and drops in audio.




Gen3 Transmitters

This section of the article will walk you through using Audio over IP in order to send audio to the Streaming Transmitter versus the "XLR" or "RCA" cables if you are using either Axia Livewire. Once your streaming transmitter is online (using the Eth1 port on the back of the transmitter), you will connect Eth2 to your AoIP network. You can now send the following information to Futuri VIP Support so that we can configure the AoIP integration.

  • Are you using "LiveWire".
  • The Static IP address and subnet on your AoIP network (that we will be assigning to Eth2).
  • The channel we should use the listen to the audio.
  • If your station will be using Futuri POST, we will also require the IP address of your console (used to listen for mic/fader activity).
  • The channel numbers and priority of your microphone. (we support up to four microphone channels).
