WaveCAST is built on a hardware-based audio DSP audio system architecture, allowing system optimization to achieve the highest quality audio experience for the particular audio stream being delivered. As a result, hearing assistance can be optimized for hearing loss, music can be optimized for high-fidelity playback, and voice can be set for maximum speech intelligibility. Custom pre-sets can also be established where tweaking is necessary for specific performance applications.

Professional audio inputs on the WaveCAST include 1/4" XLR connectors, phantom power and a line level output jack. In addition to multi-stage gain control inputs, the DSP features include AGC, limiters, high and low pass filter, and adjustable range compressor control. The 16-bit DAC provides a 48Khz sample rate for a smooth digital stream and minimizes the digital harshness that occurs in low-bit-rate DACs used in embedded computer-based assisted listening systems.

The new WaveCAST app provides an easy-to-use, intuitive user interface and will be available in iOS or Android. It features multi-channel discovery, allowing the app to automatically discover all WaveCAST units in the room and then select the desired channel. WaveCAST supports both unicast and multicast network configurations and can support up to 1500 streams, depending on proper network support.
