5000 units shipped in just 2-1/2 years
Cleveland, OH, USA â€• Omnia Audio announces that the company has shipped 5,000 Omnia.One Audio Processors since its first delivery to radio stations just 2-1/2 years ago, making it one of the industryâ€™s most successful launches ever.
Omnia.One started life as an FM processor; now there are versions for FM analog, AM, Multicast/DAB, Internet streaming and studio processing, with the ability for the same hardware platform to be quickly reconfigured for a different requirement.
â€œOmnia.One ROCKS!,â€? yells Frank Foti, Omnia founder and president, to the proud Omnia design and manufacturing team in Cleveland.
Kirk Harnack, executive director, international business development for Telos-Omnia-Axia, while equally enthusiastic, commented â€œItâ€™s Omnia users â€“ our engineer friends and program directors â€“ who weâ€™re thanking right now! Clients are asking for that tight, bright and sexy Omnia sound in a box they can afford for all their stations, even for web streaming. The features and proven algorithms in all versions of Omnia.One really get the job done on air.â€?
Omnia.One evolved from the need for a low-cost 1RU broadcast processor that could hold its own with the big boys. Omniaâ€™s engineers examined their existing platform technologies and realized they could not be used to achieve the target price point. A new hardware platform was developed, with a smaller chassis, lower manufacturing cost, and a much more flexible DSP architecture that allowed for the DSP to be reconfigured in many different ways â€” serially, in parallel, or combination of both, and for information to be shared between all chips.
Omnia.One delivers the processing sound that made Omnia famous with its wideband leveler followed by a four-band AGC and a separate four-band limiter. Features include 24-bit processing and converters, analog, AES/EBU, and Livewire digital I/O, external sync input to synchronize output sample rate to external reference, full remote control via RJ45 Ethernet using Omnia.Oneâ€™s built-in web interface, and a built-in stereo headphone jack with level control. The dual software banks are updateable with a simple software download.
Omnia.One-FM includes Omniaâ€™s advanced pre-emphasized final limiter/clipper, integrated digital stereo generator with advanced peak control, two composite MPX outputs, SCA input and 19kHz output.
Omnia.One-AM provides NRSC- and EBU-compliant pre-emphasis with distortion-controlled low-pass filtering, limiting and clipping.
Omnia.One-Multicast is ideal for Internet streaming, HD, DAB, podcasting, satcasting, or any feed utilizing codecs. It features the exclusive Omnia SENSUSâ„¢ audio conditioning technology to minimize bit-reduction coding artifacts and the ultra low-distortion look-ahead final limiter optimized for codecs.
Omnia.One-StudioPro is a full bandwidth processor for microphones, program production level control and sound tailoring, with minimal delay and maximum audio quality.
Omnia, a Telos company, is world-renowned for its digital audio signal processing expertise. Omnia audio processors for FM, AM, HD Radio, DAB, Internet streaming and audio production are setting new standards for professional audio quality.
