Omnia Reveals Clear and Loud Audio with New Omnia.11 at NAB 2010

LAS VEGAS, NV ― Omnia Audio is breaking through the cluttered sound barrier with its latest product introduction, Omnia.11. Debuting at this year’s NAB show (Telos Booth C146), Omnia.11 represents years of research and development yielding a redesigned firmware platform, GUI and adjustments to every algorithm in the system creating a completely re-thought approach to processing. The firmware in Omnia.11 takes advantage of software resources never before available for this caliber of product. The results are dynamic algorithms that were once a pipe dream of the processing enthusiast. omnia11-top-front.jpg

“Omnia.11 is on-air processing testosterone with no body fat,� says Omnia President and Founder Frank Foti. “It’s pure audio, lean on distortion, yet full of punch, power and girth, with no nasty side-effects whatsoever. New material, old material, hip-hop, urban, rap, rock, country, classical, talk, religious — you name it, this is HGH (human growth hormone) for processing – say hello to Omnia.11! Instead of us making all the clichéd claims about how much better it sounds than such-n-such box, we’ll just leave that for others to make after they hear Omnia.11 and how it’s simply more revealing…period!� more

Telos Zephyr/IP Family Expands with Z/IP ONE

Remotes over IP networks, only $1,995.

CLEVELAND, OH — The Telos Zephyr line of IP codecs has grown again, with the addition of Z/IP ONE, a slim 1 RU codec designed to maximize audio quality from public IP networks and mobile phone data services, including connections behind NATs and firewalls.

Agile Connection Technology (ACT), a Telos exclusive, is the foundation for the Z/IP’s exceptional performance on real-world networks. When the network is functioning well, Z/IP provides the lowest possible delay and the highest possible fidelity. Should network conditions become challenging, the Z/IP ONE automatically lowers the bitrate and increases buffer length to ensure that the best possible audio quality gets to the studio with the least delay.

As with all Z/IP codecs, Z/IP ONE is wireless capable and can connect to IP networks via Wi-Fi, EVDO, and UMTS. Telos Z/IP Server service (free to Z/IP owners) helps overcome troublesome firewalls and NATs, as well as easily connect to other Z/IPs.

Z/IP ONE features include:
• Exclusive Agile Connection Technology which automatically senses network conditions and adapts codec performance to provide the best possible audio.
• Wide variety of high-performance audio codecs: AAC-ELD, AAC-HE, MPEG Layer 2, G.711, G.722 and linear PCM.
• Supports SIP 2.0 protocol and conforms to NACIP standards; works with VoIP devices and connections from compatible PBXs.
• 1 RU form factor is equally at home in a studio rack, remote kit or road case.
• Analog I/O plus Livewire™ port for one-click connection to Axia IP-Audio networks.
• Auto-ranging internal power supply for use worldwide.

Z/IP ONE joins the growing family of Telos IP codecs, which also includes the rackmount 2 RU Zephyr/IP and the Z/IP Mixer, which combines the versatility of the Zephyr/IP with the utility of a digital four-channel stereo mixer in a road-ready portable chassis. Zephyr/IP codecs produce superior audio for two-way applications over uncontrolled IP networks and mobile phone data services by dynamically adapting to the network and minimizing the effects of packet loss and jitter. Dynamic buffering, auto-varying bitrate functions, and high-efficiency codecs combine to produce excellent fidelity at low bitrates with nearly inaudible loss concealment.

See Z/IP ONE and the other advanced new Telos products at the 2010 NAB Show in Las Vegas — Central Hall, Booth #C146. For more information, contact Angi Roberson via email at angi@Telos-Systems.com, via phone at +1-216-241-7225, and visit Telos-Systems.com.

Telos Systems, headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio with offices in Europe, is a leading manufacturer of ISDN, coded audio and telephone interface products for talk-shows, teleconferencing, audio production, remote broadcasts, and intercom applications.
