With the new Omnia One, audio “pre-conditioning” helps to minimize the audible effects of bit reduction.
The Omnia One has a wideband gain rider plus four-band AGC and look-ahead final limiting, as well as feedback limiters for the lower two bands and feed-forward for the upper two bands. It is designed to meet the requirements of FM, AM, HD Radio, DAB and DRM transmission, as well as multicasting, satcasting and podcasting.
It offers time-aligned, dynamically flat, perfect-reconstruction crossovers, plus selectable phase rotation for vocal warmth and presence, and a full-featured I/O section.
Also on show at IBC 2007 will be the Omnia.8X, a multiple-instance, networked audio processor with eight discrete three-band stereo Omnia audio processors in a single 2 rackunit chassis. It enables simultaneous audio processing for multiple sources.
The Omnia.8X uses the Livewire standard to connect directly to Axia IP-Audio networks. When used in an Axia network, a single Cat6 connection carries eight stereo inputs, eight stereo outputs and remote control.
