New Omnia Forza Focuses on Streaming Quality

Processing software also will be useful for HD Radio and DAB users

Omnia Forza processing user screenTelos Alliance has rolled out a software-based approach to processing that targets HD, DAB and streaming audio applications.

Omnia Forza was announced by Omnia founder Frank Foti and Product Manager Geoff Steadman.

Foti said in the announcement that the percentage of listeners using streaming, HD Radio and DAB is increasing, and that the tool is intended to help stations pay more attention to that digital and streaming content.

Features include Omnia presets and a single-page user interface that uses “smart controls” to simplify access to multiple parameters. The company said this will help make the software useful to users who have less processing experience as well as audio veterans. Steadman called it “democratized technology.”

The company highlighted the software for fresh processing algorithms supporting its five-band design; Sensus codec conditioning for low-bitrate streams; and a LUFS target-driven ITU-R BS.1770 loudness controller useful to streaming audio applications.

Forza is available now as a software container and it will be a processing option in Z/IPStream X/2 and R/2 as part of a planned update to those products. A container-delivered FM version of Forza is in development.

Telos Alliance will be in Booth W3677 at the NAB Show.
