Omnia is set to debut its Omnia Multicast audio processor with Sensus DSP technology, which the company says addresses the issue of unwanted "codec artifacts" that are caused by slicing the bit stream into smaller pieces and which it says appear if dynamics processing is not adapted to multicast's low bit rates.
Features include a 48 kHz, 24-bit audio processing platform with up to 384 kHz internal sampling rate; three-band dynamic peak limiter with feed-forward/feedback design, intermodulation distortion reduction and wideband AGC; and Omnia Bass Management EQ with up to 12 dB of bass boost.
Remote control is available via serial, optional Ethernet or optional dial-up connections. Omnia Multicast also accepts digital inputs from 32 kHz to 96 kHz.
Sensus is a suite of audio enhancement tools for multicast, developed in part with sister company Telos Systems. Omnia says it conditions audio for HD Radio multicast; and predicts the effects of the HD Radio codec and counters the problems, improving fidelity and reducing artifacts.
Omnia is in Booth 211.
