Omnia is debuting the Omnia.8X, which it describes as a multiple-channel, networked audio processor.

The company says it offers the power of eight three-band stereo Omnia audio processors in a 2 RU chassis, providing simultaneous processing for multiple sources around the broadcast plant. Each processor has three bands of AGC, a look-ahead final limiter and bass enhancement controls.

Omnia.8X uses the Livewire standard for networked audio over Ethernet, connecting to Axia IP-Audio Networks. When used as part of an Axia network, a CAT-6 connection carries eight stereo inputs, eight stereo outputs and remote control. For standalone use outside an Axia network, the company suggests pairing Omnia.8X with an Axia AES/EBU or analog audio node for audio I/O.

Applications include multi-band level control for remote codecs; sweetening caller audio from broadcast telephone systems; and on-demand processing for production rooms or dubbing stations.
