The Telos Alliance®—leader in broadcast technology and parent company to Telos®, Omnia®, Axia®, 25-Seven®, Linear Acoustic®, and Minnetonka™—announced today that new Omnia.9 units are now shipping with a major update to the audio engine, making it sound better than ever. This update is also available as a software download (v3.18.99) for existing Omnia.9 users at no charge.
"When it comes to audio processing, Great Sound Matters Most, and the Omnia.9 is no exception. A year in the making, software v3.18.99 is the biggest sonic leap forward since the Omnia.9 was released! If you thought the 9 sounded amazing already, just wait until you hear the improvements to its audio engine," says Omnia's Geoff Steadman.
New Features Include:
- A major system rewrite to the audio engine, introducing a new, lower-latency clipper for both FM and AM
- A new, fully rewritten streaming engine now supports Shoutcast 2, FLAC and lossless streaming
- Integrated internal stream server
- Phase Correction with Mono Bass reduces multipath distortion
- Seamless preset switching, even between presets with major structural differences
- Optional µMPX Encoding. Omnia.9 is the first hardware processor to support this revolutionary codec. Full composite MPX over a 320kbps pipe
- Expanded SNMP features
- BS.412 MPX power limiter improved
- Shared processing path for AM+HD units (allowing them to share a watermark encoder)
- Improved internal performance (lower latency, monitoring, and RDS improvements)
- Enables Livewire+ AES67 for even more flexible I/O. Older Omnia.9 units require an MKII platform upgrade to enable Livewire+ AES67. Platform upgrades will be available by mid-July through Telos and authorized service centers
