Omnia 9



Overview

FM or AM processing on demand is standard. Simultaneous FM+AM if programming is 100% simulcast and at same transmitter site. Studio output with very low latency for talent monitoring is also standard. Optional HD-1, HD-2, HD-3 processing and streaming/encoding, RDS. Dual path model available for two separate program feeds broadcasting on FM+FM, FM+AM or FM+FM+AM simulcast with HD output, IP-Streaming with separate processing and encoding and low latency studio processing, all built-in for both feeds.

Features

Exclusive “Undo” Technology - “Undo” is a two-step process that restores peaks and dynamic range to - and removes distortion from - source material that has been damaged by over-compression and clipping during the mastering process.

Psychoacoustically Controlled Distortion-Masking Clipper - Omnia.9’s final FM clipper takes into account how the human ear hears and perceives distortion and uses that information to effectively mask it, leaving only clean, distortion-free audio on the air.

Omnia® Toolbox - Every Omnia.9 comes with a “toolbox” that includes loudness metering, a digital oscilloscope, an FFT spectrum analyzer, and real time analyzer (RTA) to help you adjust your processing and “see what you’re hearing”.

Speaker Calibration - With the addition of a calibrated microphone, Omnia.9’s built-in real time analyzer (RTA), pink noise generator, and parametric equalizer can be used to calibrate any speaker system.

Dry Voice Detector - The dry voice detector is a selectable feature that helps eliminate the audible distortion sometimes evident on bare voice (voice with no music mixed under it) when very aggressive processing settings are used.

Remote Client - Omnia.9’s client software allows full remote control of the processor from any Windows-based PC or tablet, including touch screen devices, on the local network. The remote interface looks and functions just like the front panel screen.

Auto Pilot - A selectable feature that automatically turns off the 19kHz stereo pilot when Omnia.9 detects that the source material is mono, and turns it back on when the input is determined to be stereo, automatically gaining a 20 dB increase in signal to noise during mono programming.
