No one likes going “up the hill” to make those last few tweaks to the station’s audio chain. That’s avoided with the new Omnia.sg all-digital stereo generator, which puts the pieces of an FM station’s audio processing where they’re best suited—processing in the studio and stereo generation at the transmitter.
Situating the Omnia.sg at the transmitter site maintains the tight coupling between stereo generator and exciter, minimizing loudness-robbing overshoots. Because it uses proven digital technology pioneered in the popular Omnia.fm processor, Omnia.sg not only includes a digital stereo generator, but also a composite clipper for adding extra loudness and low-pass filter for interference-free subcarrier operation.
For maximum flexibility in accommodating studio-to-transmitter (STL) links, Omnia.sg accepts analog as well as digital inputs, utilizing onboard sample rate and A-to-D/D-to-A conversion. Dual-composite outputs are provided along with SCA loop-throughs for convenient hook-ups at the transmitter site.
Omnia.sg boasts a beautifully simple front panel interface for effortless setup and calibration. A lockout function is included to prevent inadvertent changes, as well as a BNC composite monitor point for easy testing and LED monitoring of input and output levels. Front panel status LEDs are duplicated on a rear panel connector, providing status outputs and remote control inputs. A silence warning is also included.
