Omnia adds GPS clock sync to Omnia.SG stereo generator
Upgrade option for existing users
June 9, 2011, Cleveland Ohio, USA
Omnia.SG, the standalone stereo generator from Omnia Audio, has been upgraded! Omnia.SG can now be ordered with a built-in GPS clock sync, designed to assist with the synchronization of stations that are on the same frequency, or on closely-spaced adjacent frequencies.
This synchronization is achieved through the use of a GPS receiver with a 10Mhz clock input, easily deployed at each station's transmitter site.
According to Omnia Marketing Manager Denny Sanders, "The GPS clock sync is used, for example, when a station puts a booster on the same frequency to fill behind a mountain or tall buildings which block the main transmitter, but is in the primary service area. Unless the stereo encoders are precisely synchronized at both transmitter sites, there will be distortion, noise, and the stereo pilot detector will switch back and forth between the two stations noisily, along with other annoying behavior when a listener is in a spot where both signals are receivable equally. The Omnia SG with clock sync option eliminates this problem by synchronizing the sites precisely via GPS."
Omnia.SG is a compact, 1RU FM stereo generator that lets you keep the on-air processor at the studio, where it's convenient, while keeping stereo generation at the transmitter, where it belongs. Designed to complement your existing audio processing, Omnia.SG is modeled after the same stereo generator used in Omnia audio processors Along with stereo generation, Omnia.sg provides a selectable composite clipper and base-band filter for crisp, clean loudness. It's the best of both worlds: clear, digital stereo generation and the convenience of locating your processing at the studio.
The Omnia.SG with GPS clock sync will list for $2,595.00 USD, but Omnia.SG units in current service are eligible for a factory upgrade to include the GPS sync functionality for just $400.00. Clients can contact Omnia Support via our website, OmniaAudio.com, to request an upgrade.
