Omnia.9s are leaving the dock at Telos Alliance World Headquarters destined for stations around the world. Engineers who are firing them up on-air are getting pretty turned-on themselves!
Witness Bob Newberry, Clear Channel Birmingham, Alabama Market Engineering Manager.
"I have to say right off the bat that I have never been this excited about an audio processor in quite a while. Words like 'loud' and 'open' might seem mutually exclusive at first but the Omnia.9 achieves this goal splendidly. I have really enjoyed being able to hear and identify individual instruments in the sound field. The amazing thing is that this ability is not achieved at the expense of loudness."
And it's not just the sound that Bob is fired up about.
"Operationally, the Omnia.9 offers some interesting new features with the addition of patch points. These allow you to select and monitor each of the internal audio stages for a more in depth analysis at what is happening under the hood. I really appreciate the feature of being able to record the multiplexed audio output allowing me to make changes and then A-B the two recordings later from my laptop. Finally, no review would be complete without mentioning the fantastic 'de-clipper' that restores the waveforms of badly recorded music. This one feature would be worth the price!"
And speaking of features:
Omnia.9 features separate processing cores for FM and HD-1 and (optional) HD-2 and HD-3. It also supports encoding to MP3 (Mpeg-1 Layer 3), MP2 (Mpeg-1 Layer 2), AAC, HE-AAC (including RTSP/3G for streaming to mobile phones), Ogg Vorbis and WMA Pro formats. A 7" touchscreen front panel, full remote control, on-screen keyboard, dynamically updatable RDS encoder, selectable SSB (Single Sideband) stereo encoder, and adjustable dynamic bass clipping are part of the toolkit. HTTP push support for automation, such as dynamic RDS and streaming song titles, is also standard, as well as scheduled processing preset selection by daypart. Rounding out its feature set, Omnia.9 also has dual, independent power supplies for added reliability.
Omnia.9 is the processor that everyone is talking about.
Even Herman Cain can't stop saying "9…9…9"!
