New Zealand’s Largest Broadcaster Chooses Omnia-6fm for Three Networks
19 September 2003, Cleveland, OH USA
New Zealand's Radioworks NZ Ltd. has upgraded to Omnia-6 audio processing for three of its nationally-heard FM rock radio networks.
Radioworksis part of New Zealand’s largest broadcasting company, CanWest, a part of Winnipeg, Manitoba-based Canwest Global Communications. The new Omnia-6fm processors will be used for Radioworks’ “Rock FM”, “The Edge” and “Solid Gold FM” networks. Many Radioworks stations have already upgraded to Omnia processing; the newly purchased units join those in service at the “More FM” network, and at Radioworks owned-and-operated localradio outlets throughout New Zealand. The purchases were made through Auckland-based Omnia distributor Broadtech Services Ltd.
“Influential broadcasters are turning to Omnia,” observes Broadtech’s general manager, Graham Brown. “They tell us the sound is superior, and the ability to fine-tune the units and ‘get under the hood’ is first rate.”
Omnia processors are the choice of more than half of the Top 100-rated radio stations in the U.S. Internationally, Omnia processors are used by leading broadcasters such as Virgin Radio, NRJ, The BBC, Deutsche Telekom, RTL and Skyrock. Other well-known New Zealand radio stations that rely on Omnia processing include Auckland’s Radio Waatea, Te Reo Irrirangi O TeArawa in Rotorua, and Radio Nuku'alofa Tonga.
Omnia-6 audio processors are the world's first broadcast audio processor with 96kHz sampling and 24-bit resolution. Features include 5 bands of Automatic Gain Control, 6 bands of limiting and a fully useradjustable crossover network.
