“Major Improvement” says SE Regional Director Of Engineering
17 August 2011
We spoke to Robert Combs the other day, the Southeastern U.S. Regional Director of Engineering for Cumulus Broadcasting, who just upgraded his Omnia ONE at WJCL Savannah to the 5-band version.
“WJCL is a country station, and the music on the format features a lot of real instruments. With the 5-band upgrade, you can really hear the high-hats and cymbals and the strings of the guitars so much clearer”, Robert remarked. “I have many Omnia ONEs at various stations in my region, and the five band upgrade has taken a great product and made it even better.”
Robert went on to say: “They did fine work with the presets. I pretty much just went with one, and it was just right. Great job!”
You don't have to compromise FM audio performance if your budget doesn't allow for a top-of-the-line processor. Utilizing the latest advances in DSP hardware and manufacturing techniques, the Omnia.ONE FM brings you a full five-band FM processor in a single rack space package. Omnia.ONE FM features the same processing topology that made the original Omnia FM famous, a Wide-band AGC / Leveler followed by a four-band AGC and separate (not integrated) four-band limiter section utilizing a shared precision crossover.
Rounding out the processing is Omnia's advanced pre-emphasized final limiter / clipper......the same that is used in the Omnia 5EX / 6EX. It is what really separates Omnia from the "copycat" competition. Also: a newly designed digital stereo generator with SCA convenience input and 19kHz pilot output for synchronization to external RDS generators.
And don’t forget Livewire capability. Omnia ONE connects directly to Axia Livewire digital audio networks, allowing input, output, and control to be consolidated on a single Ethernet connector for simplified setup and easy audio routing.
And remember: If you have an older Omnia ONE, you can upgrade to the latest 5-band software as a courtesy.
Omnia, a Telos company, is world-renowned for its digital audio signal processing expertise. Omnia audio processors for FM, AM, TV, HD Radio & DAB, Internet, and audio production are setting new standards for professional audio quality.
