Chameleon technology pertains to getting the levels right and lowering IMD in the Dynamics area of Omnia.11. The AGC system uses true RMS control, which means that each of the individual AGC processors in the Omnia.11 "hears" the audio the way the human ear does. Historically, some processors have used weighted "peak" detectors which, responds to the electrical "peak" value of the audio. This peak value is then smoothed over and used to control the audio levels. This method definitely provides level control, but the "action" of these processors was typically unnatural. This wasn't much of an issue ten to fifteen years ago when CD mastering was much more relaxed. In today's world, it isn't unusual to have CD's that are just as processed (if not more) than a typical radio station. When an audio processor that used weighted peak control is used on this material, it will add more processing on top of what is already on the CD. This results in a very unpleasant sound on the air, and it is not at all what our ears are expecting from this audio material. If a processor were designed to "hear" audio the way we do, the reaction would be completely different. To accomplish this task, the level control could not be based on peak electrical levels, but rather on the average power level of the program material. This is the key to the Chameleon technology as used in the AGC section of the Omnia.11.
