5000 units shipped in just 2-1/2 yearsCleveland, OH, USA ― Omnia Audio announces that the company has shipped 5,000 Omnia.One Audio Processors since its first delivery to radio stations just 2-1/2 years ago, making it one of the industry’s most successful launches ever.Omnia.One started life as an FM processor; now there are versions for FM analog, AM, Multicast/DAB, Internet streaming and studio processing, with the ability for the same hardware platform to be quickly reconfigured for a different requirement. “Omnia.One ROCKS!,�? yells Frank Foti, Omnia founder and president, to the proud Omnia design and manufacturing team in Cleveland.Kirk Harnack, executive director, international business development for Telos-Omnia-Axia, while equally enthusiastic, commented “It’s Omnia users – our engineer friends and program directors – who we’re thanking right now! Clients are asking for that tight, bright and sexy Omnia sound in a box they can afford for all their stations, even for web streaming. The features and proven algorithms in all versions of Omnia.One really get the job done on air.�?About Omnia.OneOmnia.One evolved from the need for a low-cost 1RU broadcast processor that could hold its own with the big boys. Omnia’s engineers examined their existing platform technologies and realized they could not be used to achieve the target price point. A new hardware platform was developed, with a smaller chassis, lower manufacturing cost, and a much more flexible DSP architecture that allowed for the DSP to be reconfigured in many different ways — serially, in parallel, or combination of both, and for information to be shared between all chips. Omnia.One delivers the processing sound that made Omnia famous with its wideband leveler followed by a four-band AGC and a separate four-band limiter. Features include 24-bit processing and converters, analog, AES/EBU, and Livewire digital I/O, external sync input to synchronize output sample rate to external reference, full remote control via RJ45 Ethernet using Omnia.One’s built-in web interface, and a built-in stereo headphone jack with level control. The dual software banks are updateable with a simple software download.
