7 April 2016, Cleveland, Ohio, USA
The Telos Alliance® —parent company of Omnia® Audio—announced today the launch of the Omnia.7AM audio processor, the new, feature-rich AM sibling to the popular Omnia.7FM processor. Omnia.7AM will be on display at NAB 2016 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in the Telos Alliance Booth #N1934, April 18-21, 2016.
"AM radio has always been a great source of news, information, sports, and other compelling content, but listenership has declined over the years due to higher fidelity media alternatives, plus an increase in environmental interference and noise—also concerns facing AM broadcasters," says Frank Foti, founder of Omnia and CEO of the Telos Alliance. "The Omnia.7AM is a tool specifically designed for the AM spectrum's unique challenges that AM broadcasters can start using immediately to improve their sound."
The Omnia.7AM employs some of the same features of the 7FM. All aspects of the processing infrastructure, bandwidth, and their output signals, however, have been specially engineered for maximum efficiency and performance within the AM spectrum. Omnia's Psychoacoustic Controlled Distortion Masking Clipper analyzes and masks distortion perceptible to the human ear. Dry Voice Detector applies processing for clearer voices on talk content, a big plus for AM talk radio. Additionally, proprietary Undo technology removes distortion and re-creates the peaks sliced from compressed digital music and content, restoring life, brilliance, and dynamic range.
The 7AM also allows broadcasters to refine their 'signature sound' with sonic tools like Real-Time Analyzers, Built-In Oscilloscopes, and FFTs. Three-stage wideband AGC with adjustable sidechain equalization; program-dependent two-to-five multiband AGCs and limiters; dual independent power supplies; and relay bypass for backup processor all combine to create a powerhouse AM processor.
The 7AM is easy to adjust from anywhere in the world thanks to full remote control and metering tools accessible from networked Windows-based PCs and tablets.
The Omnia.7AM will be on display at NAB 2016 in booth #N1934. Please contact Krissy Rushing for a booth appointment, or simply drop by to hear a live demo of the Omnia.7AM in action.
