The Telos Alliance Unveils New OmniaSST Broadcast Audio Software
The Telos Alliance has announced that its new OmniaSST broadcast audio software is now available.
OmniaSST was designed by audio processing expert Hans van Zutphen in conjunction with Team Omnia.
This full-featured software transforms Windows PCs into Omnia audio processors. Based on a processing engine designed by Zutphen, OmniaSST is a processor that supports the Telos Alliance’s µMPX codec. µMPX, a specialized codec purpose-built for FM radio, is able to transport high-quality Multiplexed FM signals over a small 320kbps data pipe, slashing bandwidth requirements up to 83%. Reduced data requirements mean high-quality multiplexed audio and RDS signals can be directly routed over IP from a processor to a decoder application, opening possibilities for efficient MPX audio transport.
Omnia SST is the only processor with the 3 Ds for a broadcaster’s audio needs: Declipper, Delossifer, and Dehummer. With Declipper, OmniaSST repairs incoming audio, optimizing it before it hits compression, limiting, and final processing stages. Delossifer repairs the sound of lossy compressed audio such as MPEG2/MP3 material. Dehummer removes unwanted sounds such as 50/60 Hz hum from bad cables. These pre-processing tools result in clean and open sound.
OmniaSST includes purpose-built Omnia presets, FM pre-emphasis, stereo and RDS encoding, and shares the same FM reception-improving composite final clipper as found on the Omnia.9SG. Using an i7 class processor, latency can be reduced to as low as 5ms. Finally, a streamlined GUI means intuitive operation.
Omnia SST is sold bundled with an integrated µMPX encoder and a single µMPX decoder license and retails for $1,395. Additional µMPX decoder licenses (retail $395) are required to transport composite audio to more than one PC. Omnia SST may also be purchased as a standalone processor (no µMPX capability) for $995. Additionally, µMPX send/receive software may be purchased as standalone components using command line driven Windows applications.
If ordering component µMPX applications, users should be certain to order both Encode and Decode licenses ($395 each). Those interested in OmniaSST processing can demo it for free by visiting TelosAlliance.com/Omnia/Omnia-SST.
