Omnia.11 receives v3.0 update
Telos Alliance has made the Version 3.0 software for the Omnia.11 available as a downloadable field update. The new update offers a variety of features, such as static RDS while providing a platform for the optional G-Force Engine plugin and the Perfect Declipper plugin.
Analogue, AES/EBU, or Livewire patch points can be used to integrate Voltair or Encoder into an audio-processing chain. Additionally a parametric EQ, including lo and hi shelf, replaces the limiter mixer section in the HD processing chain. With the new update, users can select whether the HD processing is fed with the signal that goes through the patch point or not, allowing for separate PPM watermarking of HD/digital sides. The Omnia.11’s bass section also includes upper subharmonic control of Solar Plexus over tonal balance. Compatibility with the Day-Sequerra Time Lock system has also been added in v3.0.
The ability to turbo-charge the Omnia.11 is now available, using the optional G-Force Dynamics engine. This plugin offers attack, release and ratio values that are programme adaptive, allowing users to set the characteristic elements of their sound. AGC sections also synchronise with programme material. Multiband Limiters now self-adapt to AGC activity and feature programme-controlled attack and release. An adjustment mode reportedly allows for more precise bass sculpting, with an intelligent active bass clipper system reportedly allowing a more full power from the bass enhancement scheme. The new bass-management system offers broadcasters the ability to adjust the products low end sub-system using a single knob.
