Robert Hensler, VP of Engineering for Colorado Public Radio, recently needed to address the HD processing of CPR's AM station KVOQ, Denver.
After examining numerous options, his solution was to upgrade to an Omnia ONE Multicast.
"It was the Sensus™ technology in the Omnia ONE which made the difference" said Robert. "It is especially challenging to deal with the reduced bitrate of the AM station, and the Omnia ONE is by far the best option out there. The setup was easy. We went with a standard preset and were up and running in no time. We are big fans of Omnia processing solutions at Colorado Public Radio, and the Omnia ONE's outstanding results on KVOQ 's HD channel comes as no surprise to us".
An Omnia exclusive technology, SENSUS minimizes artifacts as well as restores the fullness and depth that bit-reduction steals. Our DSP gurus teamed up with the codec experts at Telos, the folks who introduced broadcasters to MP3 and MPEG AAC, and together, they developed SENSUS, a unique way of processing your audio to pre-condition it for HD Radio multicasting, specifically tailoring it for the bitrate that you will be using.
