CLEVELAND, OH – 23 June 2016
The Telos Alliance®—parent company of Omnia® Audio—announced today that all Omnia.11 audio processors are now shipping standard with the company's new G-Force processing engine, which was previewed at this year's NAB in April. Additionally, any Omnia.11 purchased in 2016 is eligible for a free G-Force license (MSRP $985), which will be available within 60 days as a downloadable field upgrade. This upgrade will give current Omnia.11 customers a totally new Omnia processing engine, without the added expense of an entirely new box.
Designed by Telos Alliance CEO / Omnia Founder Frank Foti and Senior Algorithm Developer Cornelius Gould, G-Force represents a significant update to Omnia.11's dynamics—so significant, in fact, that Omnia has given the display an all-new graphic user interface.
It sounds even better than it looks thanks to a brand-new dynamics processing framework that enables the Omnia.11 to set the overall EQ for signature consistency, making it sound cleaner, clearer, louder, more consistent, more open, and more pleasing. You hear the music. You hear the voice. You don’t hear the processor.
"G-Force represents the current state-of-the-art in audio processing technology and is the ideal solution for those either looking to buy a high-performance broadcast audio processor for the first time or who want to take their current Omnia.11 processor to a new level of greatness," says Foti. "This is the best broadcast audio processor we've heard, and unlike competitors, we are not making our valued customers buy a whole new box to take advantage of these advancements. The option to upgrade older units to G-Force-level sound is something that can be accomplished for under a grand."
G-Force's highly refined density detection scheme means rock-solid performance across a wide range of recordings. Program adaptive attack, release, and ratio values let you set the characteristic elements of your signature sound and make audio acceleration and deceleration smoother than ever. A Makeup Threshold allows for gain management and control without sudden, audible swings. Additionally, AGC sections synchronize with program material. Multiband Limiters now self-adapt to the Multiband AGC activity and also feature program-controlled attack and release, actively reducing limiter-induced inter-mod distortion. Limiters are more responsive and active, yet remarkably transparent, even under extreme activity.
Finally, a new bass-management system allows broadcasters to adjust the Omnia.11's bass via a single knob. Advanced adjustment mode allows more precise bass sculpting, including Omnia's Solar Plexus bass enhancement feature. An intelligent active bass clipper system allows the full power of the new bass enhancement scheme to come through on the dial.
