Stereo Generator



In some applications, it might make more sense to locate the main audio processor at the studios while the stereo generator and limiter live out at the transmitter site. This might include cases where the STL uses discrete analog or AES audio rather than composite, or situations where one primary audio processor feeds multiple sites such as satellite distribution. Omnia.9sg brings the same acclaimed clipper, limiter, and stereo generator technology in the Omnia.9 to a standalone box—but that isn’t all it does…We brought a few other tricks from the Omnia.9 along for the ride.

New Updated Features:
• New Clipper Design-Audio processing architect Hans van Zutphen designed the new clipper now featured in the Omnia.9sg. This psychoacoustically controlled distortion-masking clipper is louder, cleaner, and more efficient. It takes into account how the human ear perceives distortion and uses that information to effectively mask it, leaving only clean, distortion-free audio on the air. The new clipper also uses less internal processing power from the CPU to get the job done faster, resulting in lower latency.
• Livewire+ AES67-This software update makes Omnia.9sg a Livewire+ AES67 product. It is now 100% AES67-compliant!
• Omina.9sg is processor agnostic-Making the processor you love even more lovable. That is, it can be used to improve the audio quality and loudness of any station with any processor from any manufacturer. If a station can’t afford a brand new top-of-the-line processor, or if they like the sound of the front end of their current processor but want better back-end performance, they can add a 9sg for less than half the cost of a new all-in-one box.
• Multiple Transmitter Sites Many FM broadcasters have their main transmitter at one tower site and their backup transmitter at another. A stereo generator is required at both transmitters, which often means two complete standalone processors. Installing an Omnia.9sg at each transmitter site allows a station to use the same main processor at the studio to feed both sites, which represents a potential cost savings and consistent processing between the main and auxiliary sites. This applies to applications where a common STL is shared between the sites or when individual STLs are used. In Europe, it is common for a national broadcaster to work from a single studio location and have dozens or even hundreds of transmitter sites located throughout the country. The appeal of having one main processor at the studio and an Omnia.9sg at each transmitter site works brilliantly on this larger scale as well. When configured with the local audio insertion option, these national broadcasters can also interrupt network content and insert localized content at each transmitter site such as local traffic, weather, or geo-targeted advertising.

Main Features:
• Full IP remote with remote audio streaming. Because transmitters are often located in hard-to-reach locations, full-featured remote access is critical.
• Built-in http server with push support for automation including dynamic RDS. This is important because RDS data are part of the composite signal.
• Optional RDS encoder supports UECP protocol, allowing each Omnia.9sg to be individually addressed to customize and localize RDS information.
• Selectable SSB (single sideband) stereo encoding makes SSB compatible with nearly all receivers.
• RF bandwidth controller reduces multipath distortion.
• ITU-R BS.412 power limiter for European countries.
• Auto Pilot turns off pilot for mono content, reducing noise, great for spoken word/news/talk/sports formats.
• Relay bypass including composite pass-through. Should Omnia.9sg fail or lose power, a backup standalone processor can be fed through it and be put on-air automatically and immediately.
• Built-in internal playback capability with processing. Should normal audio be lost, the built-in player in Omnia.9sg can immediately and automatically provide back-up content and audio processing until the problem is resolved.
• Optional local audio insertion allows each Omnia.9sg to interrupt normal program audio and insert local content such as traffic, weather, and geo-targeting advertising, with audio processing.
• “Omnia Toolbox” features including oscilloscope, FFT, and RTA, valuable signal-analysis tools built right into the product, eliminating the need for standalone engineering tools.
• Dual redundant power supplies. Back up if one supply fails. Each supply can be fed from a different electrical circuit; if one circuit fails, the unit stays on air.
• Two composite inputs, two composite outputs. A “hot” backup processor can be looped through the Omnia.9sg and be automatically and immediately placed on air should the 9sg fail or lose power; also makes it possible to use an external RDS encoder if desired.
