Don't Let Bad Sound Bring Your Station Down!

Posted by Dave Sarkies on May 2, 2018 12:00:00 PM

When it comes to winning on the air and via streaming, your broadcast audio processor needs to do one thing, and do it really, really well: Make your station sound incredible. It doesn't matter how many bells and whistles your audio processor has, in the end, your listeners don't care about anything but the quality of your content. That means more than simply creating compelling programming. It is about allowing that content to sounds its absolute best. Crisper, clearer, cleaner, and louder, with less distortion and listener fatigue. So how do you accomplish that? With Omnia, of course.

Trending: Optimize Your Streams for Smart Speakers with Telos Z/IPStream R/2

Posted by Dave Sarkies on May 2, 2018 12:00:00 PM

“Some broadcasters aren’t paying enough attention to their streams,” says David Bialik, Director of Stream Operations for Entercom. “Broadcasters want to make a product advertisers want to sponsor, so delivering a quality product with quality audio is a must. We want to make sure the listener does not want to change the stream, or even adjust the volume for that matter.”

How to achieve this? David, who’s something of a streaming audio authority, having worked on a variety of streaming projects over the years, suggests the Telos Z/IPStream R/2.

Top Reasons to Start Your Facility's Transition to AoIP

Posted by Dave Sarkies on Apr 25, 2018 12:00:00 PM

Telos Alliance invented AoIP for broadcast in 2003 when we introduced Livewire, which has since become the foundation for our Axia brand, and today, broadcasters across the globe use Axia products, powered by Livewire, in thousands of AoIP studios worldwide.

Broadcasters are now beginning to understand the benefit of the AES67 interoperability standard (based largely on our Livewire protocol), which is to help them proceed confidently into the future of broadcast using AoIP as a backbone. With AoIP infrastructure and AES67, equipment from multiple manufacturers is interoperable. Clearly, now is the time to engage AoIP at all levels of your broadcast workflow.

New Clipper and More in Omnia.11 Broadcast Audio Processor Update! 

Posted by Dave Sarkies on Mar 29, 2018 11:04:38 AM

When it comes to getting listeners to tune in all day long, great sound is what matters most. But with technology moving at breakneck speed, hardware can become outdated quickly, with many manufacturers requiring you to purchase a whole new processor once technology is improved, quickly rendering their own products obsolete. Omnia engineers are always looking for ways to supercharge their processors with improvements and features that benefit all users. Instead of making customers buy a whole new processor, Omnia offers free and low-cost software upgrades, actually making customers’ machines better over time, paying dividends on customers’ investment in Omnia processors.
