IBC 2018 is a wrap. As our feet start to regain feeling, we want to take this opportunity to thank all those who visited us at IBC 2018.

Before starting Omnia, I was very lucky to have worked at a couple of extremely successful radio stations, WMMS-FM, Cleveland, and WHTZ-FM (Z-100), NYC, where we prided ourselves on being the best. Anything other than #1 in the ratings was not an option. The motivation for Omnia growing from ‘worst-to-first’ was highly influenced by Z-100’s historic (and never since duplicated) journey from ‘worst-to-first’ in only one ratings period, in 1983. For Omnia (now a part of The Telos Alliance) it took a little longer to dislodge the long-time leader.Read More

Much like the television industry at large, the requirements for TV audio continue to evolve and change, and keeping up can be a challenge. The number of content sources and file types are increasing; the number of formats, languages and edit variations is increasing; and the number of distribution channels is increasing. The only things not increasing are your resources and the amount of time allotted to get the job done!Read More

Smart Speaker Adoption
The Smart Audio Report from NPR and Edison Research counts 43 million Americans who own at least one smart speaker. First adopters of smart speakers say these devices are now their primary way of listening to audio. And while there are myriad choices for audio services available on smart speakers, they are becoming a significant replacement for AM/FM radios in the kitchen or bedroom. Some recent research is showing that radio’s most loyal listeners, the so-called “P1s,” are using smart speakers in significant numbers and for significant periods of time. There’s no doubt that radio broadcasters need to be available on these devices—and they need to sound good, perhaps better than competing services.Read More
