Virtualization and containers simplified.
Talk to broadcasters these days and you'll find that virtually everyone (get it?) agrees that virtualization is "what's next." What they might not agree on is how to go about making it happen. Being helpful sorts, we've just announced a new platform that could be the simplest way yet to deploy virtual solutions.Read More
Dialog Intelligibility Gets A Big Boost With New Recommendation
“Hey, Turn That Down!”
You’ve experienced the problem: you set your TV volume at a level that’s comfortable for listening to the characters talk, only to grab the remote and frantically hit the “down” button when the action starts. Or, vice-versa: a volume level that's comfortable during loud scenes is too low for scenes with conversational dialog. Well, the latest update to the European Broadcasting Union’s R 128 recommendation, issued on November 10, 2023, takes us one step closer to solving the problem.
Welcome to another edition of "Ask The Omnia Guy", a continuing series of expert answers by the Omnia guy, Paul Kriegler, to real-world questions from our electronic mailbag. This time, an Omnia user from the USA asks:
What's the best setup for maintaining watermark integrity when using Voltair with Omnia.11?
Q: "Omnia Guy, we have Omnia.11’s in a big market and hear that we might get better watermark integrity using Voltair Mode and the Omnia.11’s insert points. Where should we start? Tips?" - TimRead More

A Familiar Voice From The Past
Folks reading this might know that before he launched the company that eventually became the Telos Alliance, Steve Church was a broadcaster - both an on-air personality and a radio engineer. The stations he worked for are legendary: WFMK Lansing, W4 Detroit, WFBQ Indianapolis, and WMMS Cleveland, where (in addition to being Chief Engineer) he hosted a late-night talk show called "Livewire" (name sound familiar?). And when Steve moved cross-town to WNCX, he took his show with him.Read More
New Telos Alliance products bring home the trophies
This has been a big year for new product introductions from the Telos Alliance brain trust, and we took an armload of them to IBC 2023. Once the engineers' ideas start flowing, it's hard to hold them back - so we packed up all those bright ideas and brought them with us to Amsterdam to see what you thought of them. Turns out you (and the trade press) were pretty impressed - we brought home 5 Best Of Show awards from 3 major publications.
Multiple games in multiple languages? No problem.
2,400 square meters of studio space. 16 sports commentary booths, 24 editing stations and 3 post-production studios feeding a Master Control room that sends content to multiple broadcast networks in multiple languages - this is the International Broadcast Centre of Italy's Lega Serie A Football (that's Soccer to us Yanks), the biggest sport in the country that gave us Ferrari, chianti and Michelangelo.Read More
You've probably seen Axia Quasar XR or Quasar SR mixing consoles at a tradeshow. You might have read about Quasar on our website, or maybe even watched a video, but there's nothing quite like hearing about a console from someone who's using it themselves.Read More
Looking Back on the Most Important NAB Show Ever
The 2023 NAB Show was different from any other in our industry’s history. When we all left the Las Vegas Convention Center in 2019, no one could have imagined it would be three years before we’d return. Things were starting to get back on track by 2022, but one of the most common sentiments about this year’s show was that it finally felt, for lack of a better word, “normal” again.
Last time on "Ask The Omnia Guy," we got the break down of AES192 vs. Analog on an MPX node. This month on "Ask the Omnia Guy," we get a bit of clarification on why you shouldn't use an Ariane or a Compellor in front of an Omnia.11 or Omnia.9. Let's just say Omnia is already at the top of the of the audio chain for a reason. Check out what Paul Kriegler has to say about it, after all, he is the "Omnia Guy."
Ask The Omnia Guy: Why does Omnia recommend removing any pre-processing in front of an Omnia.11 or 9?
Q: “We have Omnia.11’s and a couple of Omnia.9’s in our group. I keep hearing it’s not a good idea to have something like a Compellor or an Ariane in front of these newer processors. Why is that?Read More
