Don't Let Bad Sound Bring Your Station Down!

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.

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

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 But with technology moving at breakneck speed, hardware can become outdated quickly, with many manufacturers requiring you to purchase a whole new processor once technology is improved, quickly rendering their own products obsolete.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.
