Cornelius Gould, Geoff Steadman, and Rob Dye sound off on creating the world’s best-sounding 1RU broadcast audio processor, the newly released Omnia VOLT.
Omnia VOLT is a 1RU processor like Omnia ONE. What is the difference between the two?
VOLT shares some technology with the ONE, including some time-tested circuit design including I/O hardened for harsh environments. That's where the similarity ends. VOLT’s new software framework represents a major step forward from the ONE in terms of sound, functionality, and value. VOLT has capabilities we just could not fit in the ONE, like a fifth-band AGC, interactive crossovers, Stereo Enhancer, patch points for watermarking, HTML-5 GUI, and our new QuickTweak system; the list goes on. VOLT will take over as our main 1RU processor offering, and maintains the price point of the ONE. The ONE is a great act to follow. With more than 13,000 units installed, it is the best-selling audio processor ever made, and we’ll continue to sell it for some time. VOLT carries on that rugged, built-like-a-tank tradition. Omnia fans are going to love it, and others will be won over.Read More
NAB 2019 held a lot of excitement, innovation, and promise for the future of audio, and that was reflected greatly in the Telos Alliance booths for both Radio and Television. NAB is a wrap, but we wanted to take a moment to shine a light on one of the newest breakthroughs for Telos Alliance that made its debut at the show: the much-anticipated Omnia MPX Node.Read More
This NAB was one for the books. Telos Alliance won three awards for new products, partied like Rock Stars at the top of the Strat, started a band which had its first gig, and ended the show in legendary Telos Alliance style during the last nine minutes of the show (and no, we weren't escorted off the show floor by security this year!). Read on to learn more....Read More

Welcome to the first installment of my new blog series, Processing with the Pros.—created to help you sculpt your sound with insider tech tips from the processing experts here at Omnia. This first edition, we're talking microphone processing. Let’s begin!
First off, always remember that whatever the microphone processor does, the on-air processing will take the result, and magnify it. So, a little bit of adjustment on the microphone processor goes a long way on-air. Both Frank Foti and I have had great success with making DJs sound bigger than life with just the simplest and slightest changes to the microphone end of things.Read More
How the Windesheim University of Applied Sciences creates ambiance using AoIP!

There is much discussion in countless venues about radio embracing its digital future, but there is one key part of the discussion that is being left out: creating digital-friendly broadcast facilities.
