Telos Alliance Updates Omnia Volt Audio Processor

Telos Alliance has announced a free v2.0 update for its broadcast audio processor, Omnia Volt.

It’s been nearly three years since  Telos Alliance introduced the Omnia Volt, the successor to the best-selling processor of all time, Omnia One. Omnia users have put more than 2,200 Volts on the air around the world. Customer feedback since the product's introduction served as the inspiration for version 2.0.

Highlights include:

Reimagined Factory Presets
When Volt was created, the goal was for it to be fast and easy to set up, with minimal adjustments needed to get the right sound dialed in. The QuickTweak adjustment feature was Omnia’s solution, and it continues to win fans for simplifying the complex art of tuning processing. With v2.0’s new complement of factory presets, QuickTweak’s “starting point” control positions have never been more powerful.

Changes to Volt preset offerings have been created for all software versions. Telos Alliance has combined constructive feedback, custom preset development for key customers, and creative input from worldwide power users in this latest version. The company has completely revamped Omnia Volt’s FM factory preset list, carefully revising nearly a dozen of the most popular original presets to make them sound smoother and more open, but with no significant loss in loudness. Eight brand-new FM presets have also been added. Preset offerings have been expanded and refined for HD/DAB and AM versions as well. The Volt has never sounded better, and the out-of-box experience for customers who want to “rack and go” is the best in the business.

Improved ITU-R BS.412 Performance
Customers in countries requiring the use of BS.412 power limiting will find significant sonic improvements in the FM version of Volt 2.0, with nine revised or brand-new dedicated factory BS.412 presets. These presets make the most of the allotted deviation without the audible artifacts sometimes heard with BS.412 limiters. Volt’s FM interface has been revised with the integration of a new BS.412 Drive control to help customers more easily tune how hard to lean on the BS.412 limiter.

SNMP for All Configurations
Customers have made it clear that SNMP is no longer a want, but a need. Telos Alliance introduced SNMP for the FM version of VOLT in the last update (v1.3). Volt 2.0 brings SNMP to the HD Pro, AM, and SG versions as well.

Port Forwarding
Customers who have multiple Omnia Volts on their network and prefer to use a single external IP address can now assign a unique port for each Volt and take advantage of the security benefits and conveniences of port forwarding.

Since the product was launched, Volt has allowed a single 1RU hardware platform to serve as a processor for FM, HD/DAB, streaming, AM, or as a standalone stereo generator via free firmware packages. The free software download are available now on Telos Alliance’s Volt 2.0 page.
