Omnia Audio will debut the Omnia A/XE – Processed Audio Encoding for Windows, at the upcoming National Association of Broadcasters Convention in Las Vegas. The Omnia A/XE is the next generation of PC based audio processing software that blends the power and elegance of Omnia processing with advanced encoding capability.Omnia A/XE can process audio for a variety of applications, bitrate-reduced and linear. It runs silently as a background service, can be fully-managed and configured remotely with a web browser, and can process and encode multiple streams in various formats simultaneously. You can run Omnia A/XE on most "off-the-shelf" computers; the minimum requirements are Windows XP or later, Minimum 521MB RAM, 20MB free hard-drive space and a network card.
Omnia A/XE can encode directly to MP3 or AAC as well as feed a Shoutcast-style or Windows Media Server in the MP3 format, or feed Adobe Media server an AAC stream. You can also pair it with your existing Windows Media, Real, mpgPRO or MP3 streaming encoder.
The new Virtual Patch Cable allows Omnia A/XE to receive, process, and send audio to other software on the PC. You can “tag” the stream with "now-playing" information received from automation systems or another application. We've even built-in a scheduler to allow streams to be started and stopped at specific times, as well as processing presets can be changed on a schedule, perhaps processing the morning show differently than the afternoon one.
Omnia A/XE features adjustable wideband AGC with a three-band compressor/limiter, EQ and low-pass filter, and a precision look-ahead final limiter to prevent clipping. Come by and see the new Omnia A/XE on display at NAB, April 20-23, in booth N7620.
