Omnia.11 is available in FM+HD with separate processing paths for FM or HD/DRM and FM without HD/DRM. The FM-only model is upgradeable to FM/HD at a later date. Switchable Single Sideband Suppressed Carrier (SSBSC) technology for potential reduction of multipath is a standard feature. A front panel touch screen GUI, on a 10.5″ diagonal screen, provides ease of use and enhanced metering and diagnostics. Remote access is available via any web browser. Livewire, AES/EBU digital and analog I/O are standard. Fanless cooling. Rugged 4 RU chassis.
Omnia.11s now ship with the G-Force Dynamics Engine standard. G-Force is also available as an optional Plug-In for Omnia.11 units already in the field. Designed by Frank Foti and Cornelius Gould, Omnia.11 with G-Force represents a significant update to Omnia.11’s dynamics—so significant, in fact, that Omnia has updated the GUI to a vivid cobalt blue. It sounds even better than it looks thanks to a dynamics processing framework that enables the Omnia.11 to set the overall EQ for signature consistency, making it sound cleaner, clearer, louder, more consistent, more open, and more pleasing. You hear the music. You hear the voice. You don’t hear the processor. Both FM+HD and FM-only models can be upgraded with the optional Perfect Declipper Plug-In, a revolutionary new algorithm engineered by audio-processing legend Hans van Zutphen that restores clipped areas in audio recordings. This algorithm not only restores dynamics, but removes distortion.
G-Force™ Dynamics Engine – The G-Force Plug-In (which ships standard on all new Omnia.11 units and can be added as an optional upgrade for existing units in the field) enables Omnia.11 to handle rapidly changing, hyper-compressed source material better than ever with new, sophisticated improvements. The G-Force dynamics processing framework lets the Omnia.11 set the overall EQ for signature consistency, making it sound cleaner, clearer, louder, more consistent, more open, and more pleasing. You hear the music. You hear the voice. You don’t hear the processor.
“Pepino” Clipper – The latest FM final clipper from Frank Foti, custom-engineered to take G-Force Dynamics to the next level. Includes “Pepino Clipper Mode 2,” which preserves brightness at aggressive clipping levels
Transient Detail Enhancer – In the dynamics section – smarter more powerful RMS control in the AGCs, producing stable solid increase in loudness to match the performance of Pepino.
Solar Plexus – For deep, tight bass that you can feel!
Unified FM/HD Bass Clipper – Improves audio consistency between the FM and HD channels ad overall bass quality.
1 Louder – To gain that extra db of loudness.
Intelligent Ultra-Multiband Limiter System – Self-adjusting attack/release functions guarantee crystal clear music and voice. The limiters are self-adapting and can tune themselves to the activity of the AGC section on the fly, providing more powerful and transparent limiter action than possible before. Makes adjustment of limiters a breeze!
Bass Management – Manages harmonics for a natural and undistorted bottom end.
Ultra LoIMD Distortion Controlled Clipper System – Dramatically reduces intermodulation distortion (IMD) for more loudness headroom.
MPX Composite Baseband Over AES (Omnia Direct) – Output of the Omnia.11’s stereo generator can be coupled directly to the modulator of the transmitter’s exciter. This enables the exciter to modulate with more precision and clarity.
Perfect Declipper Plug-In (Optional) – A revolutionary new algorithm to restore clipped segments and remove distortion in aggressively mastered audio recordings results in a clearer, more open texture that also gives more flexibly with processing choices. (Must be running v3.0 and G-Force.)
SSBSC Technology – Omnia.11 Single Sideband Suppressed Carrier (SSBSC) technology may reduce multipath distortion.
Extra Wide Touchscreen – 10.5″ diagonal screen clearly shows all controls.
Looks Cool and Stays Cool – Military-grade, fanless industrial design stays cool with heatsinks in rugged chassis.
Presets – Always updating, always evolving, Omnia engineers are constantly striving to provide new and powerful presents. From the best ears in the industry, find your custom sound easier than ever.
Non-linear Crosstalk: > -80 dB, main to sub or sub to main channel (referenced to 100% modulation).
38 kHz Suppression: > 70 dB (referenced to 100% modulation).
76 kHz Suppression: > 80 dB (referenced to 100% modulation).
Pilot Protection: > -65 dB relative to 9% pilot injection, ± 1 kHz.
57 kHz (RDS/RBDS) Protection: better than -50 dB.
Connectors: Two EMI suppressed female BNC, floating over chassis ground
Maximum Load Capacitance: 5nF (at 10 ohms source impedance).
Maximum cable length: 100 feet/30 meters RG-58A/U.
Analog Audio Input
Left/Right Stereo. Electronically balanced.
Input impedance 10k ohms resistive.
Maximum Input Level: +22 dBu.
Nominal Input Level: +4dBu, which nets a -18dBFS input meterreading on a steady-state signal when the Input Gain controlis set to 0.0dB. Program material with a nominal average level(VU reading) of +4dBu will typically produce peak readings on the input meter in the range of -12 dBFS to -6dBFS. This is the correct operating level.
Crystal Semiconductor CS5361, 24 bit 128x over-sampled delta-sigma converter with linear-phase anti-aliasing filter. Pre-ADCanti-alias filter, with high-pass filter at <10 Hz.

Output Impedance 20 ohms.
Minimum load Impedance: 600 ohms.
Output Level adjustable from -2 dBu to +22dBu peak in 0.1dB steps.
