Digital composite interface
In pursuit of the fully digital transmission chain that doesn't sacrifice loudness, Omnia is working with Nautel to introduce Omnia Direct, fully digital composite interface. The technology is initially available in the Omnia.11 and Nautel NV series transmitters. To replace an analog composite signal and avoid the A/D conversion used to create discrete left/right inputs to a digital exciter, the Omnia Direct interface uses a single AES3 cable between the Omnia 11 and the Nautel NV transmitter to carry the baseband signal in digital form. This 100 percent digital path eliminates the noise and distortion of A/D converters and reduces potential overshoots, while ensuring full FCC mask compliance.

What the judges had to say:
"Good effort on further identifying the weaker points of the processing chain."
"I like having another way to put the processing back at the studio with a digital link."
