OMNEO media networking has been designed from the ground up to be based on open public standards which are freely available to all without restriction. OMNEO leads the way toward interoperability by utilizing standards from the IEEE and IETF for media transport and will comply with emerging standards, such as AVB.
The control and configuration component OCA has been openly published as a proposed standard and is on track to be standardized by the AES under the project designation X-210. OMNEO is able to utilize standard Ethernet and IT hardware or infrastructure, but will also be able to take advantage of AVB-enabled bridges as these become available.
The new RTS ADAM OMNEO interface cards transform the ADAM intercom system into a flexible, IP-based, AVBcompatible intercom network. OMNEO media networking architecture goes beyond traditional AVB solutions by incorporating both industry standard OCA control and IP audio. OMNEO will interoperate with AVB and Dante devices, ensuring future interconnectivity with a growing number of devices. ADAM OMNEO products open the door to deploy ADAM intercom systems over any standard IP-based network. Most importantly, with OMNEO users are not “locked in” to other vendors’ proprietary backbone infrastructure. This makes RTS the leading IP open network solution for professional production intercoms.
With RTS+OMNEO, such essential tasks as deploying intercom user stations, linking via trunking and interfacing to third party devices has now become easier and more flexible. The addition of ADAM OMNEO cards to any compatible ADAM system means even existing installations can be networked over standard IP hardware with high quality, ultra-low-latency audio.
The product range consists of the ADAM OMNEO card for the ADAM and ADAM-M intercom frames and a user station interface card for select RTS keypanel models. Both these cards fully update the connectivity of these RTS intercom products to be fully IP compatible.
