It’s been nearly three years since Telos Alliance introduced Omnia VOLT, their entry-level processor and successor to the successful, ubiquitous Omnia ONE. Since then, over 2,200 VOLTS have been placed on the air around the world!
With that many installations Telos Alliance has receive a lot of customer feedback, which has inspired their latest and significant update to VOLT so far: Version 2.0.
VOLT’s shape-shifting software architecture allows this 1RU hardware platform to fill the processing needs of FM, AM, HD/DAB and streaming applications, as well as stand-alone stereo generator, simply by downloading and installing new firmware. You’ll find your free, fresh Version 2.0 update for every VOLT configuration available on the VOLT 2.0 Landing Page. Here are the highlights:
Improved Factory Presets
When Telos Alliance created VOLT, they wanted it to be fast and easy to set up, with minimal adjustments needed to get the right sound dialed in. The QuickTweak adjustment feature has been a tremendous hit, and continues to win fans for making the complex art of tuning processing simple. As Version 2.0 is ushered out the door, this is a reminder how much of a “killer app” QuickTweak is, and all the more so since this latest release gives you newer, better presets to use as a base.
Changes to the VOLT preset offerings were literally years in the making. Constructive feedback, custom preset development and offerings built for power users are combined and refined. The fm factory present list is completely revamped, 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. There’s also an additional eight brand-new FM presets. VOLT has never sounded better, and the out-of-box experience for user who want to “rack and go” is much improved.
Many of these revisions and additions are included in the HD Pro build as well, while the AM version adds eight brand-new presets. Please note that “retired” presets from earlier versions will still be available on the Volt webpage.
SNMP for All Configurations
Users 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 v1.3 update. VOLT 2.0 brings SNMP to the HD Pro, AM, and SG versions as well.
Users who have multiple 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.
VOLT 2.0 is a free firmware update for all users. Download it today from the VOLT 2.0 Landing Page!
