Bridging analogue to digital and IP

Designed for analogue partyline users who want to enter the world of digital and IP communications while extending the working life of their legacy equipment, RTS has released OMS (OMNEO Main Station), a hybrid IP/digital/analogue main station for partyline intercom systems and the core component of a new product family: RTS Digital Partyline.

OMNEO IP technology – incorporating Dante (audio transport) and AES70 (device control) – allows OMS to interconnect with RTS Digital Matrix products (including ADAM, ADAM-M, ODIN, KP series keypanels and ROAMEO DECT wireless) and forthcoming new members of the RTS Digital Partyline family. According to the manufacturer, OMS can provide a path from legacy equipment to the latest technology, allowing users to migrate to the flexibility of an IP infrastructure without the complexity of a matrix system.

OMS is a communications multi-tool for a wide range of customers, including theatres, houses of worship, broadcast, AV rental, industrial facilities and entertainment/event venues. It is available in five licensed configurations to suit the user’s budget and application requirements: Advanced, Intermediate and Basic digital (each with OMNEO); Analog Plus and Analog (main station options for analogue-only partyline systems). Users requiring both analogue and digital should upgrade to OMS Intermediate or OMS Advanced.

All OMS configurations feature a high-resolution, full-colour front panel display and an icon-based menu structure. The panel layout will be familiar to partyline users and has dedicated colour-coded controls for each channel (talk/listen/call/volume). Each of the four button sets can be programmed to function with any destination in the system. For example, button set one does not necessarily need to control partyline one; it can be assigned as a relay or to a keypanel. Three headset variants are supported. The AC power supply has a locking IEC connector, and the unit’s low power draw and venting enclosure design reportedly mean that no cooling fans are necessary.

Support for four ports of analogue AIO four-wire, four ports of analogue two-wire (equipped with echo cancellation), two program inputs and one stage announce output are included. Ethernet connectivity is via copper or fibre (for OMS Intermediate and OMS Advanced versions with OMNEO). Additional OMNEO expansion audio ports are included for networking with other OMS units, enabling additional system capacity and partyline capability as part of a distributed or multi-site system. OMS Intermediate and OMS Advanced configurations support the TIF-2000A digital telephone interface.

The fully equipped OMS Advanced version allows the user to convert between four different formats: OMNEO, RVON, four-wire AIO and two-wire. G.711, G.722 and G.729AB codecs are supported. Up to 40 OMNEO devices may be connected, including ROAMEO beltpacks (for which OMS can also serve as a standalone base station), up to eight keypanels and up to 16 partylines. OMS Advanced supports four channels of RVON (RTS Voice Over Network) via RTS KP series keypanels, for remote networking with other RVON-capable equipment (RVON Trunking not supported).
