OMNEO is an evolutionary Bosch solution for connecting devices over IP to exchange information including control and audio content for use in application domains such as public address, intercom, conferencing, and pro audio/video.
Bosch Building Technologies has introduced a public standards based media networking architecture to promote device interconnectivity.
This architecture – called OMNEO – has two main components: (1) a media program transport protocol suite that offers low latency, high-quality multichannel media stream exchange; and (2) a robust control protocol suite that provides reliable and secure system control and monitoring for pro media networks of all sizes, from small to intercontinental.
OMNEO is fully compatible with Audinate's Dante networking technology to provide standards-based, routable IP media transport. In addition, the OMNEO has been designed to support emerging and future standards as they come to the market.
OMNEO's system control component is AES70. Also referred to as OCA, for Open Control Architecture, it includes many features for flexibility, reliability, security, and compatible growth over the years.
FEATURES & BENEFITS
Through the use of off-the-shelf networking equipment OMNEO seeks to provide a professional media networking solution that includes low latency, high channel count program transport, full-function remote device control and monitoring, and the ability to interconnect diverse applications domains such as public address, intercom, conferencing, and pro audio/video. Using proven networking technologies, OMNEO provides all of these capabilities with the highest levels or reliability, redundancy and security.
OPEN PUBLIC STANDARDS
Bosch Building Technologies is firmly committed to using and supporting open public standards and offering fully interoperable systems.
OMNEO is an architectural approach to connecting devices that need to exchange information such as audio content or device control.
Built upon multiple technologies, including IP and open public standards, OMNEO supports the technologies of today--such as Audinate’s Dante--while adopting the standards of tomorrow.
OMNEO offers a professional-grade media networking solution that provides interoperability, unique features for easier installation, better performance, and greater scalability than any other IP offering on the market.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is OMNEO?
OMNEO is a standards-based, professional media networking solution which provides for high quality multichannel media transmission and powerful, reliable system control via standard Ethernet IP networks. It enables the development of audio products capable of cooperating and exchanging audio signals using industry-standard IP digital network equipment.
Where will OMNEO be used?
OMNEO will be used in nearly all Bosch Building Technologies future communications products where media transport and system control is required. This includes the products of Bosch Public Address and Conferencing, Dynacord, Electro-Voice, RTS, and Telex.
Is OMNEO Proprietary?
No. Bosch Building Technologies believes that open public audio/video networking standards will provide the best value options for customers in the long run. OMNEO will be compliant with public standards when appropriate pro media networking standards are complete. Additionally, OMNEO is fully compatible with technologies such as Audinate Pty.'s Dante, the AES70 standards, and others.
Is OMNEO only transporting AV content?
No. The architecture also includes powerful system control features. Bosch Building Technologies believes that system control is a critical component of interoperability, and promotes efforts to create open public standards for system control as well as media transport.
