Newton is a FPGA-based device built into a single 1RU networkable chassis
Italy - Outline has announced that its FPGA-based Newton processor has been awarded an Italian Patent. The company has also filed the appropriate application for an international patent.
Newton was introduced to the global pro-audio industry at Frankfurt MusikMesse in 2017. It has subsequently been adopted by a number of leading audio hire operations and system engineers
“It’s well-known that our company has been making a name for itself since the 1970s as a manufacturer of innovative audio electronics including modular mixers, parametric equalisers, encoders, tuners, crossovers, limiters, amplifiers and more,” says the company. “Latterly we have developed DSP and digital matrices, as well as futuristic embedded solutions connected with signal processing, including the outstanding ‘iMode’ technology that won a PLASA Award for Innovation at the London show in 2010.
“This decades-long process continues and the resulting hyper-specialised know-how within Outline’s engineering team led naturally to Newton, currently the pinnacle of our proprietary technology and the leading edge of audio processor design globally. The Newton is currently the only FPGA-based device built into a single 1RU networkable chassis which can simultaneously provide multiple audio signal processing / distribution functions plus clock signal management along with a choice of interfaces for users and system integrators, all with the added safety of extensive backup facilities. Further, the whole feature set is easily and quickly accessible to any user.”
Outline has also announced that Newton and its Dashboard control software will shortly undergo a firmware/software upgrade, which will extend Newton’s processing capabilities further.
