Italy - Continued development of the company’s patented WFIR filter design offer greater EQ resolution, while other updates extend the unit’s capabilities, compatibility and control options.
The latest updates to the Dashboard application (software v1.9.4 and firmware v0.97) include enhancements to the functionality of WFIR filters, the addition of GPIO port control and extended compatibility for the latest Apple Mac computers.
Of particular interest to companies who already deploy Newton on some of the world’s largest festivals is the further development of its unique WFIR (Warped Finite Impulse Response) filters, using Outline’s new Equalisation Coefficient Synthesis Algorithm (EQ-CSA) which accelerates the group EQ speed functionality significantly and also extends the filter resolution.
These enhancements apply not only within a single Newton but also when several units are networked together, whilst retaining all the outstanding performance and surgical precision for which the unique WFIR filters are recognised. This new level of multi-unit control delivers a level of audio equalisation options that can be simultaneously deployed across multiple festival stages.
Compatibility with Apple Mac computers has also been further developed by Outline’s engineers, as Big Sur and Monterey operating systems are now supported. Additionally, Dashboard is now fully compatible with latest-generation Macs using the M1 chip.
The update also introduces the option of using Newton’s GPIO capability to manage some internal functions for safety and evacuation purposes.
