The new Superfly compact line-source enclosure
Germany - Outline is set to announce the launch of its latest concept at Prolight+Sound 2018. Following an evolutionary path from the influential Butterfly design, the new Superfly compact line-source enclosure “sets new standards in performance for a loudspeaker of these dimensions”.
Weighing under 38kg (83.8 lb) per module yet with prodigious acoustic potential and class-leading dispersion control, Superfly integrates within the existing Outline portfolio and can be readily paired with any of their subwoofer designs.
Powered by the company’s own DSP-equipped X8 amplifiers, Superfly-based systems are flexible, powerful, predictable, quick and easy to deploy and convenient to transport, contributing vital operational efficiencies to any live sound scenario, says the company.
Visitors to the show will be able to hear Superfly for themselves in the PL+S Live Sound Arena located in the outdoor area F1 at Hall 1. Real-world demos are scheduled for 11:20, 13:20 and 15:20 every day.
Outline will also be devoting considerable booth space to its new Newton processor. An FPGA-based processing platform designed as the management and control core for audio networks in touring, broadcast and fixed installation applications, it also provides management of sophisticated audio systems by combining multi-format channel routing with simultaneous standards conversion and digital signal synchronisation.
