New Software And Firmware Updates Keep Outline’s Newton In A Global Class Of One

software v1.9.4 and firmware v0.97

 Outline is proud to introduce Newton, the next generation in audio system control and networking. Newton advances the management of sophisticated audio systems by combining new filter technology, multi-format audio signal routing, multi-format standards conversion and digital signal synchronisation in a single 1RU networkable chassis

Keith Cunningham | Britannia Row
Technical Head

“Following several demos of the Newton we were very impressed with the GUI, fast workflow and ease of use. The Newton is the all-in-one solution to many technical problems.”

“The form factor is the real selling point, it’s a constant battle for all manufacturers to try and shrink the footprint while retaining functionality – Outline have managed to find a perfect match between both. Fernando at Outline and James at CUK have been very receptive to our feedback and feature requests, which really inspires confidence in both companies.”

“We see the Newton being used for all future projects that require simple and effective system management – any tool that speeds up workflow and simplifies complex clocking arrangements is a winner!”


Josh Lloyd | Britannia Row
Tech Projects Manager

"The most important features for us when deciding upon the Newton were its small form factor with such a high I/O count, the wide scope for redundancy with dual PSUs, multiple layers of redundancy on the inputs, its unique approach to switching if an input is lost and the fact that it can SRC the wide range of digital formats it takes in.”
“On both MTV and the Brits the Newtons were used as the front-end matrix for the audio system, taking inputs from both the presenter and band consoles in multiple formats to give us true redundancy, so MADI, Dante, AES and analogue were all used simultaneously.”
“With the complex system design and show layout, being able to take in large groups of inputs in multiple formats was a winner – the Newton has managed to replace multiple units which used to have to be cascaded, it has eliminated clocking headaches and also means we can have an overview of everything that’s going on, all within one page of the software.”
“The Newton having proved itself on two large scale, international televised events has shown that with its flexibility it could be used on a wide variety of our projects and it will be my go-to choice for these events moving forward.”


Jon Monson - Rat Sound Systems, Inc California

"Rat Sound has been searching for several years for a solution to drive our festival sound systems and Outline has met the challenge with an elegant solution. With the Newton we can combine consoles and drive outputs in a multitude of popular formats, and we appreciate all the various clocking options. Our System Engineers instantly appreciated the intuitive, easy to use software control. Rat has immediately begun deploying Newton's on a multitude of festivals, and we plan on utilizing them on all our festival events in 2019 and beyond."

Newton comes in three hardware versions:
Newton 16, Newton 16+4 and Newton 16+8. Newton 16 offers simultaneous signal connections over Dante™ (AES67 compliant), AES3, MADI Optical and MADI Coaxial, with the capability of fully processing 216 Inputs and 216 Outputs simultaneously. 

All processed signals and direct outputs can be routed out of Newton using any of the available audio standards. This, as just one example, would allow signals to be received over MADI, processed and then transmitted to multiple amplifiers on Dante with an AES3 output for backup. This direct out, processing and routing ability can also be used to create a backbone for a multiple Newton Network to share signals.

Internal processing is all at 96 kHz, with an internal data depth up to 64 bits. In each processing section users have precise control over Level, Delay, Polarity and Raised Cosine Filters (implemented within WFIR Equalisers), all functions that are required to manage and optimize a loudspeaker system.
While Newton 16 is an all-digital device, Newton 16+4 and Newton 16+8 add the useful capability of local analog inputs and outputs. 

Newton 16+4 adds 4 auxiliary analog inputs and outputs while Newton 16+8 adds 8 auxiliary analog Inputs and outputs. Each analog input is also provided with additional processing and matrix allowing inputs to be processed, routed and mixed into the main matrix. All three versions of Newton share the same motherboard and it is possible to upgrade from Newton 16 to Newton 16+4 or Newton 16+8.
