Outline has announced a major firmware (v95) and software (v1.9) release for its Newton multi-source audio processor.
Smaart API integration represents the quickest and easiest way for users to integrate Smaart measurement data into Newton and to plot it within the Outline Dashboard software environment. This new compatibility will provide a faster, simpler and more accurate method of system tuning for Smaart users.
“Outline has done an outstanding job of utilising the Smaart API to integrate Smaart measurement data within the latest release of their Dashboard control software,” comments Karen Anderson, CEO, Rational Acoustics. “This integration really highlights Outline’s commitment to providing their customers with powerful, forward-thinking professional audio tools and we are thrilled to see Newton/Dashboard added to the ever-growing list of Smaart API enabled products.”
While the Smaart API integration is dedicated to those environments in which Smaart is being used, the new Direct Transfer feature provides an alternative way to send data to any third-party measurement software or system. Both pre and post-EQ measurements (related to the same channel’s DSP) are sampled and the resultant data can be used with independent measurement software or systems through the hardware outputs.
A new Group Overview feature allows users to see how changes to parameters made on a group basis affect individual channels. Each channel can be a member of up to four separate groups simultaneously and this new feature provides detailed information to the operator in a very simple and intuitive view.
The operator can now choose between two different threshold sensibilities (high and low) for Dante failover implementation.
Outline’s Fernando Rey Mendez will be on stand D62 (CUK Audio) throughout PLASA 2019, where he will be demonstrating Newton and all the new features.
