Outline is an Italian company specialising in the design and manufacture of professional loudspeaker systems, digital signal processors, precision measurement equipment and related technologies.
Recognised globally for their innovation and manufacturing quality, the company is a major international force in the sound reinforcement industry.
It was founded in the northern Italian city of Brescia in 1973 by Guido Noselli, a young musician driven by a strong desire to improve the quality of audio heard by audiences at live events.
Outline offers an extensive range of installation products, offering a complete range of high-quality solutions for a large number of installed applications.
All the products offer versatility and of course great audio quality, an array of mounting options, and custom capabilities.
All models feature high-quality Italian-made components and are designed, sourced, and manufactured to the same stringent quality standards Outline applies to all of their high-end touring audio products.
Common characteristics between the products are high intelligibility, extraordinary audio fidelity, and excellent power-to-size ratios.
Outline’s presence in the live sound and touring sector has escalated massively since the launch of Butterfly in 2003.
Butterfly became well known in the sector, not just for its quality, but also for its enormous SPL and throw capability. This was down to Outline’s patented DPRWG waveguide and immensely compact three-way design.
Since 2003, Outline have continued to develop and launch more solutions dedicated to this sector, all based on their own patented technologies.
This culminated in the introduction of GTO, which has since been adopted by some of the world’s leading production companies.
Outline provides an extensive range of portable PA products, offering a complete range of high-quality solutions for portable applications.
There are passive and self-powered options for most of the portable products, which offer versatility and of course great audio quality and an array of rigging and transport options.
All models feature high-quality Italian-made components and are designed, sourced and manufactured to the same stringent quality standards Outline applies to all of their high-end touring audio products.
Common characteristics are high intelligibility, extraordinary audio fidelity, and excellent power-to-size ratios.
Outline offers a compact range of high-performance products, specifically designed for stadium installations.
All the models use the same D.P.R.W.G and Power-V technology that is deployed in the high-performance touring line array products.
As a result, they deliver a massive 149dB, and a full range frequency response extending down to 65 Hz.
The enclosures are constructed from birch ply finished with ‘outSIDE’, an extraordinary tough and waterproof elastoplastic coating which interacts with the cabinets to provide extreme levels of long-term protection.
With the Movie Series, Outline introduces a complete line of cinema loudspeaker enclosures.
The five models in the range are designed to meet all requirements of current and future Digital Cinema sound formats. Among the key strong points of Outline’s cinema system, is the reduction of phase cancellations to a minimum in the critical range of the spoken word and very accurate directivity control.
The main channel is a high-performance 3-way system and can be formed by using a 2-way horn-loaded mid-high unit (Movie H 102), along with a dedicated bass unit (Movie B 215).
An interesting ‘two-and-a-half-way’ system is also available, the Movie MV2CX. A 2×18″ subwoofer (Movie S 218) and an enclosure for surround effects (Movie FX 101) complete the series.
The all-new Architectural Series is a range of loudspeakers designed specifically to meet the aesthetic and performance demands of integrators, interior designs and clients.
Comprising of four loudspeakers, plus a complementary selection of mounting accessories, the two main focus points of the new range is being discreet and providing premium sound quality.
Despite their diminutive size, each of the mid-high modules delivers perfectly balanced audio, whether from playback of ‘live’, while the AS6 dedicated subwoofer provides low-frequency reinforcement that totally belies its dimensions.
System control is at the heart of any loudspeaker system, be it live or install.
This is why Outline has launched Newton. A full featured, FPGA-based ‘Multi Media Nucleus’ that takes technology convergence for audio-visual systems to the next level.
Newton redefines the ‘gold standard’ in modern audio processing and represents another quantum leap forward from Outline.
In addition to comprehensive loudspeaker system control facilities, it additionally offers media conversion, sync and clock management, plus audio distribution with networking capabilities along with a very high potential I/O count (up to 216 in both directions simultaneously).
