Outline’s Newton Provides ‘The Glue’ In Halifax With HPSS


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

Dave Cartwright manages to combine a career as full-time senior broadcast engineer for a major national broadcaster alongside regular system tech duties, often freelancing for HPSS Ltd, a full-service production provider based in Hull, northeast England.

“I’ve been using the Newton for a few years now” – comments DaveHPSS bought into the unit via (UK distributor) CUK in 2019 and it really is a game changer. In fact it was love at first sight – with ASRCs (asynchronous sample rate convertors) on every logic input, an invisible and powerful EQ, simple and intuitive GUI and Smaart integration, plus it also ties in perfectly with HPSS’s Dante returns infrastructure.”

”We’ve been using it on the ‘Live At The Piece Hall’ shows in Halifax (The Piece Hall is an 18th century cloth hall, now converted into retail units and doubling as a handsome outdoor venue) this summer. It’s a venue which is starting to get good traction within the industry with some high profile artists this year – Tom JonesPaul WellerPaloma FaithTom GrennanPete Tong Presents Ibiza ClassicsNile Rodgers &ampCHICFirst Aid KitNoel Gallagher’s High Flying BirdsJessie WareDuran Duran and Primal Scream have all performed.”

Newton is one aspect of a show you don’t need to worry about – it is the glue which is holding this show together into a decent sized L-Acoustics K2 / Kara system, covering an audience of around 5,000 per night.”
