Outline’s Newton is a patent-pending, FPGA-based processing platform designed to be the management and control core for audio networks in touring, broadcast, and fixed installation applications. Combining multiformat channel routing with simultaneous standards conversion and digital signal synchronization, Newton incorporates new filter technology along with clock and powering redundancy, in a 1U networkable chassis. A unique system topology is provided by very high-quality FPGA-based synchronous sample rate conversion (SSRC) and asynchronous sample rate conversion (ASRC) with wide dynamic range and low distortion. The unit supports up to 15 clock source options and a virtually unlimited number of filters using Outline’s proprietary WFIR filtering technology supporting raised cosine filtering technology. It also features independent, internal dual-redundant universal AC mains supplies (fitted as standard) with dual cooling fans. The I/O configuration provides 216 channels in both directions, simultaneously, using a fully automatic clock source and audio signal switchover facilities. The system and setup are controllable via Outline Dashboard software for Mac OS. The system is available in three hardware versions: Newton 16, Newton 16+4 and Newton 16+8. All processed signals and direct outputs can be routed out using any audio standard, including Dante (AES67 compliant), AES3, Madi Optical, and Madi Coaxial. Internal processing is all at 96kHz, with an internal data depth up to 64 bits. In each processing section, users have control over level, delay, polarity, and raised cosine filters (implemented within WFIR equalizers). newton.outline.it
