By PSW Staff • October 1, 2009 Demonstrating new Outline OpenArray software at the recent PLASA show in London Outline has launched its OpenArray 3D software that helps predict coverage and other esults from both live and installation applications of the company’s products. Training seminars for the new software were held during the recent PLASA 2009, with a company statement noting the intention of releasing an “alpha” version of software is to gain the experience of system engineers consistently working in the field. Building on the success of the Outline V.I.P. (Vector Implementation Protocol), the goal is to have engineers provide a “wish list” of additions to the software that would assist them in the future. The software can also be used by sales designers to show clients what can be expected from their purchases. OpenArray applies to three line array products from Outline – Butterfly, Mini-COM.P.A.S.S. and Mantas – and by the end of this year, all the company’s subwoofer products will be included. Early next year, all Outline products, including all point-source products, will be covered. OpenArray is based on a GL platform and features very fast rendering times from input of data to final design, and it also has the ability to import DXF files, thus giving engineers a head start to final deployment of the intended system. The program went into its first event one week following PLASA at the Guinness 250 celebrations, where an Outline Butterfl’ system was used in HOP HOUSE 13 for performances by Tom Jones and Kasabian. Britannia Row System Engineer Sergiy Zhtytnikov comments, “The program is really easy to use and accurately predicts the eventual performance of the Outline Butterfly. As a building platform for further enhancements that will appear soon and with the input from actual users the software has no competitors.” Outline Website Comments Have something to say about this PSW content?
