Istanbul-based Sound Creative Technics have made a substantial investment in an Outline loudspeaker system. 

The acquisition included 24 GTO line-array elements, 24 DBS 18-2 subwoofers, 24 Mantas compact line-array enclosures, a Newton FPGA processor and a complete, ready-racked power, rigging, accessory and cabling solution.

Company Director and Partner Sarper Ulusel described the selection process and why BCT have chosen Outline: “Our goal in choosing a new audio equipment brand was to find something unique and impactful for the Turkish market, not just another popular name. We spent about a year evaluating different brands, looking for one that offered us more than just market presence. Our criteria were based on technical capabilities and the potential to offer something different in a crowded market. With a history spanning 30 years in the industry, we’ve had the opportunity to work extensively with various speaker brands for tours, festivals, concerts, launches and numerous other events.” Ulusel continued, “Our first encounter with Outline’s products was with the GTO during a live concert setup and what struck us initially was the flexibility of the Newton device; its intuitively designed user interface allows such easy adjustments and system control. Following this, the performance of the GTO system itself left a lasting impression – the combination of high SPL, total lack of distortion and even coverage throughout the venue were remarkable.”

“Outline’s products stood out clearly among four final contenders for our prospective purchase. The Newton device and power amplifiers in particular stood out for their technical excellence and reliability but we also saw the potential in Outline’s technology to bring something new to the Turkish market, a region where they were not yet widely recognised. A visit to the Outline factorywas a turning point, where we saw first-hand their dedication to quality and innovation. This visit showed us that choosing Outline was more than just selecting a brand; it was about partnering with a company that shares our commitment to high-quality audio experiences. We believe this decision will help us set new standards in our market and provide our clients with exceptional audio solutions,” Ulusel added”

As many have already discovered, the Newton processor delivers flexibility in operation and handling multiple audio protocols: “This versatility is a significant advantage in a market that values adaptability and precision,” noted Technical and Operational Director, Fatih Siranli. “The low latency and high processing capacity of the Newton’s FPGA-based design are critical for our work, especially when it comes to synchronising with various measurement programs during sound system setup. Additionally, one of the most crucial aspects of Newton is its ability to work with different protocols. This is incredibly beneficial for a company like ours, which uses a variety of sound systems. The ease of integrating Newton into these diverse systems without compromising on performance or reliability is a significant advantage, making it our preferred choice of processor.”

“We envision a strong return from our investment in Outline products and technologies, in terms of both technical capacity as seen from the market and the increased efficiency of operating sound systems aimed at different applications from within the same ecosystem,” Ulusel concluded.
