Adlib Put Newton Center Stage at TRNSMT Festival

Adlib delivered a full-service production package including lighting, audio, video, and rigging for Glasgow's TRNSMT Festival 2019, held at Glasgow Green in July. This very popular event is now in its third year and headliners included Stormzy, Catfish and The Bottlemen, and George Ezra.

Serviced from Adlib's Glasgow office, it was project-managed by Chris Neary, assisted by Graham Cochrane and Craig Hamilton. The company deployed part of their large L-Acoustics inventory, including K1, K2, Kara, and KS28 loudspeakers, and five DiGiCo SD12 digital mixing systems were used as the house desks for front of house and Monitors plus visiting consoles.

At the heart of the system was, once again, Outline's unique Newton FPGA-based processor, which has become Adlib's go-to device for interfacing multiple consoles with the PA at festivals, in addition to many other duties. James Coghlan was Adlib's system engineer at TRNSMT and he comments,

"Since using a Newton for the first time in May 2018 as a console matrix, it's been my preferred method of getting multiple consoles into the PA system at any one time. This year at TRNSMT, we stepped it up a notch and used a pair of Newtons in tandem to do all of the console matrixing and system processing.

"Taking LRSF from up to four consoles at any one point in AES3 format with an analogue backup and giving me all my PA sends plus record and program matrices, the Newtons worked seamlessly throughout the weekend. With the latest software update, including SMAART integration and the tablet mode, what was already a fantastic bit of kit is only going to get better."
