Baoshan Iron and Steel Company, Shanghai, China
The Baoshan Iron and Steel Company, one of the world's largest steel makers, use Newton's e.envoy AdMusic system to make automated announcements triggered by the plants' control system. Newton worked closely with Motherwell Systems to integrate AdMusic with their control system. This system works 24 hours a day, warning the 30,000 workers on the 20 square kilometre site of impending automatic machinery starts.
The Canberra Centre shopping complex is a blue chip retail development located in the Canberra CBD and is owned and managed by the Queensland Investment Corporation, a multi-billion dollar fund manager. Newton has installed e.envoy to run 5 plasma screens and a 3.84m x 2.24m LED screen in the food court area of the Centre. The screens, sponsored by ActewAGL are being used for advertising and were used for promotion of the Rugby World Cup in October 2003
The Newton e.envoy technology was chosen to manage this project as it effectively displays information on screens with vastly different resolutions (high resolution plasmas vs. low resolution LEDs) and has the capability to remotely update content in real time across the network.
Sydney Airport Qantas Terminal
Newton designed and developed software for the public paging system for the new Qantas Terminal at the Sydney Airport. This hi-tech software (Digital Signal Processing technology) runs equipment in 14 gate lounges, controlling 19 microphones across thousands of square metres of floor space.
The Parliament House of Australia
Newton were engaged to audit and recommend improvements to the acoustic environment in all of the committee rooms in Parliament House. On completion of this work, Newton were contracted to provide high-level acoustic consultancy, sound quality modelling, equipment and loud speaker design, software programming, project management and installation. Newton also designed and built a portable press splitter for the office of the Prime Minister, enabling the PM to get his message out to the masses without being hidden behind microphones!
Civil Aviation Authority CaaN
This was a joint venture between Newton and the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) to design and produce remote monitoring systems for air safety equipment. These systems allowed CAA to consolidate operations into major centres, leading to a marked increase in efficiency and productivity.
The National Library
Newton designed and installed a new control system for the National Library's book lift, as well as a display to notify users that the books they requested were ready to be picked up. The system features large display panels with in-built sound proofing, finished in wood veneer. The display is controlled by a user-friendly purpose-built software package. Newton's service, backup, and designed-in reliability means this system is always online. Five years after the system was first installed, the Library requested a new feature be added to their custom-built software. Because of Newton's excellent Quality System, all the relevant files were ready to go from our archives within a couple of hours of receiving this request.
The Sydney Opera House
Forty-eight Newton 6601 mixer pre-amplifiers are installed in the Sydney Opera House, controlling the public address system throughout the House. These amplifiers are also used by Village Roadshow in their multiplex movie cinemas around Australia, and the High Court of Darwin has installed this system for recording and amplifying court proceedings. The High Court of Darwin installation won the Institute of Engineer's 'Engineering Excellence Award' for the Northern Territory.
Newton works closely with the Canberra Stadium to provide a unique solution for their large (largest in Australia!) LED screen display requirements. e.envoy is used to provide information and sponsorship content on the screen independent of the normal broadcast feed video. e.envoy does live updates of weather and stadium information, shrinking, moving or replacing the video depending on the requirement.
Lend Lease Woden Plaza Shopping Centre
The Woden Plaza Shopping Centre was the first site to use Newton's e.envoy AdMusic. This system provides background music, advertising and paging, with new ads uploaded as they are recorded. The music is remotely controlled at the request of the Plaza management. Woden Plaza was also the first site to install Newton's e.envoy system, with three plasma screens throughout the centre showing information and advertisements. Content was sent via satellite from Newton's HQ to the screens.
