FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Genelec Exhibits Compact Additions to its Smart Active
Monitoring™ Range at 2015 NAB Show


NAB SHOW, LAS VEGAS, NV, April 13, 2015 — During the last eight years, Genelec (booth C3258)has created a line of highly successful Smart Active Monitoring™ (SAM™) products designed to adapt automatically and accurately to the acoustic environment in which they are employed. Recently, Genelec has introduced a new generation of SAM systems with the unveiling of two new compact two-way monitors, the 8320 (4-inch woofer, 0.75-inch metal dome tweeter, each powered by dedicated 50-Watt amplifiers) and 8330 (5-inch woofer, 0.75-inch metal dome tweeter, also powered by dedicated 50-Watt amplifiers), and a new complementary subwoofer, the 7350 (8-inch woofer, powered by a 150-Watt amplifier), along with an entirely new and highly intuitive version 2 of its Genelec Loudspeaker Manager™ (GLM™) software, paired with a new proprietary measurement microphone and network adapter unit.

“Our new small SAM systems are an exciting addition to our product range,” comments Will Eggleston, Genelec Inc. Marketing Manager. “Our engineering department has put a tremendous amount of work into developing this new generation of SAM components – intelligent, intuitive auto-calibrating systems, designed for music studios, post-production facilities, digital edit suites, broadcast and remote recording operations.”

The 8320 and 8330 monitors feature Genelec’s Minimum Diffraction Enclosure™ (MDE™), made of recycled die-cast aluminium, as well as the advanced Directivity Control Waveguide™ (DCW™) technology. While the 8320 and 8330 monitors and the 7350 subwoofer are small in stature, they offer accurate, powerful monitoring and are part of the highly integrated software and hardware solutions developed by Genelec’s R&D team. With their floating-point DSP engines for signal processing and Genelec-designed Class D amplifiers, the SAM systems represent the forward thinking that makes Genelec the leading benchmark in audio monitoring for over 35 years.

Genelec’s SAM technology is an indispensable tool when dealing with the challenging realities of small room acoustics. SAM automatically optimizes and aligns each monitor for relative levels and time of flight, as well as the individual room response compensations. So, even if the monitors or the projects move between rooms, users can expect that SAM technology will achieve the highest level of consistency in monitoring by always providing a neutral sound stage imaging with low distortion.

The following Genelec Compact SAM packages are now available, with the following U.S. MSRP pricing:

  • 8320 Stereo SAM                                                                                         $1799.00
