— Facility adds Genelec’s acclaimed 8200 Series DSP Monitors in surround sound configuration, assuring that multiple locations in the control room are able to accurately
monitor the exact same multichannel mix —

NATICK, MA, March 26, 2008 — Sounddesk, a three-year-old audio post production facility in Chicago, has purchased and installed a Genelec 5.1 8200 Series DSP Monitoring System, consisting of five Genelec 8250A monitors and a Genelec 7270A subwoofer. The Genelec 8200 Series Bi-Amplified Monitors employ the company’s proprietary DSP (Digital Signal Processing), GLM™ (Genelec Loudspeaker Manager software) and AutoCal™ (Automated Calibration software) technologies, which together create a self-calibrating monitoring solution that both guarantees accurate audio and ensures a steady-paced workflow.

Mark Bandy, President of Sounddesk, whose clients include the award-winning public radio program World Vision Report as well as national commercial campaigns, says he spent time comparing various monitoring systems before choosing Genelec. “I knew I wanted to be able to present the exact same mix to several locations in the control room,” he explains. “I wanted the producer’s chair to hear exactly what I hear in the engineer’s chair.” The Genelec DSP system was precisely what he needed. The GLM software and control network enhances the performance of Genelec 8200 series loudspeakers and 7200 series subwoofers. It features adjustment of levels, distance delays and flexible room response improvement equalization. “I have to say I was skeptical at first,” Bandy states. “But the Genelec GLM system works like a charm. I can load various presets in a matter of seconds, moving the engineer’s mix and the ‘sweet spot’ to any place in the room. The sound – the response – just blew me away. Plus, Genelec is a name that discerning audio clients know and trust.”
