Genelec launches new monitors

On stand 8.D61 at IBC2014, Genelec is releasing a new generation of Smart Active Monitoring (SAM) systems – designed to adapt automatically and accurately to the acoustic environment – by introducing two new compact two-way monitors, the 8320 and 8330, and a new subwoofer, the 7350, along with an entirely new and highly intuitive Genelec Loudspeaker Manager software, GLM 2.0, complemented with a new measurement microphone and network adapter unit.

“IBC is the perfect launch platform for our new compact SAM systems,” comments Lars-Olof Janflod, marketing and PR director at Genelec. “Visitors will discover how much further developments we have put in this new generation of SAM systems to offer intelligent auto-calibrating systems that are easy and friendly to use. Reaching a much wider range of production facilities and business applications, these new high resolution audio monitoring systems naturally extend our SAM range to smaller sizes while offering performance never seen or heard before in the audio monitoring business.”

The 8320 and 8330 monitors feature Genelec’s Minimum Diffraction Enclosure (MDE), made of recycled die-cast aluminium as well as Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW) technology.
