Genelec launches Smart IP Audio platform

Posted on: Monday 4th of February 2019

Genelec will launch a unique open IP networking technology platform at ISE 2019. This platform is aimed specifically at the installation market and will deliver power, audio and scalable loudspeaker system configuration, supervision and calibration features via a single standard CAT5 cable.

This technology will be rolled out over a range of Genelec’s installed audio loudspeakers, commencing in Q4 of 2019. Based on IP and Power-over-Ethernet (PoE), the Genelec technology platform includes a proprietary internal power supply that delivers much higher SPLs than was previously possible via any conventional PoE. Indeed, the Genelec solution is powerful enough to run small to medium sized systems – a world first.

In addition to its superior power handling qualities, Genelec’s smart IP platform also enables flexible system integration, supervision, management and monitoring over IP thanks to Genelec’s sophisticated loudspeaker management software. The concept of loudspeaker management by software is already a mature and well-established tool within Genelec’s studio monitoring loudspeaker range, but to address the specific needs of the installed audio market Genelec have developed dedicated software with tools focusing on solving specific installed audio problems: device discovery, automatic room equalisation and calibration, system organisation and status monitoring.

The smart IP platform solution is compatible with the most popular audio-over-IP networking protocols for complete flexibility and scalability. A standard analogue input is also included, increasing the system design flexibility.

“With everything you need delivered over a single, standard network cable – including enough power to drive medium SPL applications – integrators have a complete solution at their fingertips” said Aki Mäkivirta, director of R&D at Genelec. “The highest quality loudspeakers with onboard signal processing, integrated power amplifiers and automatic room calibration, all underpinned by Genelec’s renowned audio and build quality. Additionally, since all Genelec production takes place at our factory in Finland and follows strict principles of environmental compatibility and design for long service lifetime, it simply doesn’t get any easier to guarantee sustainable quality audio installations!”
