Genelec Launches Additions to its Smart Active Monitoring Range at IBC2014


During the last eight years, Genelec has created a line of highly successful Smart Active Monitoring (SAM™) products designed to adapt automatically and accurately to the acoustic environment. Today, 12. September 2014, on Stand 8.D61 at IBC 2014, Genelec is proud to release a new generation of SAM systems 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 the advanced Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW™) technology. While the 8320 and 8330 monitors and the 7350 subwoofer are small in stature, they are outstanding in performance and are part of the highly integrated software and hardware solutions developed by Genelec R&D team. With their floating point digital signal processing engines and Genelec-designed Class D amplifiers, these SAM systems will make you appreciate the forward thinking that makes Genelec the leading benchmark in audio monitoring for broadcast, post-production, and music facilities.


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

Genelec SAM systems offer the most advanced and flexible monitoring solutions for today’s professional users, in production facilities of all types and sizes.
