Genelec Unveils “USA Learning Channel” YouTube Portal
Genelec, the leader in active monitoring technology for four decades, announces a new YouTube portal, “Genelec USA Learning Channel,” which will be updated frequently with new content ranging from production tips and tricks to interviews with industry pros and beyond. Genelec Inc. Territory Managers Paul Stewart and John Whitcore serve as the hosts for this entertaining new information channel.
Visitors who subscribe to the channel before November 30, 2017, and share their subscription publicly on social media, will be entered to win a pair of limited-edition red Genelec 8030 Studio Monitors. The drawing is open to U.S. residents only.
Whitcore states, “Paul and I have been working hard to plan out the content that users have been asking for, and stuff that we would like to see personally. Sometimes we have the answers to our users’ pressing questions, whether it’s troubleshooting in the studio or just the basics of monitoring, and sometimes we bring in an outside expert to illuminate the issue. And we keep it fun, because we know sometimes these topics can be too dry or technical for some visitors’ tastes. We have a real passion for this content, and we hope that shines through. See you on the channel!”
Genelec, the pioneer in Active Monitoring technology, is celebrating nearly 40 years of designing and manufacturing active loudspeakers for true and accurate sound reproduction. Genelec is credited with promoting the concept of active transducer technology. Since its inception in 1978, Genelec has concentrated its efforts and resources into creating active monitors with unparalleled sonic integrity. The result is an active speaker system that has earned global acclaim for its accurate imaging, extremely high acoustic output from small enclosures, true high-fidelity with low distortion, and deep, rich bass.
Genelec is also celebrating over 10 years of its Smart Active Monitoring™ technology, which allows studio monitors to be networked, configured and calibrated for the user’s specific acoustic environment. Each Smart Active Monitor or subwoofer is equipped with advanced internal DSP circuitry, which tightly integrates with the GLM (Genelec Loudspeaker Manager) software application, running on Mac or PC. GLM’s reference microphone kit allows the user’s acoustic environment to be analyzed, after which GLM’s AutoCal feature optimizes each Smart Active Monitor for level, distance delay, subwoofer crossover phase and room response equalization, with the option of further fine tuning by the user. By minimizing the room’s influence on the sound, Smart Active Monitors deliver an unrivalled reference, with excellent translation between rooms.
