Genelec Unveils 8430 Monitor

News Image
Genelec has revealed a new addition to its Smart Active Monitor (SAM) range, the 8430, at BVE 2016.

As well as being the latest member of the series, the 8430 is the world's first commercially-ready audio-over-IP studio monitor.

The 8430 is the culmination of many years of intense research and development into audio-over-IP by Genelec. Siamäk Naghian, Managing Director of Genelec, said:

"At Genelec we believe that audio-over-IP networking, using systems fully compatible with open and global standards, is the right, reliable and robust way to address the future needs of the audio market. By launching 8430 we are a significant step closer to this reality.

"With the technological progress that has been made in the field and the serious involvements with audio-over-IP by broadcasters and other customers, we feel there is potential for a well-engineered monitor to provide both convenience and high performance benefits that IP networks can deliver. We think that the 8430 is exactly that monitor and I anticipate an enthusiastic reception of the product amongst the audio community. Audio-over-IP is no longer the future of monitoring, it is here now."

The 8430 combines connectivity options. First, using an AES67 signal, the audio-over-IP industry standard, via the XLR-housed RJ45 connector; and second, using a standard analogue signal via a balanced XLR connector. As part of Genelec SAM Series, the 8430 shares identical electro-acoustic features such as Genelec MDE and DCW technologies, a flow optimised reflex port, very low distortion, high SPL and wide uncoloured response in a very compact enclosure to ensure the most accurate sound reproduction possible.
As a member of the SAM Series, the 8430 uses the Genelec Loudspeaker Manager (GLM 2.0) control network and software which allows adjustments of all aspects of monitor settings and full system control. As a central part of GLM, Genelec AutoCal automatically ensures every monitor on the network is aligned for level, timing, as well as compensation of room response anomalies. The 8430 is set to become an indispensable tool in IP networked audio systems in music studios, post-production houses, digital edit suites, radio, TV and outside broadcasting applications.
