‘The addition of the new ceiling and pendant models makes Smart IP an even more flexible solution’
Spain - Genelec will be further expanding its Smart IP family of networked loudspeaker systems at ISE with the introduction of the 4435A in-ceiling and 4436A pendant models. The two new additions join the existing 4410, 4420 and 4430 on-wall Smart IP models to provide an even wider range of loudspeaker solutions – packing all the convenience, ease of installation and scalability of Smart IP’s single-cable networked technology into two popular new form factors.
Originally launched in 2019, the Smart IP loudspeaker range provides flexible power, audio and management features via a standard CAT cable. All models can be freely combined on a network, and are compatible with both Dante and AES67 streams, deriving power via PoE or PoE+ Power-over-Ethernet formats.
As well as receiving both power and audio-over-IP, the 4435A and 4436A both feature a rear panel RJ45 connector which allows access to Genelec’s Smart IP Manager – a sophisticated downloadable software tool that allows installers to configure an almost unlimited number of rooms, zones, loudspeakers and audio channels, and includes device discovery, a versatile room equalisation tool set, system organisation and status monitoring.
A public API command set allows easy integration with third party automation systems, or for less complex Smart IP systems, Genelec’s intuitive Smart IP Controller mobile app can be used to provide the end user with basic control of key loudspeaker functions.
Created in conjunction with industrial designer Harri Koskinen, the 4436A is Genelec’s very first pendant model, while the ultra-discreet 4435A supersedes the well-established AIC25 analogue-only in-ceiling model. Fashioned from durable, high quality steel, both new models can be ordered in a variety of finishes: black or white for the 4436A, while the 4435A can be ordered with circular or square magnetic grilles, which come with a choice of black or white colour schemes.
The 4435A and 4436A are designed to be seamlessly integrated with any combination of Smart IP models.
"The addition of the new ceiling and pendant models makes Smart IP an even more flexible solution, suiting an even wider and more diverse range of installations," comments Genelec AV business manager Kati Pajukallio.
