The Netherlands - Genelec will be showcasing two Smart IP loudspeaker models at the forthcoming ISE tradeshow in Amsterdam. The 4420 and 4430 loudspeakers combine “exceptional sound quality with single cable convenience, and their onboard Smart IP technology provides scalable power, audio and loudspeaker configuration, supervision and calibration features via a standard CAT cable”. Smart IP offers system designers, integrators and installers “an easy, powerful and cost-effective solution for guaranteeing enjoyable, high-quality audio across entire installations”.
Having been unveiled before a select audience of specially invited Nordic integrators in Helsinki in December, the 4430 will be making its ISE debut alongside its new and even more compact 4420 sibling – with yet more Smart IP models expected to be added to the family in the future.
Producing the clarity and intelligibility, the 4420 and 4430 are compatible with both Dante and open IP standards including AES67 and ST2110-30, and derive power via PoE and PoE+ Power-over-Ethernet formats. Both models feature a single rear panel CAT connector which also allows access to Genelec’s Smart IP Manager - a 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. This enables installers to deploy Smart IP loudspeakers even on highly complex, acoustically challenging projects.
Manufactured sustainably to offer low power consumption, reliability and long life, the 4420 and 4430 enclosures are produced from recycled aluminium, are available in black, white or 120 custom RAL colours, and are compatible with Genelec’s extensive range of mounting accessories to allow both models to be floor, ceiling, wall or truss mounted.
Genelec managing director Siamak Naghian comments: “With the 4430 already being utilised on prestigious Nordic installations - including Helsinki’s Finnish Music Hall of Fame, Moesgaard Museum in Aarhus and the new G Livelab music venue in Tampere, we’re confident that the new 4420 will also be embraced by installers looking for an even more compact Smart IP loudspeaker solution. The overwhelmingly positive feedback that we’ve received from the early adopters of Smart IP makes us extremely excited about ISE - and the potential of our AV Installation business in the future.”
