SAM gets smart with sound control12 September 2016
Smart Active Monitor (SAM)technology offers the user a number of benefits, claims Genelec, as it showcases the SAM range at IBC2016.
SAM products offer calibration of several parameters. These include frequency response and phase between monitor and subwoofer. The level parameter ensures that all speakers will have the same level at listening position regardless of distance, while time of flight calibration means the arrival time of sound from each monitor will be the same regardless of distance.
In addition to the automatic calibration feature it is also possible to adjust the filters manually through the software for individual preferences.
Smart Active Monitors are DSP-based and controlled by Genelec’s proprietary software called GLM, Genelec Loudspeaker Manager.
GLM can control a single speaker through to 5.1 systems and up to 25 monitors and five subwoofers in more complex immersive audio designs.
SAM products have proven themselves in difficult acoustic conditions like untreated rooms and in OB vans, claimed Genelec
