Novel Genelec loudspeaker with Smart IP technology

Scalable power, audio and loudspeaker configuration via a standard CAT cable

Genelec has announced the availability of the new 4430 two-way active installation loudspeaker, the first model to incorporate the company’s Smart IP technology, combining sound quality with single cable convenience.

Smart IP provides scalable power, audio and loudspeaker configuration, supervision and calibration features via a standard CAT cable, offering integrators unrivalled power, flexibility, cost-effectiveness and simplicity of installation.

The 4430 is a compact design that accepts both Dante and AES67 IP audio streams, and derives power via both PoE and PoE+ Power-over-Ethernet formats, with the 4430’s proprietary internal power supply helping to deliver an impressive 104 dB of short term SPL, via two integral 50 W Class D amplification stages feeding the woofer and tweeter.

As well as receiving both power and audio-over-IP, the 4430’s single rear panel CAT connector also allows access to Genelec’s Smart IP Manager - a sophisticated downloadable software tool running on Windows 10 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. Additionally, APIs within the 4430 support the hooks to allow external control via third-party hardware, software or house automation.
