Genelec Displays Immersive 7.1.4 System at NAB

At NAB, Genelec is demonstrating a selection of its Active Monitors in an immersive 7.1.4 Atmos configuration.

Immersive audio has the ability to place listeners in the middle of a 3D audio environment through the addition of four overhead height channels to the more traditional 7.1 horizontal surround space.

Genelec’s system is composed of S360A Smart Active Monitors (L-C-R), 8341A’s (side and rear), 8331A’s (overheads) and 7382A and 7360A subwoofers (sub and bass management). These models are being used to demonstrate monitoring solutions for immersive mixing for music and post in Atmos.

“Immersive audio is one of the most interesting trends in the industry, as it adds 3D realism to music, virtual reality, movies and gaming,” said Will Eggleston, Genelec’s marketing manager.

Additionally, Genelec is making available a new set of educational tools aimed at helping professionals to better understand and make use of Immersive Audio.

Titled Genelec Immersive Solutions, the publication includes a comprehensive overview of the requirements for creating an effective immersive audio setup, including insights into the most commonly adopted formats and the Genelec solutions required to make the most of them. The guidebook can be downloaded here.
