Genelec 4430 Loudspeaker Offers Sound Over IP
Genelec has announced the availability of the new 4430 two-way active installation loudspeaker, the first model to incorporate the company’s single-cable Smart IP technology.
Genelec said Smart IP provides scalable power, as well as audio and loudspeaker configuration, supervision and calibration features via a standard CAT cable. This offers integrators 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. The 4430’s proprietary internal power supply helps deliver 104 dB of short-term SPL and via two integral 50-watt Class D amplification stages feeding the woofer and tweeter.
The 4430’s single rear panel CAT connector also allows access to Genelec’s Smart IP Manager, downloadable software tool running on Windows 10 that allows installers to configure an almost unlimited number of rooms, zones, loudspeakers and audio channels.
It includes device discovery, a versatile room equalization tool set, system organization and status monitoring. Additionally, APIs within the 4430 support the hooks to allow external control via third-party hardware, software or house automation.
