Smart IP

AV installers - our new Smart IP technology is now available. At last, you can deliver exceptional audio, power and sophisticated loudspeaker management via a single CAT cable.

Power to the speaker.
Power to the installer.

One clever little cable.

Genelec, the global leader in professional audio monitoring, has introduced a unique open IP networking technology platform that delivers power, audio, scalable loudspeaker system configuration, and supervision and calibration features – all via a single standard CAT cable.

Beauty and simplicity on both sides of the wall

It’s been said that simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. And when you combine Genelec's innovative Smart IP technology platform with the new PoE-powered 4420A and 4430A loudspeakers, you get both. With everything you need to power small- to medium-sized systems via one standard CAT cable, you’ll discover that Genelec has introduced beauty and simplicity to both sides of the wall.

Power couple.

Genelec Smart IP Technology and the new Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) enabled 4420A and 4430A loudspeakers bring one-cable simplicity and superior sound to even the most challenging, high-end audio system design and installation projects.

“The development of the IP technology platform offers integrators an easy and cost-effective route to uncompromised high-quality audio installations.”

Proven, time-saving software.

Single-cable simplicity is only the beginning. Thanks to Genelec’s sophisticated speaker management software, the smart IP technology platform enables flexible system integration, supervision, management, and monitoring over IP.

Genelec speaker management software is already a well-established and trusted tool within the company’s studio monitoring speaker range. But to address the specific needs of installers, Genelec developed dedicated software that offers an array of tools focused on solving specific installation audio problems – including device discovery, automatic room equalisation and calibration, and system organisation and status monitoring.

This saves integrators a substantial amount of working time while ensuring that the system performs with outstanding clarity and speech intelligibility.

Speed demon.

Smart IP technology not only allows Genelec to bring its renowned audio quality to IP speaker installations, it also makes active speaker system design and installation significantly faster and easier. And you won’t need as much gear. Can’t you just hear those savings?



All systems go.

Based on IP and Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) technology, the Genelec platform utilizes a proprietary internal power supply that delivers remarkably higher SPLs than was previously possible via any conventional PoE. In fact, the Genelec solution is powerful enough to run small to medium sized systems – a world first.



Flexible system management.

Anywhere, anytime.

The Genelec Smart IP technology platform is a game-changing speaker network solution. It enables the transfer of high-quality audio signals to active Genelec loudspeakers via an IP network, and empowers integrators and installers with the ability to monitor, maintain, and configure speaker systems remotely to better serve your clients. Now you can control speaker performance, and create speaker groups for different rooms, spaces and environments, or react quickly to whatever else your clients may need – from virtually anywhere.



Sustainable profitability.

Thanks to the ease of being able to use just one cable and the ability to utilize existing IT infrastructure when possible, both of which will save on resources, the Genelec Smart IP solution provides true, sustainable profitability for all installation projects.

Sound Superiority.

Genelec skimp on sound? Never. The new PoE-enabled 4420A and 4430A loudspeakers deliver Genelec’s same critically acclaimed, high-quality audio to IP network-based AV system installations.

In fact, the only thing you will lose are those annoying extra cables. There’s a reason why audio professionals around the world trust their mixes to Genelec. And now professional audio system designers, integrators, and installers have plenty of great reasons to follow suit.



Smart consumer.

Genelec patented dynamic power technology helps Smart IP loudspeakers use less electricity by restoring energy from the continuous power feed and better balancing energy consumption peaks that occur on lower audio frequencies.



Designed for beauty and performance. And to last.

You’ll also benefit from extensive remote maintenance capabilities and an impressive 5-year parts warranty. Not to mention Genelec’s exceptional craftsmanship and product life cycle which has been known to last for decades. And always with an eye on sustainability, Genelec utilizes recycled aluminium to build its enclosures, which in turn can be recycled endlessly.



“With everything you need delivered over a single, standard network cable - including enough power to drive medium SPL applications - integrators have a complete solution at their fingertips: the highest quality loudspeakers with onboard signal processing, integrated power amplifiers and automatic room calibration, all underpinned by Genelec’s renowned audio and build quality.”
