December Meeting Notice: DSP in Monitoring Speakers

Meeting Notice

The next meeting of the AES Melbourne Section will be on Monday 10th December at 7:30pm.

Steven Spurrier of Studio Connections will present on the topic:

Using DSP in loudspeakers to tame the monitoring environment
           …Genelec’s unique approach

This presentation will cover modern DSP monitors and how they adapt to the listening environment.

The last decade has experienced a rapid increase in global media content creation, resulting in significant changes in the way network facilities deal with increased workload. Now, more than ever, a growing number of audio productions are done in tighter, more confined working environments. This increases acoustic problems and lowers the reliability of monitoring. At the same time, a professional audio engineer needs high confidence in the monitoring system, which should be acoustically adjusted to its environment.

Genelec’s SAM systems intelligent GLM AutoCal™ technology improves the precision of monitoring by compensating for deficiencies in the listening environment. After automated calibration, based on one or more listening positions, all components in a system play back at the same level and timing, with acoustical colorations removed from the monitors’ responses, leaving superb consistency and neutral sound stage imaging.
