Genelec shortlisted for two 2022 AV Awards
This year we’re up for prizes in the Manufacturer of the Year category, which we won in 2021, and the Corporate Project of the Year category with the installation of almost 500 of our loudspeakers at Supercell’s Finnish headquarters.
Genelec’s entry for the 2022 Manufacturer of the Year Award will be evaluated by AV Magazine’s panel of experts based on how we’ve continued and, in many cases, developed our award-winning approach to areas like training, diversity, workplace culture and sustainability, since we accepted the trophy last year. At Genelec, we feel it’s incredibly important not just to operate responsibly, but to pro-actively identify and adopt new ways of working. In light of this, we’re extremely pleased to be nominated once again, amongst an impressive group of ten companies that are all helping to set global standards for doing business in the AV world.
We’re proud of all of our installations, yet some have an additional ‘wow factor’ that simply cannot be denied, like the monumental Genelec AV system at Supercell’s headquarters in Helsinki. Before making their final decision, the panel will assess the mobile gaming giant’s new installation by looking at the system type, method of construction, innovative problem solving, green credentials and other benefits of the setup. Consisting of over 300 Genelec Smart IP loudspeakers, such an ambitious yet environmentally conscious project is only made possible by utilising Smart IP’s low-power, single-cable networked audio technology, and taking advantage of the built-in longevity of our loudspeakers - which allowed Supercell to re-use nearly 200 Genelecs from their previous premises.
Completely unrivalled as a badge of excellence in the AV industry, the AV Awards continues to set the benchmark for the highest possible professional standards and best practice in the field. Since its launch in 1999, the Awards have been instrumental in recognising the outstanding achievements of exceptional individuals, companies, projects and technology across the AV, events and production sectors, raising standards along the way.
The Awards remain independent, robust and transparent through a yearly auditing of their judging process and categories, using a carefully curated steering committee. This ensures that all entries are properly and fairly evaluated.
This year’s AV Awards will take place in London on the 4th of November - so stay tuned!
Finally, we'd like to wish all our esteemed industry colleagues the best of luck!
