Smart Active Monitor (SAM™) Systems

Networked Smart Active Monitor (SAM™) systems feature automatic calibration to the 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 to have high confidence in a reliable and precise monitoring system that reproduces sound neutrally and without distortion.

Genelec SAM systems are today’s most advanced and flexible monitoring solutions. They are an indispensable tool for an audio professional as they are capable to automatically adapt to the acoustic environments and correct for levels, delays and room anomalies.

Built upon the solid electro-acoustical foundations of the 1200, 8000 and 7000 Series products, SAM systems can be controlled via Genelec proprietary Loudspeaker Manager (GLM™) network and software, enabling you to build a highly flexible monitoring system.

The GLM 3 is a highly intuitive and powerful monitor control networking system that manages connectivity to all SAM monitors and subwoofers on the network – up to 45. Read more about the GLM 3 software here.

Also, all acoustical features of SAM systems can be optimised for different working styles or client demands. Additionally, even if the monitors or the production projects move between rooms, you can expect SAM technology to achieve the highest consistency in monitoring, providing a neutral sound stage imaging with low distortion

Genelec SAM systems offers a comprehensive, solution-oriented, intelligently networked product range supporting analogue and digital signals in virtually any working environment.
