Power to the speaker.
Power to the installer.


Originally launched in 2019, our Smart IP family has now expanded to include three compact loudspeaker models, plus sophisticated system management software and a simple, intuitive controller app for end users. The aesthetically beautiful Smart IP range combines the finest studio-quality loudspeaker performance with all the flexibility and convenience that networked audio brings.

“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 and integrated power amplifiers, all underpinned by Genelec’s renowned audio and build quality.”

—Aki Mäkivirta • Genelec Director of R&D


Created for professionals

Smart IP was created for discerning professionals who demand premium loudspeaker performance that can integrate quickly and seamlessly into any AV application, no matter how complex the project.

Powered by PoE and compatible with both Dante and AES67 IP audio streams, Smart IP also offers flexible loudspeaker management to provide system designers, integrators and installers with a scalable, powerful and cost-effective solution.

And with a wide range mounting accessories and colour finishes, Smart IP blends perfectly into any environment or colour scheme.

Exceptional audio

To deliver pristine audio quality, Smart IP loudspeakers utilise the same two-way active technology that has made Genelec the first choice for demanding studio and broadcast applications for over forty years.

Featuring our trademark Minimum Diffraction Enclosure and Directivity Control Waveguide, Smart IP loudspeakers provide clarity, intelligibility and beautifully uniform coverage, combined with bulletproof 24/7 reliability.

There’s much more, though. Smart IP supports uncompressed low-latency audio streaming directly into each loudspeaker, with synchronisation to sub-microsecond level for solid acoustic imaging. Each loudspeaker supports up to eight audio channels in a stream with sample rates of 32 to 96 kHz and 16 to 24 bit resolution, all manageable via Dante Controller software.

Total control

Designed to work closely with any Smart IP loudspeaker system, Smart IP Manager software allows installers to configure an almost unlimited number of rooms, zones, loudspeakers and audio channels, and includes device discovery, versatile room-equalisation tools, system organisation and status monitoring. This enables installers to deploy Smart IP loudspeakers even on highly complex, acoustically challenging projects, with a public API command set to allow external control via third-party hardware, software or house automation systems. For seamless integration with Control4, QSC Q-SYS and AMX systems, we provide a simple, ready-to-go driver, which can be downloaded and used free of charge.

For smaller, less complex installations, the Smart IP Controller app gives the end user day-to-day control of mute, volume control, power on/off and zone control, all via a smartphone or tablet. The Controller app will automatically discover the loudspeakers on the network, and offers a clean and intuitive user interface that both experts and non-technical staff alike will find straightforward and satisfying.

Sustainability

Created in conjunction with leading Finnish industrial designer Harri Koskinen, the elegantly minimalist Smart IP loudspeaker enclosures are fashioned from recycled aluminium and are built to the highest environmental standards at our headquarters in Iisalmi, Finland.

Designed for low power consumption and offering many years of reliable performance – all backed up by Genelec’s renowned service and support – Smart IP systems are a secure, long-term and environmentally sound investment.

This enables installers to deploy Smart IP loudspeakers even on highly complex, acoustically challenging projects, with a public API command set to allow external control via third-party hardware, software or house automation systems.

The Controller app will automatically discover the loudspeakers on the network, and offers a clean and intuitive user interface that both experts and non-technical staff alike will find straightforward and satisfying.

How it works

We’ve long been designing compact two-way loudspeakers, and introduced our first two-way IP studio model back in 2016, but it was Power-over-Ethernet that was key to the single cable design of Smart IP.

Smart IP utilises proprietary internal power management that delivers a significantly higher SPL than was previously possible via any conventional PoE. In fact, Smart IP can produce maximum SPL whenever needed, sufficient to power small and medium sized audio systems – a world first.

The internal power supply stores power, to enable Smart IP loudspeakers to work with real audio signals, music and speech. Since audio signals are dynamic, periods of high peak power typically have finite duration while the effective average power level, or RMS power, remains much lower.
