Genelec, the renowned Active Monitors manufacturer from Finland, launched their new line up of monitors called The Ones, in Mumbai on the 15th of February 2018. This was their first leg of the launch of The Ones in India, which is consequently taking place in Bangalore, Chennai & New Delhi on the 17th, 19th & 21st of February 2018. We were invited to the launch which had Mr. Siamak Naghian(MD - Genelec), Mr. Aki Makivirta(R&D Manager - Genelec) & Mr.Thomas Lund(Senior Technologist - Genelec) present for the occasion. The Genelec India team comprised of Mr. Clifford Pereira(Genelec India), M/s. Sound Team & M/s. Pandam Audio, who organised the Mumbai event.

The program kicked off with Mr. Thomas Lund speaking on the topic of Loudness Standards and what have been the effects of the same over the years on the recording and mastering fronts. We heard various clips of sound tracks that were showcasing the ill effects of the loudness wars that have taken place to the detriment of the quality of the sound.

Post lunch, it was the the turn of Mr. Siamak Naghian to say a few words about Genelec and also to thank the attendees for coming for their event. Mr. Aki Makivirta then spoke about the construction and design of The Ones and further explained the benefits of the technology behind the coaxial family of The Ones across the model range which consisted of 8331, 8341 and 8351. Mr. Aki Makivirta then spoke about immersive audio and how one can benefit from having accurate soundstage based on the principles of room design, treatment and speakers placement.

Unfortunately the room of the venue selected was less than optimal for The Ones to showcase their capabilities and hence we were not able to listen to The Ones as desired.

Post a vote of thanks from Clifford Pereira, the event was concluded and the attendees were handed out product catalogue of The Ones.

We now look forward to having an indepth listen to The Ones in future, which Mr. Clifford Pereira has promised to fulfill.

As far as prices are concerned, The Ones comprising of 8331, 8341 & 8351 retail at Rupees 3.5Lakhs, 4.5Lakhs & 5.5Lakhs per pair. The Genelec GLM Software and Calibration Mic are available at an extra cost of Rs.30000/-

Cedia had their Manufacturer Product Training & Connect - Mumbai, at Hotel Hilton on the 4th of December 2017. Stealth Acoustics and CasaDigi had presentations on their respective products and technologies showcased as per their slots during the whole day. The idea of this event being to educate the audio/video industry members to understand new products on offer as well as hands on training on installation of the same.

Stealth Acoustics showcased their range of invisible speakers and subwoofers along with their outdoor range of speakers under the stingray brand. Brian Azzano - Sales Manager, Stealth Acoustics was at hand to provide technical and install related information on the range of products from stealth acoustics.

CasaDigi, comprising of Ashish Tijare, Tejal Sheth and their technical team demonstrated how easy it is to set up their new automation ecosystem called Academi, which is a dedicated solution for a single room that can control the lighting, airconditioning, audio/video operations of a home cinema. Academi also has a great feature of media ingestion into its platform, which currently is the USP of CasaDigi. We were extremely impressed with Academi and see a lot of potential in the same being implemented in future home cinema's across the globe. Thanks to CasaDigi, we will be covering the entire operating procedures of Academi in the near future.




Overall, Cedia is doing stellar work in organising such events, which we feel are the need of the hour to not only educate the av industry professionals but also to elevate the standards of installations done by various av professionals across India.
