Smart IP

Smart IP is Genelec's scalable Open IP networking technology platform, deriving power (PoE or PoE+ Power-over-Ethernet), audio and management all via a single standard CAT cable. The technology offers detailed loudspeaker configuration, supervision and calibration on an individual, room, zone and system level - without performance sacrifice. Each model, including the 4435A, reproduces audio with the highest level of uniform coverage, clarity and intelligibility, and can be freely networked with other Smart IP models to flawlessly play back Dante and AES67 streams.

Uncompromised sound quality

With over four decades as the world's leading provider of professional monitoring loudspeakers, Genelec is uniquely placed to offer AV loudspeaker solutions with the highest quality of truthful, detailed and rich sound. Whenever audio is intended to create an attractive experience that visitors enjoy, Genelec's Smart IP product line ensures a robust and flexible system that's designed and manufactured to meet the highest sustainability standards, giving decades of reliable daily use.

Ease of installation

The 4435A is simple and easy to install, requiring only a single CAT cable for power, audio and management, fastening in place with a simple latch system and hiding away with its low-profile magnetically attached grilles. Genelec Smart IP Manager software takes care of device discovery and allows the detailed configuration and status monitoring of loudspeakers, rooms, zones and audio channels. Day-to-day control of basic system functions is made even simpler by our intuitive Smart IP Controller app for iOS and Android devices. Additionally, our Smart IP solutions benefit from a public API command set and a series of freely available drivers that allow easy integration with a range of common control automation systems.

Loudspeaker Qualities

The 4435A supports uncompressed low-latency audio over IP with loudspeaker synchronisation to sub-microsecond level for solid acoustic imaging, and delivers a response of 58 Hz - 39 kHz via two independent internal 50 W Class D amplification stages – which drive a 130 mm (5 1/8 inch) woofer and 19 mm (3/4 inch) metal dome tweeter.

-The two-way 4435A features proprietary internal power supply technology that stores power in order produce an impressive 104 dB of short term SPL whenever needed.
