NAB SHOW, LAS VEGAS, NV, April 12, 2010 — Genelec, the world’s longstanding pioneer in active monitoring, is now shipping its new 8260A Three-Way DSP System. The 8260A breaks new ground in electro-acoustic design, as mechanical, acoustical and signal-processing designs are linked closely together. The 8260A features major advances in audio driver technology, integrated with a sophisticated enclosure design, and Genelec’s proprietary Minimum Diffraction Coaxial (MDC™) Mid/High driver technology takes a big step in perfecting audio quality in professional active studio monitors.

This breakthrough in coaxial driver design provides extremely accurate imaging and improved sound quality, both on the acoustical axis as well as off-axis. The very smooth frequency response leads to outstanding clarity and definition of the inner details of the audio. The 8260A combines, for the first time, a coaxial driver (MDC) with a modern waveguide technology (Genelec’s Directivity Control Waveguide/ DCW), ensuring that drivers couple coherently over their full operating bandwidth, as well as creating coincident mid-frequency/high-frequency point source. more…

The PMD580 also has an internal clock for scheduling recording events. For instance, lectures could be automatically scheduled for recording, multiple events can be scheduled via the web interface and recorded files can then be downloaded to a local PC with drag-and-drop simplicity. Of course, files can also be uploaded automatically to a server or network location, at a user specified time.

The unit also adds balanced XLR inputs and outputs, S/PDIF as well as AES/EBU digital interfaces and RS232 control. The new PMD580 offers MP3 and WAV Recording formats, and users can select between 16-bit and 24-bit resolution.
