The renowned radio and TV post-production company Bluebox, based in Burgdorf Switzerland, has expanded its Genelec DSP monitoring system to 5.1. The investment in Genelec DSP stereo system done in late 2007 brought to Bluebox Crew a great deal of enthusiasm. At that time, they already thought about surround setups since the Dolby Digital demand from the Radio and TV world is growing every day. The logical extension into multichannel was a matter of time.
During the autumn trade show season in Europe Genelec has had various flyer campaigns where we promised to give out pairs of 6010A's.
Now, as we are safely back at home, we are pleased to announce the list of winners!

Barely known outside his native Sweden, Evert Taube is something of an iconic figure for many of his fellow Swedish countrymen.
After Taube’s death in 1976, a huge archive of his personal artefacts – including rare recordings, original manuscripts, drawings and photographs – lay in storage for three decades, until surviving family members agreed to loan some of them to Gothenburg’s Liseberg Amusement Park so that they could be put on public display in a new pavilion dedicated to his life and work.

M8 Media is a classic one-stop-shop post production house situated around the broadcasting hub of Glasgow, Scotland. Until now though, the one thing missing from its list of offerings has been audio dubbing.
