Angry Birds

Mar 16, 2013




The need to create the perfect audio soundtrack for the game required Rovio to invest heavily in Genelec monitors at its headquarters in Helsinki. In fact,  speakers have been installed into every room at the company’s new offices.

Rovio opted for Genelec 8020B and 8040A active monitors which have been arranged in both stereo and surround configurations.

“When we got the first sound working on Angry Birds, it was a magical moment,” says Niklas Hed, Chief Operating Officer of Rovio Mobile. “Sound is so important to creating a virtual world. Now, when we’re working or showing stuff to visitors we’re not playing the audio on TV speakers but through the Genelec setups instead. We wanted that association with quality which is what Genelec provides.”


The compact  8020B Active 2-way monitoring loudspeaker has been designed for monitoring in difficult listening environments, particularly those compromised by lack of space. However, size is no handicap to performance as the 8020A two-way active monitoring system incorporates Genelec's acoustic design innovations to minimise all forms of distortion.



Boasting performance comparable to much larger systems, but in a compact package, the bi-amplified 8040A monitoring loudspeaker is ideal for use in many situations where a wide frequency response is needed but space is limited. Uses include nearfield monitoring, project/home studios, workstations, broadcast and TC control rooms and mobile production vehicles.
