Anthem Electronics has announced the launch of ARC Genesis, the third generation of its Anthem Room Correction (ARC) software. Available for free from AnthemARC.com, this proprietary digital signal processing technology works with compatible 2-channel and home theater audio products and offers advanced measurement functions, acoustic correction algorithms, user-configurable target curve customization, a streamlined user interface, and support for both Mac and Windows.
When used with compatible receivers, processors, and preamplifiers with built-in bass management functions, ARC Genesis also analyzes the frequency response of speakers and subwoofers to calculate and upload custom high-pass and low-pass filter settings that ensure natural-sounding levels of deep, well-blended bass throughout an audio system.
An audio system’s performance is always negatively affected by a room’s unique characteristics. The size and shape of the room, its construction, the furnishings, and other factors cause standing waves, resonances, and reflections that can color the sound played by loudspeakers. Utilizing proprietary algorithms developed by Anthem engineers, ARC Genesis creates custom correction curves that retain the favorable acoustic signature of speakers and remove negative room contributions. These custom filters are then used to program high-quality digital signal processing (DSP) technology embedded within compatible audio products.
