Genelec has announced the appointment of Thomas Lund as senior technologist.
Lund (pictured) has extensive experience in pro-audio development, especially for loudness metering, sound exposure, dose management, true-peak detection, immersive sound and format conversion. From a background in medicine and cross-modal perception, he has taken part in audio standardisation globally and hosted numerous seminars within film, broadcast and music. He is the current convenor of CENELEC's 'CLC TX108X/WG3' activities, tasked with preventing hearing loss from over-exposure to personal media players.
In his new position, Lund will focus on professional audio in film, broadcast, post-production and music production.
“It is a great privilege to join Genelec, one of the world's best loudspeaker manufacturers," says Lund. “I worked for 18 years at TC Electronic with some of Denmark's finest engineers, firstly as technology and product manager responsible for System 6k, broadcast devices and other high-end projects and later as CTO focusing on immersive sound, ITU/EBU loudness, 'true-peak' level and sound exposure. I’m looking forward to the challenges in my new role."
“We are very pleased to have such an experienced and competent audio professional in our team," adds Genelec's CEO, Siamäk Naghian. "Thomas’s skills, experiences and his enthusiasm for pro audio fit perfectly within our already unique team at Genelec. This will also bring us a big opportunity to further strengthen our support for our core customers in the broadcast industry."
