Riedel has acquired Archwave, a Swiss audio-networking and streaming company that promotes open standards for the interconnection of audio and video equipment.
According to the company, This new partnership will create a strong research and development (R&D) hub in Zurich and increase Riedel’s global engineering team to over 100 engineers, while expanding its R&D capabilities for IP and standards, such as AES67.
“At Riedel, IP standards are vital not only for our intercom portfolio, but also for all of the other Riedel product lines,” Thomas Riedel, Founder and CEO of Riedel Communications, said. “With our new engineering team in Switzerland, we now have all the tools we need to create the plug-and-play workflows that our clients need for their transition to IP.”
As part of this agreement, Riedel will also acquire Cymatic Audio, an audio company within the music industry.
With this cooperation, Archwave and Cymatic Audio will remain an autonomous unit within Riedel, while Riedel will adopt Archwave technology solutions for its own product portfolio.
