Control system manufacturer Savant has announced that it has acquires Artison, an audio products manufacturer.
The acquisition enables Savant to leverage Artison’s key patents and audio engineering expertise toward future innovative entertainment technologies.
Artison was founded by engineer Cary Christie in 2003. It holds a number of patents related to advanced speaker technologies, and is also scheduled to release a compact multi-channel amplifier technology later this year. Artison currently offers a full line of specialty loudspeakers with customisable grilles including sound bars, subwoofers and surrounds for home theatre applications.
This acquisition will expand Savant’s Pro Audio offering allowing integrators to deliver audio over IP solutions.
“With Savant and Artison working cohesively together, we will unveil exciting new products engineered specifically for the luxury home and commercial markets,” says Savant chief executive Robert Madonna.
“As the demand for premium home entertainment solutions continues to climb, we will now have the capacity to offer best-in-class audio solutions as part of the Savant connected home experience.”
