Los Angeles, CA (September 30, 2016)—At the AES Convention, Audio-Technica announced it has formed a new subsidiary, Alteros, which will focus on creating high-end wireless products used in live audio production, broadcast studios, sporting events, theaters and other applications.
The announcement of the formation of Alteros, an Audio-Technica company, was made by Philip Cajka, Audio-Technica U.S. President and CEO, and Jackie Green, Audio-Technica U.S. VP R&D/Engineering and Alteros President and CTO. In addition to Jackie Green, the Alteros management team includes Brian Fair, Executive Vice President Digital Engineering, and Bob Green, Executive Vice President, Product Engineering.
Nearly ten years ago, under the direction of Green, Audio-Technica developed the first commercial sound implementation of UWB technology with its SpectraPulse ultra-wideband (UWB) wireless microphone system.
“Alteros represents Audio-Technica’s absolute dedication and commitment to developing the highest-level technical tools in support of the high-end audio market. Our first product addresses the issues facing broadcasters and audio professionals operating in the wireless realm,” stated Phil Cajka.
“Jackie and her team have been working closely with leading broadcast engineers and their technical staff, who are all providing input which ultimately will result in a line of market-driven products under the Alteros brand. This is an exceptionally exciting time for Audio-Technica, and we expect great things to be coming from Alteros in the near future.”
