Amsterdam, Netherlands (September 7, 2012)—TSL Professional Products Ltd. (PPL) has acquired surround sound microphone and audio processing technology manufacturer SoundField Ltd.
With the addition of the SoundField range, TSL PPL’s product portfolio will further expand its support of 5.1 audio in the broadcast workflow. TSL PPL can now offer customers solutions for use throughout the production process, from acquisition to delivery.
“The addition of SoundField to the TSL PPL fold couldn’t have come at a better time,” says Chris Exelby, managing director of TSL Professional Products Ltd., a manufacturer of hardware and software audio monitoring, tally and power management solutions for the broadcast industry. “We can now bring a more complete offering to market and further our mission to help our customers deliver the highest quality sound to the viewer at home.”
Pieter Schillebeeckx, head of research and development for SoundField, Ltd., says “I am very excited about this acquisition and don’t think we could have put the future of SoundField’s legacy in better hands. The established global sales and marketing of TSL PPL will greatly improve the visibility of our unique microphone and upmix products worldwide. And the extensive manufacturing and design expertise of TSL PPL, combined with SoundField’s know-how, will ensure SoundField’s tradition of creating high-quality 5.1 audio equipment will continue to thrive and develop.”
SoundField products are used by broadcasters such as BSkyB (UK), Disney (USA), BBC (UK), Sogecable (Spain), NRK (Norway), RTS (Serbia) and SABC (South Africa).
Customer support, marketing and sales will be resourced from TSL PPL. Effective immediately, orders for SoundField products can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org, as TSL PPL has initiated efforts to increase product supply moving forward.
The newly acquired range of surround microphones and upmix/downmix solutions are being demonstrated on TSL’s booth at the IBC show in Amsterdam.
