Months after acquiring Studer Audio, Evertz Technologies Ltd has reinforced its commitment to this iconic brand by relocating Studer’s manufacturing facilities from Hungary to Evertz headquarters in Canada.
The move forms part of a long-term plan to develop next generation products that meet the needs of future customers in the broadcast, live entertainment/concert events, sports, esports, stadium, arena and house of worship markets.
Established in Switzerland in 1948, Studer initially manufactured professional tape decks and analog consoles but began manufacturing digital mixing consoles when it was acquired by Harman International Industries in 1994.
Vince Silvestri, Vice President Software Systems at Everz, says: “Studer’s history and reputation for quality is undisputed.
“As the current stewards of this legendary brand we are committed to developing high quality audio products and solutions to serve current and future live media customers.”
Evertz has already integrated Studer Audio with its Software Defined Video Networking (SDVN) solutions, which are leading the industry’s transition to IP.
With products such as Studer Vista digital consoles and Infinity Core audio mixing and processing now part of Evertz SDVN, customers can access complete solutions for audio and video orchestration, monitoring and analysis.
Having identified many opportunities for Studer products, Evertz is putting the full force of its sales team behind the brand as well as focusing resources on ongoing product development.
