Professional audiovisual supplier Biamp has acquired Denmark-based AV control systems manufacturer Neets A/S in a move that enhances Biamp’s portfolio of control room systems.
In a press release, Biamp calls their new subsidiary a respected independent maker of AV control systems that brings with it a comprehensive family of device controllers, control interfaces and associated software known for ease of use and design.
With the acquisition, Biamp hopes to gain a larger foothold in the AV control system market as well as capitalize on recent additions to Neets’ portfolio of conferencing applications, media bars, cameras, device hubs and in-table systems.
Neets will join Biamp as a new product family within the company’s portfolio, and business functions will be gradually blended to form a single Biamp business, according to the announcement.
Rashid Skaf, Biamp president, CEO and co-chairman, said in a statement that he has been following Neets for several years, citing the ease of use and popularity of their products among designers, programmers, installers and end users.
“I’m extremely pleased to welcome Neets into the Biamp family,” Skaf said. “Their products directly complement our solutions and will allow us to target an even wider range of venue types, sizes, and use cases and offer even more complete systems. This acquisition makes it easier than ever for our customers to stay within the Biamp solutions family for all applications.”
The acquisition is Biamp’s first since 2019, when it acquired Community Loudspeakers and Apart Audio.
“I am excited to combine forces with Biamp and deliver the benefits of Neets’ solutions to a global audience. The Neets team has spent over two decades building and refining the best control solutions in the industry,” said Michael Jarl Christensen, CEO of Neets A/S. “As part of Biamp, with its broad product portfolio and worldwide distribution system, Neets will be able to deliver its products to a far larger customer community. Together, Biamp will offer one of the broadest, most capable family of AV solutions available from any vendor anywhere in the world.”
