AVPro Global, Inc., has acquired THENAUDIO from X-VUE, LLC., in a move to expand its footprint in the commercial and residential connectivity solutions market segments. AVPro Global Inc., is, of course, the parent company of AVPro EdgeAudioControl ProMurideo, and Bullet Train AV distribution products.

The THENAUDIO product line includes singular, high-performance connectivity solutions for processing HDMI and more advanced HDMI eARC signals. Notable products in the portfolio include the the ZONE2-PRO 8k eARC Processer, which enables eARC into dual outputs for two audio systems, and the SHARC-V2 8k eARC Audio Processor, which enables any sound system to accept TV eARC/ACR sound formats while supporting CEC switching and command passthrough using manufacturer’s original TV remote controllers.

Through the deal, AVPro Global will assume ownership of the THENAUDIO business, and X-VUE founder and CEO, Juha Nurminen will join AVPro Global as director of engineering, with an immediate focus on AudioControl Pro.

The acquisition of THENAUDIO follows AVPro Global’s acquisition of AudioControl in August of 2023, and it provides AVPro Edge with more connectivity resources, and dealers with more connectivity product options.

“The acquisition of THENAUDIO, as an innovative company that pushes the envelope on what is possible in audio/video systems connectivity, complements our existing AVPro Edge, AudioControl Pro, Murideo, and Bullet Train high-performance brand positions in both the residential and commercial audio/video distribution spaces, and provides AVPro with an additional growth platform while expanding our capabilities in the audio/video connectivity solutions markets,” says Jeff Murray, CEO and founder, AVPro Global. “We believe this transaction will create added value for AVPro Global customers and look forward to THENAUDIO’s CEO, Juha Nurminen, joining our best-in-class engineering team,” Murray adds.
