WORLD: TSL Professional Products Ltd (PPL) has announced that it has acquired SoundField Ltd. The latest addition to the company’s portfolio sees TSL offer its customers solutions for use throughout the production process, ranging from acquisition to delivery.
‘The addition of SoundField to the TSL PPL fold couldn’t have come at a better time,’ stated Chris Exelby, managing director of TSL Professional Products Ltd. ‘With TSL PPL audio monitors becoming a standard fixture in many broadcast production facilities, we can now bring a more complete offering to the market and further our mission to help our customers deliver the highest quality sound to the viewer at home.’
‘I am very excited about this acquisition and don’t think we could have put the future of SoundField’s legacy in better hands,’ added Pieter Schillebeeckx, head of research and development for SoundField Ltd. ‘The established global sales and marketing of TSL PPL will greatly improve the visibility of our microphone and upmix products worldwide. And the 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.’
‘I have been aware of SoundField for many years and recognised the brand as representing excellence in microphone systems,’ commented Martin Dyster, head of audio, TSL Professional Products Ltd. ‘In recent years, SoundField has established itself as a leader in audio processing technologies, with the UPM-1 stereo-to-5.1 upmixer considered by many leading engineers as possessing one of the best-sounding upmix algorithms available. TSL PPL’s purchase of SoundField Ltd pools together the creative minds of two of the industry’s most forward-thinking audio companies. I look forward with great excitement to the results of this collaboration.’
