Sound Devices announces the recent acquisition of Audio Limited. The UK manufacturer and developer of wireless microphone systems is now a wholly-owned subsidiary, operating out of its Watford, UK offices with Kishore Patel and Lee Stone continuing as managing director and technical director, respectively.

Matt Anderson, CEO of Sound Devices says, “We have long admired Audio Ltd. While working with their developers to implement SuperSlot compatibility on the A10 (digital wireless microphone system), we came away impressed with their leading-edge digital RF technology. Audio Ltd’s long heritage of making great performing gear matches Sound Devices ethos.”

Audio Ltd. began making radio microphone systems for the film and television markets in 1963. Audio Ltd. systems have been used on numerous feature films, including the 1968 feature 2001: A Space Odyssey and Oscar-winning features such as Gladiator, Saving Private Ryan, and Titanic. Audio Ltd. wireless is presently used on numerous major projects, including multiple dramatic TV series. Design and engineering of RF products remain in the Watford, UK offices.

Beginning in February 2018, Sound Devices will distribute Audio Ltd’s new A10 digital wireless microphone system in North America. Audio Ltd. began distributing Sound Devices products in the United Kingdom on January 1, 2018.
