Digigram Acquires OROS

It's the second acquisition for the audio company in the past eight months

Digigram has acquired OROS, a company that specializes in noise and vibration testing.

“This acquisition marks the acceleration of the group’s build-up strategy focused on critical audio,” Digigram said in the announcement. Terms were not disclosed.

It said the sale expands its headcount to approximately 60 employees. Both companies were founded in 1985 in Grenoble and are based in France, but Digigram said it now has offices “stretching from the headquarters in Montbonnot to the companies’ subsidiaries based in Singapore, the United States and China.”

“While the two companies already operate in different segments of the critical communications market, with customers in the civil and military aerospace and maritime sectors, their joint endeavors will increase their presence in the industrial, defense, security and transport markets,” Digigram said.

Digigram products familiar to broadcasters include IP-based IQOYA codecs and ALP-X sound cards.

OROS systems serve the energy, maritime, aeronautics, automotive, production and automation markets.

Last fall Digigram acquired AuviTran, a specialist in installation, live sound and public address.
