Digigram Acquires AuviTran

The acquired company specializes in audio for installation, live sound and public address

Audio manufucturer Digigram has acquired audio networking specialist AuviTran.

According to Digigram, as the manufacturer turns its focus to the audio pro market, this acquisition “marks the beginning of a development phase towards the market of critical communications.” Digigram, in a press release, said it hopes to increase its sales and double its revenues within three years.

Both companies are based in France. The acquisition will reinforce the headcount of employees located at Digigram’s HQ offices in Montbonnot and at its regional branch in Singapore. AuviTran has a team of six and Digigram has a team of 25. A company representative told Radio World that no jobs will be lost.

Operational changes include the appointment of Yves Ansade, founder of AuviTran, to the position of global R&D director, where he will oversee the technical strategy for the expanded company.

“Digigram and AuviTran combined R&D departments reach 40 percent of the global staff,” said Ansade in the release. “Both companies will continue to operate their respective brands and clients; however, the acquisition definitely strengthens our position on commercial audio, live sound, broadcast markets, as well as addressing the critical communications market with a large panel of solutions”

Jérémie Weber, president of Digigram, said 2023 marks a renewed effort by Digigram towards the critical communications market. “The part of our business that we used to name ‘industrial’ amounts for 35 percent of our turnover,” he said. “We have rebranded that ‘industrial’ share into critical communications as it actually describes best the real nature of these clients.”

Notable Digigram products include its IP-based audio contribution solutions (IQOYA range), its ALP-X sound cards range and other digital sound cards and audio gateways, all designed in France since 1985.

Founded in 2003, AuviTran specializes in the development of audio networking solutions for installation, live sound and public address markets.  AuviTran solutions are in place at facilities such as the Sydney Opera, New York Madison Square Garden and Paris Stade de France.
