Today, Amplifier Technologies Inc. (ATI) announced its acquisition of Datasat Digital Entertainment (DDE). With this acquisition, ATI adds high end audio processing to its product lineup. Datasat products will retain the company name, and products will be assembled at both ATI’s Montebello, CA manufacturing facilities, and existing company facilities in Moorpark, CA.
ATI was founded in 1993 and has grown into affordable force in the world of consumer professional audio. The company also owns the Theta Digital (high-end amps and processors) and BGW (commercial theater amplifier) brands. But the Datasat acquisition gives it a device capable of handling both high-end consumer and professional 3D immersive audio applications including advanced Dolby Atmos configurations.
“Our products are well known and considered by many to be one of the leading audio processing technologies in the world,” stated Morris Kessler, owner and chief designer at ATI. “The addition of Datasat and their renowned software engineering to our extensive hardware capability and existing lines including ATI, Theta Digital and BGW will provide consumers and professional exhibitors all over the world with the highest quality audio in feature-rich and flexible configurations for any audio application.”
At CEDIA 2017, Datasat will be featured in several demos including ATI’s booth, as well as PCM, RBH, and Dynaudio.
“We are pleased to see Datasat joining the ATI family,” said Robert McKinley, EVP of Operations at Datasat Digital Entertainment. “There’s a great deal of synergy between the companies already but the combined sales, engineering and operations teams will now work hand in hand to provide continuity with our current product offering while simultaneously moving exciting new initiatives forward to better serve and support the marketplace. This is a great opportunity for anyone that values the highest quality, most reliable audio products available.”
