Archwave is an audio-networking and streaming specialist that vigorously promotes open standards for the interconnection of audio and video equipment in professional environments. The company holds the broadest portfolio of audio networking development solutions, and offers a complete line of USB, RAVENNA, and AES67 interoperability solutions, NMOS discovery, registration, and connection management as well as AES70 solutions for sound-reinforcement, broadcast and theatre applications.
Arie van den Broek, Archwave's Chief Executive Officer is also the mastermind behind Cymatic Audio, the creators of an affordable range of multitrack recorders, which are able to record directly from Ethernet connections and are also affordable multitrack USB audio interfaces.
As part of the acquisition agreement, Riedel will also acquire Cymatic Audio, allowing Riedel to enter new markets and get closer to musicians, who already rely on Riedel technology in the background. Cymatic recorders and interfaces are equipped with Archwave’s AudioLan cards and are able to connect directly to any industry standard AES67 and Ravenna audio network, an ideal solution for live sound (virtual sound-check) and studio digital mixers, routing systems, splitters, digital snakes, and more.
With this cooperation, Archwave and Cymatic Audio will remain an autonomous unit within Riedel, while Riedel will adopt Archwave technology solutions for its own product portfolio.
“It is not often that such a strong and obviously strategic fit presents itself, but that is what I found with Riedel. Riedel's strength, operational excellence, and commitment to open technology were the factors that drove the development of this new relationship. We also appreciate that the deal offers new channels to markets within the existing Riedel organization. The team and I are extremely happy and excited to move forward as part of the Riedel family,” says Arie van den Broek, CEO of Archwave Technologies B.V.
