Audix acquired by Vitec

US mic brand joins Joby, Manfrotto & Rycote

Prestigious US mic brand Audix have been acquired by the Vitec Group. Audix will be well known to SOS readers for their high-quality live and recording microphones, while Vitec encompass a number of brands related to the broadcast and videography sector. Thus, Audix now join brands such as Joby (the company behind the GorillaPod camera mount), Manfrotto (a leading manufacturer of camera and lighting mounts), and Rycote, whose excellent microphone shockmounting systems we've reviewed a number of times in SOS over the years.

About their new acquisition, and the future of Audix under Vitec's auspices, the latter tell us: “As part of the Vitec family, the Audix team and facility in Oregon will become Vitec Imaging Solutions’ Audio R&D Centre of Excellence, enabling the acceleration of in-house microphone product design, development and manufacturing across all Vitec audio brands.”
