AEQ: Merger delivers sound and vision13 September 2014
Following a merger with Kroma Telecom, two new product lines are being showcased by AEQ at IBC.
On display are a range of TFT broadcast video monitors in sizes from four to 46-inches, as well as different series for different settings, such as QuadSplit, HD monitors and 3G.
There are also digital intercom systems, starting at 16×16 cross-points up to systems with over 1000 x 1000 ports, offering a full range of intercom panels for these systems. Hybrid systems, wired and wireless belt-packs and Wi-Fi base stations complete the product range.
AEQ, a privately owned company, reached the agreement to acquire 100% of the Kroma shares in a deal that also includes acquisition of the rights to the brand name. The manufacturing and technical installations move to AEQ’s headquarters in Madrid, together with the majority of Kroma personnel.
AEQ’s reseller network will be reinforced with Kroma’s dealers and distributors and its office in Mexico.
AEQ-Kroma said it would dedicate 25 percent of its human resources to R&D and that through this merger, the continuity of the only Spanish manufacturer of TFT monitors and intercom systems for broadcast applications would be assured.
