Riedel Communications has signed a deal to buy ASL Intercom BV, the agreement sees Riedel extend its portfolio of intercom technology for live entertainment and broadcast production environments.

ASL Intercom products are known for voice intelligibility, dependability, and user interfaces suited to fast-paced production. The company’s flagship ASL FLEXUS intercom system is notable for allowing multiple standards — Dante/AES67/AVB and RAVENNA — to coexist in a single system.

"ASL Intercom has a strong portfolio in digital partyline technology, and the company’s products adapt readily to a wide variety of applications, both small and large," said Thomas Riedel, CEO at Riedel Communications. "Intercom applications remain a core element of our business, and we are confident that we’ll quickly be able to leverage the complementary technologies of ASL Intercom to serve an even broader array of customers that can benefit from exceptional communications systems."

Headquartered in Utrecht, the Netherlands, ASL Intercom was established in 1985 by current MD Eric de Bruyn. The company offers digital and analog intercom systems for event production, broadcast, and related applications. ASL Intercom’s slate of technology deployments includes markets such as live sound, theatre, fixed installations, and broadcast.

Riedel Communications will maintain the ASL Intercom brand identity going forward, and de Bruyn will stay on in his current role.
