Vitec enters audio capture market with acquisition of Rycote

Rycote Stereo-End-Caps-wide

Rycote, a UK manufacturer of microphone windshields and suspension systems has been acquired by Vitec.

Audio capture is an integral element in the creation of high quality videos and Vitec’s existing customers, whether broadcasters, videographers or independent content creators, already buy audio products.
This acquisition will therefore provide Rycote with the platform for continued growth and further advanced product development, as well as providing Vitec with an opportunity to bring complementary audio products to its customers.
Simon Davies, Rycote MD, will remain with the company post acquisition and Rycote will become part of Vitec’s Creative Solutions Division, led by Nicol Verheem.
