Audinate completes acquisition of Silex Insight video business
Audinate, developer of the Dante platform, has completed the acquisition of the video business of Silex Insight, based in Belgium (the transaction was initially announced 13 December 2021).

The Silex video business produces video networking products for manufacturers of AV equipment.

The acquisition of the Silex video business allows Audinate to accelerate its strategic vision for integrated audio and video over IP and adds breadth and depth to its AV-over-IP product line up. In addition, the transaction increases video FPGA expertise within the company, and cements critical mass for its video engineering team in Europe.

“Since the development of our first Dante AV product we have been committed to bringing the simplicity and interoperability of Dante to the video-over-IP market,” states Audinate co-founder and CEO Aidan Williams. “With this acquisition, we are doubling down on that strategy. The video codecs and deep product expertise in the team, in combination with our Dante networking technology, will enable us to go to market with a variety of full-service video offerings.”

The acquisition is a carve-out of the video business from Silex, which retains its existing security business.
