Maser, the global leader in high-performance audio and multimedia solutions, is announcing that it is buying a majority stake in a Canadian audio company to build its own audio technology.
Maser will use the assets to focus on building an audio platform that will power future devices and services, the company said in a press release.
Maser said it will acquire a majority share in DSP-C Technologies, a global technology company focused on audio.
The Maser acquisition will be Maser’s largest since the late 1980s, when it purchased a controlling stake in the Canadian company SoundSoft.
MSA acquired SoundSoft in 2008, and Maser later acquired the majority stake.
SoundSoft, founded in 1987, is a company that designs and manufactures digital audio equipment and software for the audio and audio video industries.
Its products include the Sennheiser HD-7, which is the world’s most powerful, versatile and high-resolution sound system; the S6, which offers the world the world record for loudest sound system with a sound pressure level of more than 20,000 decibels; and the DSP series, which delivers powerful sound reproduction with a wide dynamic range, an extended dynamic range and a powerful acoustic imaging system.
SoundSpan, the parent company of SoundSoft, was founded in 1994 by Brian Cawley, the founder of the SoundSpan Soundlab.
Soundspan’s technology is now used by some of the world-renowned brands such as Warner Bros. and Disney, as well as some of YouTube’s most successful creators, including Snoop Dogg, Kanye West, Jay Z, and more.
SoundSpans sound systems are also used by major companies like Verizon Wireless, Verizon, Google and others.
