Artison-Savant.jpgWhole-home automation company Savant announced today that it has acquired Artison, an audio company that's perhaps best known for its architectural and customizable speaker designs. As explained in the press release below, Artison holds a number of patents related to speaker technologies and is scheduled to release a compact multichannel amplifier technology later this year, both of which will help Savant expand its Pro Audio offerings.   

From Savant
Savant has announced the acquisition of Artison, an audio products manufacturer based in Minden, NV. Artison has earned a reputation for delivering high-performance whole-house audio and home theater solutions that merge elegant, unobtrusive aesthetics with exceptionally detailed sound quality. The acquisition enables Savant to leverage Artison's key patents and audio engineering expertise toward future innovative entertainment technologies.

Artison was founded by acclaimed engineer Cary Christie in 2003 and has demonstrated an ongoing culture of innovation in the architectural loudspeaker and subwoofer categories. Artison holds a number of patents related to advanced speaker technologies, and is also scheduled to release a unique, compact multi-channel amplifier technology later this year. Artison currently offers a full line of specialty loudspeakers with customizable grilles including sound bars, subwoofers and surrounds for home theater applications.

This acquisition will expand Savant's Pro Audio offering, allowing integrators to deliver audio over IP solutions. "With Savant and Artison working cohesively together, we will unveil exciting new products engineered specifically for the luxury home and commercial markets," stated Savant CEO Robert Madonna. "As the demand for premium home entertainment solutions continues to climb, we will now have the capacity to offer best-in-class audio solutions as part of the Savant connected home experience."

"Myself and the Artison team are excited for the opportunity to join the Savant family," said Cary Christie. "We look forward to driving new product initiatives at Savant, working toward the design, engineering and delivery of truly innovative, superior performance entertainment and control products."
