Amber Technology acquires Connected Media Australia
Amber Technology has acquired Connected Media Australia, the Australian distributor of RTI and Bluesound Professional.
Connected Media was founded by industry stalwart Ken Dwyer only a few years ago and appointed as the distributors of RTI (Automation), Origin Acoustics, and Bluesound Professional. Centrally located in Sydney, they represented brands across Australia and New Zealand.
Part of the Lenbrook family of brands, the Bluesound Professional range offers a modern music distribution ecosystem for commercial spaces. It includes components from streaming sources to loudspeakers to facilitate easy design, installation, setup and use of complete music systems in installations from one zone to large multi-zone facilities.
RTI is a top-tier manufacturer of control and media distribution products for the residential and commercial markets. The brand has a long and successful presence in Australia. RTI will add significantly to Amber's ability to deliver a complete solution in both markets.
RTI and Bluesound Professional will join Amber's extensive brand portfolio, which already includes DALI, Nura, Optoma, AC Infinity, One For All, Sonance, and many others.
The transaction is expected to be completed later in November 2021. The result of close co-operation between Connected Media shareholders and Amber Technology management “removes the need for any rushed changes or interruptions to customers of either company.”
Connected Media has said it will operate 'business as usual' through to the end of 2021, with plans underway for its represented brands to be transacted through Amber systems from January 2022.
