Projector company Optoma moves into audio with acquisition13 November 2014
International projector brand Optoma has acquired NuForce, a maker of premium consumer audio products.
“Optoma has built its reputation creating high-performing projection products,” said Len Carlton, managing director of Optoma EMEA. “Audio was a logical progression for Optoma, bringing together great video with equally great sound. Optoma has been at the forefront of home entertainment display innovation for nearly two decades and we are very excited to now be able to complete that experience with the addition of superb audio.”
NuForce is known for its clean design and superior sound. A streamlined NuForce sound range will contain:
• Home cinema products that complement Optoma’s home projectors
• Wireless systems to deliver clear hi-fi sound from a mobile device, and
• Earphones for a premium listening experience anywhere, anytime.
The range will also include NuForce’s multi-award winning digital amplifier and DAC products.
“Sound is such an important part of the home entertainment experience,” said Justin Halls, Optoma’s head of product marketing. “A cinema-sized image coupled with great sound can transform any living space.”
Optoma’s new sound range will be available across Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Russia in the New Year.
