Riedel welcomes Embrionix into its family

Riedel Communications has acquired Canadian IP video processor manufacturer Embrionix, strengthening its IP-enabled hardware and software capabilities and broadening its portfolio of video solutions in the process.

Embrionix was established in 2009, developing miniaturised, high-density IP gateways, IP signal processors and converters for use in broadcast video. It pioneered the use of small form-factor pluggable (SFP) modules for signal processing and has been granted more than 20 patents.

‘Sometimes, things just fit,’ explained Thomas Riedel, CEO of Riedel Communications. ‘Just like Riedel, Embrionix started out as a garage company and has managed to preserve its innovation-driven start-up spirit on its way to global success. Our company philosophies are an ideal match, and our product portfolios and competencies complement each other perfectly.’

Riedel has also pursued a networked approach to video infrastructures with its MediorNet real-time media network. As the German manufacturer welcomes Embrionix into its family, it gains access to a workforce comprising engineers who have specialised in cutting-edge IP and video technologies. The Embrionix team, headquartered in Montreal, employs 50 engineers, with design, R&D and sales offices around the world. As a result of the acquisition, the Riedel staff count tops 700 employees.

‘Riedel is an international player, and we can offer Embrionix all of the benefits of a comprehensive global sales and support infrastructure,’ furthered Riedel. ‘Embrionix, on the other hand, has access to unique technologies and proprietary knowledge that will be instrumental in our quest for innovation leadership in the field of video infrastructures.’

Embrionix CEO Renaud Lavoie also commented on the acquisition: ‘As a hybrid IP environment, Riedel’s MediorNet is trusted by customers around the globe as an ideal bridge to the IP world,’ he said. ‘Our high-density IP gateway and processing solutions will greatly enhance the MediorNet ecosystem and expand its application areas, making it more powerful than ever. In recent years, our young company has experienced phenomenal growth. Now, the partnership with Riedel will further accelerate demand for our technologies and pave the way to an even brighter future. We are thrilled to continue the Embrionix success story as a member of the Riedel family, and I am happy to be part of this journey.’
