Fairlight Seeks to Sell its Pro Audio Business

Fairlight.AU, the Australian technology development company best known for its professional audio products used globally by major broadcasters and producers, has announced it is actively seeking a buyer for its professional audio technology.

Fairlight said it wants to enter discussions with organizations that wish to leverage its professional audio technologies to augment their offerings and enhance their competitive positions in this rapidly evolving market.

Fairlight said it anticipated that with the level of interest for the technologies that offer the potential of a key strategic advantage as part of a larger portfolio, it should not be long before a transaction is complete.

“Over its long history, Fairlight has continually developed highly innovative professional audio technologies that are used by a large number of major content producers around the world” said Philip Belcher, CEO.

“With a range of innovative new AES67 compliant audio distribution products approaching release, it has been decided that the potential for Fairlight’s professional audio technologies is much larger than can be achieved under the current ownership.”

The company said it will now focus its efforts on its patented picture key work surface technology which it licences to manufacturers of highly user interactive tactile equipment.

Fairlight has been designing, engineering and manufacturing cutting edge, professional digital audio technology for 40 years.
