Liberty AV Solutions acquires Intelix

Liberty AV Solutions, a division of WESCO Distribution, announced this week that it has acquired Intelix, a Wisconsin-based manufacturer of audio and video components and software. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

In a statement, Liberty President John Dace said that Intelix, which boasts an extensive line of HDMI-over-coax extenders, distribution amplifiers, scalers, converters, matrix switchers, room combiners, and multi-zone paging systems, is helping to "enable the analog-to-digital transition."

"Intelix has built a fine reputation among AV professionals over the last decade," he said. "Its latest generation of products promise to make the shift to HDMI easier, reliable and more profitable."

Liberty said that it will devote its resources to bringing the Intelix catalog to market, while Intelix will remain focused on researching and developing new products.

"We are a research and development company first," said Intelix founder Steve Cohan. "We’ll continue to delve deeply into discovering what it takes to make HDMI products work more efficiently. As it has been from the beginning, our goal is to help system designers and integrators adapt to today’s realities as quickly as possible and in a pain-free environment."

Cohan will remain with the company to help guide operations, according to the statement.
