The company's products include entertainment communications systems and large scale automated paging control systems.

Commenting on the acquisition, Creative Audio Engineering Director, Neil Packer, said, "Rarely in business do companies achieve such a compelling fit as we have achieved with Biamp today. Our engineering competencies will compliment the work Biamp is doing extremely well, and there is a strong cultural fit as well."
