DTS Goes ‘All In’ Following Tessera Takeover


On Dec. 1, HD Radio parent DTS Inc. officially became a subsidiary of Tessera Holding Corp.

That hasn’t stopped DTS from making strategic deals in the audio world.

On Thursday (12/8), DTS announced that it has acquired All In Media, a global supplier of smartphone apps and broadcast systems for the radio industry.

A 10-year-old company with offices in London and Sydney, All In Media has deep experience in broadcasting and mobile app development.

It’s led to the creation of more than 500 radio station apps for customers worldwide, including the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, U.K.-based Bauer Media Group, Australia’s Nova Entertainment, and Radioplayer — used in Great Britain and now in Canada.

All In Media’s services and products across iOS and Android platforms include custom app development, premium template apps and industry aggregator apps.

In addition, its “RAPID” broadcast system platform manages and publishes visual radio services, allowing radio stations to automatically collect and manually create rich visual content and then publish it for distribution across both digital and FM radio, online and mobile platforms.

“We are excited to expand our portfolio of radio technology solutions with the addition of All In Media,” said Tessera Holding Corp. President Jon Kirchner. “Radio reaches more consumers than any other broadcast medium, and this is a great opportunity for DTS to continue driving the progression of radio technology for broadcasters and enhance the radio consumption experience for listeners around the world in a meaningful, impactful way.”

All In Media co-founder and CTO Jason Malaure added, “I am confident our great team, technology and customer base will deliver positive results to DTS, and we will no doubt benefit from DTS’ history of innovation and resources.”

The All In deal is DTS’s second since it was acquired by Tessera.

Just two weeks after pioneering audio technology company DTS agreed to a merger acquisition with Tessera, DTS on Oct. 7 agreed to acquire London, Ontario-based Arctic Palm Technology for an undisclosed price.
