Coretronic acquires image processing company Calibre

The ODM supplier Coretronic Corporation (Coretronic) Taiwan, manufacturing DLP projectors, has completed the acquisition of Calibre, a privately held British image processing technology manufacturer based in Bradford, Yorkshire, UK.

The acquisition of Calibre expands Coretronic’s technology capability by the addition of Calibre’s range of HQUltra image processing technology and in-house R&D capabilities.

“It reflects Coretronic’s strategy to strengthen its position in display and image processing technology with a set of capabilities afforded by the Calibre team. This will help Coretronic Group with its plans to further advance in the pro-av markets as well as assisting with entry into the expanding direct-view LED display markets,” says SY Chen, President at Coretronic, Taiwan. “The acquisition will accelerate the company into new markets as well as to help Coretronic continue to drive its move to being an all-round display systems provider. In particular Calibre will leverage Coretronic Group’s sales coverage and pro-av channel sales, particularly in Asia, North America and Europe.”

Former Calibre CEO, Tim Brooksbank will lead as Managing Director of Calibre UK Ltd, now a wholly owned subsidiary of Coretronic. “We’re delighted to become part of the Coretronic family. We share a common entrepreneurial ethos. This opens up new opportunities for Calibre’s technology, products and staff as part of the worldwide Coretronic Group,” said Brooksbank. (8/17)
