HOW WE DO IT
At WISI Norden AB we are dedicated to developing technology and products that make TV-content available to everyone. By developing an open hardware platform that is designed to conform to all currently known standards globally, we can achieve simplicity, flexibility, speed in integration, and a product range that matches the increasing need for technical developments and care for our environment. In all our products we have a strong focus on modularity, cost-efficiency, and environmentally friendly solutions.
In order to create products of exceptional quality we prioritise imagination, craftsmanship, commitment and respect. We believe that when it is fun and inspiring to go to work, we do a better job. By respecting each other’s differences and showing consideration for the people around us, we create a sense of fellowship in our working environment, where both collaborating and taking initiatives go without saying.
We have always worked with different kinds of TV equipment, but not always as a part of the WISI group. Actually, we sprung from the coming together of two Swedish companies:
Aurora Communication Systems AB was founded in 1986, as a spin-off from the Luxor/Nokia division of TV and satellite systems. This was the starting point for developing technology for analog cable TV distribution.
A2B Electronics was founded in 1997, set out to explore the market for the new digital transmissions technology. A2B launched several inventive solutions for digital TV in the Nordic TV markets. The move into digital TV was highly successful, and Aurora and A2B merged in 2001 under the name A2B Electronics AB.
In 2005, A2B Electronics launched the semi-professional product Multibox – a unique product that simultaneously delivers three digital terrestrial TV channels to all TV sets in the home. Its successor was released as the MyM/MyM Pro product line adopted for new standards in today’s digital TV transmissions.
The product series EXM was the starting point for technology based on software generated functionality, which means that a minimum number of hardware modules is needed to form a complete product range.
In 2009 Wilhelm Sihn Jr International GmbH & Co KG purchased A2B Electronics, and in 2010 we launched our Chameleon product line. The Chameleon product line develops the minimalistic concept of the EXM further, and contains only one hardware. This hardware is software-configurable for all acquisition, processing and distribution methods.
In 2012, A2B Electronics AB changed name to WISI Norden AB. The name reflects the position within the WISI Group as responsible for the Nordic market. Our company continues to grow and is actively developing new markets globally.
