RycoteMicrophone windshields and suspension systems specialist Rycote has been acquired by the Vitec Group.

Based in Stroud, UK, Rycote is a market-leading developer and manufacturer of advanced microphone windshields and suspension systems serving broadcasters, videographers or independent content creators.
