Prism Sound was founded in 1987 by Graham Boswell and Ian Dennis. They had first met when working on the ground-breaking DSP program at world-renowned audio mixing desk manufacturer Rupert Neve & Company in Cambridge, England. In its early years, Prism Sound became an acclaimed Research & Development consultancy, specializing in digital audio applications. The company recently acquired the business and intellectual property rights of SADiE, formerly owned by Studio Audio and Video Ltd.
The acquisition marks a new chapter in the histories of both businesses.
