CEDAR Audio and AMS Neve announce joint product collaborations

7 September 2001

Not many people know that, in 1989, one of the earliest demonstrations of CEDAR was to the original Neve company when it was still based in Melbourn, Cambridgeshire. Unfortunately, the technology of the time made it impractical for the two companies' products to co-exist and operate smoothly within a single host. But the idea didn't die and, twelve years later, CEDAR Audio and AMS Neve have again got together and, this time, following successful feasibility studies, they are pleased to announce that they are collaborating on a series of developments to make a range of audio restoration and noise suppression processes available on AMS Neve platforms.

"The collaboration was agreed in principle at the AES Convention in Amsterdam, back in May 2001" says Gordon Reid, Managing Director to CEDAR Audio Ltd. "However, we were determined not to announce anything until we were sure that we could produce a range of products that met both companies' and their customers' expectations and requirements. We are now looking forward to releasing the first product later this year, with more to follow in 2002 and thereafter."

Guy Gampell, Business Development Manager at AMS Neve plc adds, "The removal of noise and other unwanted artefacts is an essential part of post-production and CEDAR's standing in this area is second to none. As such, we see the integration of these processes as a logical development for our class-leading products. We look forward to a long and successful partnership with CEDAR Audio."
