Founded in 1969, SSL has since expanded to its present 15 acre science park in Oxfordshire, England. The company invents, designs and manufactures technology for the manipulation of sound and the production and delivery of video.
SSL employs over 160 people worldwide and has regional offices in Los Angeles, Milan, New York, Paris and Tokyo, with additional support provided by an international network of distributors.
