Philips relocates world-class research team to Cambridge

March 6th, 2008 · No Comments

World-renowned R&D facility Philips Research UK is to leave its home of 60 years in Redhill for a new location in Cambridge. The move will happen in the autumn and according to owners Philips Electronics, demonstrates a commitment to “open innovation, providing further opportunities for joint venturing, partnering and collaboration.”
Redhill has been the scene of many major AV innovations over the years, including pioneering work in MPEG-compression technology: it was in Redhill that Philips boffins first demonstrated MPEG-1 VCD, CD-I and MPEG multi-channel audio.
Terry Doyle, senior vice president at Philips Research, described 2008 as an exciting year for the company, adding: “We pride ourselves in being at the forefront of innovation and research. Ensuring we maintain this position drives our need to provide our talented scientists and technology experts with the best possible environment. We believe Cambridge offers an ecosystem where our work can really flourish.”
