Spectral Edge Ltd

Formed in February 2011, Spectral Edge is a spinout company of the Colour and Vision Group of the School of Computing Sciences at the University of East Anglia in Norwich(United Kingdom).

In October Spectral Edge was successfully sold to one of the world’s leading companies. Apple has made its name through constant innovation and a deep understanding of the power of technology and how consumers actually use it. Spectral Edge focused from the start on improving images, starting with a novel approach to improving images for those with colour blindness and developing a range of advanced capabilities in multiple areas of image processing from the bokeh effect to the fusion of near infra red and visible spectra. The growing portfolio of IP and the capabilities of the dozen or so engineers based in Cambridge was tracked by Apple over some time, resulting eventually in the discussions that led to its sale. We have known the company and the team for many years, having invested at the very early seed stage in 2013 and we are delighted that such a fascinating technology and great group of people have found a natural and congenial home with Apple

Financial details of the transaction are not yet publically available.
