Our History

Audyssey was established in 2002 as a spin-off from the National Science Foundation engineering research center at the University of Southern California. The company was founded by Professor Chris Kyriakakis from the USC Viterbi School of Engineering and Professor Tomlinson Holman from the USC School of Cinematic Arts, along with two former USC students and researchers, Dr. Sunil Bharitkar and Philip Hilmes.

The first Audyssey technology - MultEQ - was integrated into home theater receivers in 2004 to address the negative effects of room acoustics on sound reproduction. Since then, Audyssey has adapted its core technologies to overcome acoustical limitations in other settings, including premium automobiles, professional studios, consumer electronics, mobile devices and movie theaters. Over the course of two decades, Audyssey has amassed an extensive portfolio of intellectual property, licensed by many of the world’s most notable automotive, consumer technology and entertainment brands.

Audyssey is privately held and headquartered in Los Angeles, CA.
