High-end digital signal processing company closes latest financing round.

Uppsala, Sweden (March 14, 2019)—Digital audio optimization company Dirac has completed a $13.2-million round of financing led by current investors. Ambitously, the DSP company intends to use the proceeds to develop “intelligent audio solutions” across consumer and pro industries, aiming to create an end-to-end DSP chain of audio solutions, employed from capture to playback.

“As consumer devices decrease in size and expand in complexity, digital signal processing is the key to unlocking their full audio potential and creating premium sound experiences,” stated Dirac CEO Mathias Johansson.

“With this new funding, we can take our approach to digitizing sound systems even further – creating more intelligent and adaptive audio processing solutions that establish new standards in both audio playback and capture across a variety of applications. In doing so, we establish ourselves as the industry’s leading one-stop-shop for an entire premium digital audio chain and provide customers with the best possible sound experience for every use case.”

Hand in hand with those product development initiatives, Dirac has appointed former Harman International senior vice president of Research & Development Armin Prommersberger as chief technology officer and opened a Copenhagen Research & Development Center.

In addition to its headquarters in Uppsala, Sweden, Dirac operates regional offices in Shenzhen, Beijing and Shanghai, China, and has representation in Germany, Japan, Korea, and USA.
