On Friday, July 15, 2011, Prism Media Products Limited—whose brands include Prism Sound, SADiE and Imerge—was presented with its Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the category of International Trade. The presentation was made by Mr. Hugh Duberly, Lord-Lieutenant of Cambridgeshire, and took place at the company’s headquarters in Stretham. Also present were Jim Paice, MP for South East Cambridgeshire and Mark Lloyd, Chief Executive of Cambridgeshire County Council.

Graham Boswell, sales director of Prism Media Products Limited, expressed his thanks to everyone in the company. “This Award would not have been possible without the hard work and effort put in by our staff and I would like to take this opportunity to thank them," Boswell says. "I’m really proud of them all.”

Mr. Duberly pointed out that a Queen’s Award is equivalent to an individual receiving an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours.

“As Her Majesty’s representative, I would like to congratulate Prism Media Products on receiving this Award,” he says. “This company is at the sharp end in terms of electronic engineering and what you do is enormously important to the ongoing success of UK PLC.”

After offering his congratulations, Paice took the opportunity to announce a major order from the BBC for the company’s new SADiE 6 software. The BBC has ordered its first 50 licenses for its BBC North facility in Salford and has selected SADiE as the standard “Craft Editor” for audio to complement its radio production and playout automation systems.

“While exports are key to helping the country get out of the economic mess it has been in, it is also very satisfying to be able to announce such a major contract for the domestic market,” Paice says.

The Queen’s Award for Enterprise is the highest official UK award for British business. The awards are made on the advice of the Prime Minister and his Advisory Committee, which comprises leading individuals from industry, commerce, trade unions and Government. HRH Queen Elizabeth II then confers them on her birthday, April 21.
