One of the key engineers in the development of the Quadruplex video recorder for Ampex was Ray Dolby, who went on to form Dolby Laboratories, a pioneer in audio noise reduction systems.
Ampex Corporation is the parent company of Ampex Data Systems which manufactures digital archiving systems, principally for the broadcast industry.

 Ampex wins a round in its online slander lawsuit
Company lawyers had argued in court filings that Ampex President Edward J. Bramson had been slandered by the allegedly false online claims by "Exampex" that Bramson had once observed that marijuana smokers should be "taken out and shot" and that a single mother who had contracted AIDS got what she deserved.
Defense attorneys, who include second- and third-year Stanford law school students, contended in court papers that Ampex's bid to subpoena their client's name ought to be denied because company policies enunciated by Bramson were fair game for criticism, anonymous or otherwise, because he is a public figure, well known in the media.
Ampex attorneys countered that the company and its executives have a right to know the identity of their accuser and that there is ample precedent in emerging Internet law for courts to ensure that targets of defamatory statements have an opportunity to redress grievances.
