Question # 141

X was founded in 1990 as a company specializing in video compression and non-linear editing systems, particularly for Acorn Archimedes computers, and floated on the London Stock Exchange. X means "species" in Greek. It undertook a series of acquisitions to enter its current field, starting with the acquisition of Domark Group Limited, Simis and Big Red Software in 1995 through a reverse takeover. Its later acquisition of CentreGold plc made it one of the premier companies in its field. Most known for its Tomb Raider franchise.
