TV & Video
In 1960, Sony launched the world’s first direct-view portable transistor TV, and developed the world’s first transistor-based videotape recorder the following year.
Sony has since continued to release televisions and video equipment that boast industry-leading technologies and designs. Going forward, through the stunning reality of visuals created by big-screen TVs and dynamic sound, Sony will transform the viewing experience from “watching” to “feeling.”
Sony launched Japan’s first tape recorder in 1950, then went on to release the Walkman® personal stereo cassette tape player in 1979.
