The JVC Corporation began in 1927 and initially produced phonograph machines. Since the company's inception, JVC continues to manufacturer audio and video equipment sold all over the world. The company also produced the first VHS video recorder that became an industry standard, shortly after being introduced in 1976. Aside from VHS video recorders, JVC began manufacturing DVD players for the consumer market.
