IDK’s 30th Anniversary: A message from our President
On Friday October 27th, 1989, IDK was incorporated in Japan. Now in 2019, it’s with great pride that I am announcing our 30th anniversary.
This is a significant milestone for our business and it gives us an opportunity to think back to our humble beginnings. Back to a time when we had only a few people on staff, in a very modest facility. We started out by developing several models of video distribution amplifiers and video adaptor cables. Over the years, we have expanded our capabilities, our solutions-portfolio and service-support to meet the needs of our customers. I wish to express my sincerest gratitude to each and every IDK customer who has supported us along the way.
Together, we have watched as Pro AV shifted from analog video technology to digital video. Now we are all watching as the industry undergoes another significant transition towards IP-based solutions. This paradigm shift involves video, audio, control, and surveillance systems, as nearly everything we can think of, converges within the network domain.
We’ve been successfully riding the new-technology wave by creating and providing state-of-the-art Pro AV products; such as, multi switchers, video converters, matrix switchers, and AV over IP systems. We, as a leading provider of high-quality solutions for the Pro AV industry, develop, manufacture and test all our products in our own facilities in Japan. With all operations fully in-house, we have the unique ability to add features and improve performance more quickly as technology advances and as needed to meet evolving user demands. Being vertically integrated, we can also preemptively
manage supply chain challenges, while closely monitoring our product quality.
As technology is continually being reshaped, we are stepping up our efforts at IDK and are committed to making the next big leap for the Pro AV industry.
Again, I would like to thank you for your belief in us. I hope to be able to nurture the good relationships which we have always shared to achieve our visions for success together.
