THE IDK Corporation STORY

For more than 29 years, IDK Corporation has been leading the ProAV market in Japan with advanced products and innovative technology, specializing in the education, corporate and digital signage markets, delivering cost effective solutions for class rooms, conference facilities, command and control centers, and for event/staging venues.

Founded in 1989 to manufacture video cables and RGB splitters for professional AV applications, IDK Corporation expanded early into matrix and presentation switchers, earning a reputation for great value by delivering a combination of high performance and flexible functionality at competitive pricing. IDK’s impressive record of ProAV innovations includes world’s firsts like the first digital presentation switcher to feature a built-in Scan Converter. IDK was an early adopter of HDMI in 2007 and of HDBase-T in 2010.

Already shipping a wide range of 4K@60 4:4:4 compliant devices, IDK expects its entire ProAV product line to achieve 4K@60 4:4:4 compliance in 2018.

All IDK products are designed and produced in Japan, with IDK’s commitment to the highest quality control in design, development and manufacture, assuring exceptional reliability, performance and functional flexibility in the field.
