Technology Leadership

Where artists inspire engineers

On 29th July 1987, our first European site was opened in Salzburg. It was the technical vision and personal friendship between the conductor Herbert von Karajan and the former Sony CEO Norio Ohga as well as the legendary co-founder of Sony, Akio Morita, that led to our foundation. This unique combination and perspective on both technology and art still drives our development and business today.


Still today, our engineers are inspired by the ideas and requirements of artists. This passionate and dedicated approach to technology, the constant striving for improvement and excellent intuition for the needs of customers, consumers and markets outline our will to come up with nothing but the best. This setting inspires us to constant development, ultimately leading to our renowned technologies, services and solutions.
