For more than 30 years, TASCAM has developed products for every segment of the sound and music industry. From the high-end audio professional in a major post-production studio to the novice or hobbyist at home, TASCAM is everywhere. They are a company committed to providing their customers audio/video solutions that enable breakthroughs by using sound in ways that are as exciting as they are accessible. In short, they provide tools that let people translate their creativity into reality.
After virtually creating the home recording scene during the early 1970s, TASCAM went on to achieve recognition for pioneering products in the professional recording arena as well. Their legacy of product development and innovation is reflected in the sheer number of industry firsts they've achieved, including:
- the first 1/2-inch, 4-track cassette recorder,
- the first 8-track, reel-to-reel/mixer combo,
- the first R-DAT recorder,
- the first MiniDisc digital multitracker and CD scratcher.
As evidenced by the awards and professional recognition they've received, TASCAM products are clearly in a class by themselves. Their MMR-8 digital audio dubber for the motion picture industry won an Oscar® at the Scientific and Technical Academy Awards in 2001 - based largely on its contribution to the Dolby Surround EX final mix for "The Lord of the Rings." TASCAM also won Emmy Awards in 1995 (for Outstanding Achievement in Engineering Development for the TASCAM DA-88 Digital Multitrack Recorder) and 2000 (for Outstanding Achievement in Engineering Development for the MMR-8 and MMP-16).
