JVC provides a diverse selection of products, ranging from high-definition earphones to wireless deep bass headphones. JVC's wireless and true wireless models are well-known for their sleek modern design and superior sound quality. JVC has a model for everyone, from the music enthusiast to the international traveler. They offer a variety of vibrant car stereo models to suit every taste.

Today, JVC continues its tradition of innovation, exemplified by our D-ILA high definition projectors, which incorporate specialized JVC imaging chips, and their Everio camcorders, which were the world's first hard drive camcorders. JVC's superior technology extends well beyond the consumer market. Their D-ILA projection systems are used in the world's most advanced cockpit and control tower simulation systems, which are used by major airlines and the United States military. JVC ProHD cameras and professional monitors are widely used throughout the world in broadcast and network television facilities.


JVC was founded in Yokohama, Japan in 1927 as the Japanese subsidiary of the Victor Talking Machine Company of the United States. They began as a manufacturer of phonographs and also pressed the first records in Japan, enabling customers to offer a unique combination of hardware and software production capabilities. Following that, as evidenced by the world's first VHS video deck in 1976, which eventually became the global standard for consumer video and spawned an entirely new cultural phenomenon based on visual communication. JVC evolved into a technological innovator in the audio/video industry, developing new products that are a step ahead of the competition for a global audience.

Kenjiro Takayanagi, the "father of television" for successfully projecting an image onto a cathode ray tube in 1926, joined JVC following World War II. He was instrumental in the commercialization of color televisions and the development of the two-head helical scan system that later served as the basis for videotape recorders. JVC began. The invention of the 45/45 stereo record system, as well as advancements in two-head helical scan videotape recorders and four-channel audio systems, were all considered breakthroughs. JVC continued to innovate in video with the introduction of the world's first single-unit video camera/recorder in 1984 and the world's first pocket-sized digital video camcorder in 1995.


The JVC product line includes handheld camcorders, 4K camcorders, shoulder mount camcorders, studio cameras, PTZ cameras, studio monitors, field monitors, industrial monitors, large format LCD displays, DLP projectors, simulation projectors, special imaging projectors, Blu-ray recorders, headphones, car entertainment, car amplifiers, and many more accessories.
