This day in EAR history… July 10th 1995
16 Years ago this month, we developed this advertisement (below) to convey a very simple message. “We can never be sure what new audio/video technology is right around the corner, but if it is useful and affordable, EAR will lead the way in enabling the technology and offering it immediately to our customers”.
As you can see, the “Symulator” concept ad was about a future hand-held device that could control audio and video transports and also be a tool for editing and displaying sound and picture. Sound familiar?
No, we didn’t invent the IPad but we did create quite a stir with some overseas companies who didn’t quite understand the “what-if?” nature of the ad and began calling us to find out how we developed this amazing device!
It was a bit of a challenge trying to explain to them that this “product” was only an example of some future idea and not something that was currently available! We were busy taking calls for weeks!
Today you can buy a number of products that bring amazing functionality to your palm. Most recently the iPad. Checkout out our coming events for personal factory visits or a personal demonstration.
