Sound Vision was the first company to develop commercially successful digital photography cameras and accessories, systems, and products to meet the needs of high-end studio photographers by providing a snap-in digital back for the most popular studio camera brands.
Sound Vision developed a design for a digital camera using the emerging CMOS detector technology and was quickly recognized within the industry as the premier design house for digital cameras using CMOS sensors, and entered into development agreements with sensor manufacturers extending to the ones that worked with Canon, Nikkon, Panasonic, Sony Cameras Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Conexant, , etc. to build reference designs. These designs were sold by Sound Vision to manufacturers of digital cameras such as Canon, Nikkon, Panasonic, Sony, Olympus etc.
Sound Vision later embarked on a strategy to develop Clarity-based reference designs for new types of consumer electronic devices such as MP3 players, Karaoke devices, TV based image readers for popular types of memory cards, etc. Some of these products were manufactured by Sound Vision in Asia for OEM customers who sold them under their own brand name. Sound Vision has also built products under its own Armchair Electronics brand.
