Our technology roots lie in the music industry, where we used our precision-plotting technology to record sound waves for Roland Corporation’s line of synthesizers. In the 1980s, this plotting technology found widespread acceptance and became the basis for our digital input and output technologies. Our mission is to continue to innovate and improve our technological edge in order to feed your ambitions.
