The Magnavox brand originates back to 1917 when the World’s first moving coil speaker was invented in a lab in Napa, California.
Due to this invention for the first time in human history the world witnessed a human voice that could be heard by an entire town. The product was named:
Magnavox ~ Latin for ‘Great Voice’.
It became a prime piece of US history and the foundation of a trusted brand for almost a century linked to dozens of notable achievements such as the first game console (Magnavox Odyssey) as well as World’s first plasma computer panels.
Throughout the years Magnavox’s visual appearance took several forms relevant to its time. Ranging from multiple revisions of its initial appearance (the historic great voice featuring a lion’s head), a shield covering the history of the brand and its influence on entertainment, into a contemporary wordmark in 1982 and the wordmark it is today.
Just as the visual appearance of Magnavox adapted and remained relevant over time so does its identity and the quality it stands for. The popularity of the Magnavox brand is as strong as ever before and its remarkable history attracts many fans and non-profit organizations. To see one of them visit: www.magnavoxhistory.com.
Today, the Magnavox brand is ubiquitous on popular products found in households around the world: LED/Smart Televisions, Blu-ray/DVD Players, Smart Home products, Quad-copters, Air conditioners, Heaters and many more.
Even in today’s rapidly changing markets consumers continue to choose Magnavox products to enjoy the values it stands for; quality and high performance at a smart price.
Magnavox...Smart. Very Smart.
