Sony was first to market, introducing Betamax in 1975 and continuing to press the Japanese government to adopt and enforce Betamax as a standard. JVC ignored this effort and busied itself licensing the VHS format to partners, including Matsushita, Japan’s largest electronics manufacturer at the time.


The first VHS decks arrived in the United States in 1977 – in spite of Sony’s two-year head start, by 1980 VHS commanded 80% of the US market.

The original Walkman cassette player, released in 1979, changed music listening habits by allowing people to listen to their music whilst on the move. This could turn everyday tasks like commuting and running into pleasurable experiences, give commuters a sense of privacy, and add a soundtrack to urban surroundings.


The Walkman was devised by Sony co-founder Masaru Ibuka, and first built by audio-division engineers Nobutosi Kiraha and Kozo Osohne in 1979.



In 1968, Sony introduced the Trinitron brand name for its lines of aperture grille cathode ray tube televisions and (later) computer monitors. Sony stopped production of Trinitron for most markets, but continued producing sets for markets such as Pakistan, Bangladesh and China. Sony discontinued its series of Trinitron computer monitors in 2005.


The company discontinued the last Trinitron-based television set in the USA in early 2007. The end of Trinitron marked the end of Sony's analog television sets and monitors.
