Pioneer through the ages
The Pioneer brand is a by-product of Pioneer Corporation, a Japanese multinational corporation that specializes in digital entertainment products. The company is based in Kawasaki, Kanagawa, Japan. Its founder, Nozomu Matsumoto, started off the company as a radion and speaker repair shop in 1938.
Pioneer was a key-player in the development of the interactive cable TV, the Laser Disc player, the first automotive Compact Disc player, the first detachable face car stereo, Supertuner technology, DVD and DVD recording, plasma display, and Organic LED Display (OLED).
The company started off with the name of Pioneer Electronic Corporation in 1961 but later changed into Pioneer Corporation to better suit the international markets. It was after the company had renamed itself that business bloomed and sales rocketed, with the introduction to the world’s first DVD recorder compatible with the DVD-RW format in the 1999 to the introduction of the DJ equipment portfolio with the releases of the CDJ-900 and the CDJ-2000 in 2009. This continued into the launching of the XDJ-AERO, the company’s first wireless DJ system that plays music from smartphones and tablets via Wi-Fi.
As of September 2014, Pioneer successfully launched its DJM-750, further crafting itself in the long-run of high quality DJ equipment.
