TEAC - The History of Recording and Sound (Part 8)

(Looking for part seven of the article?)

TASCAM and the Emmy Awards

The Emmy Awards are given in recognition of a significant contribution to the American broadcasting industry. TASCAM has played an integral role in broadcasting not only in Japan but also in America, and for this we have had the honor of being awarded 2 Emmy Awards for our digital multi-track recorders.

The first award was for the DA-88 in 1995. The DA-88 is an 8 track digital multi-track recorder that uses Hi8 video cassette tapes. Its low running costs and the ability to connect up to 16 machines together simultaneously made it a vital new addition to broadcast recording systems.

The transport on the DA-88 is the same as the one used on NASA space shuttles. NASA was shocked by the fact that it could survive a 9g impact, exclaiming "My God we only needed to be able to salvage the data from it, we didn't expect it to still work!"

Then in 2000, the multi-track recorder and player MMR-8 and MMP-16 won a second Emmy Award. An Academy press release stated at the time, "The MMR-8/MMP-16 and DA-88 are two of the very few such audio offerings to ever win this award. TASCAM is literally the only pro audio equipment manufacturer in the world to have ever won an Emmy twice within such a narrow time frame."
