Nippon Electric Company (NEC) One of the largest Japanese electronics companies and the longest running, and has supplied electric and electronic components for more than a century and has production facilities on every (populated) continent. Pioneered the digital transmission of audio and manufactured the first commercial digital audio products in 1965 but has mostly remained out of sight to the consumers since the company has concentrated on the manufacture of components on one hand and professional, computing, communication and broadcast products on the other, that is with the exception of Australia where the company has for a long time been a supplier of both brown goods and other consumer products that have traditionally been produced locally. NEC has recently entered the consumer AV market globally with home theatre projectors and suchlike and they supply consumer computing equipment including some AV equipment under the Packard Bell trademark. Note that the authorities in a number of Asian countries recently liquidated a large counterfeiting ring that specialised in making products with the NEC brand on it, this was an unusually large and sophisticated operation that sold possibly millions of items over a number of years, so if you have a NEC branded audio or AV product bought between 2001 and 2006 in Asia it's worth checking out if it is real or not, since obviously the original company provides neither service nor support for those products.
