JVC (Japan Victor Company) was founded in Japan in 1927 as a subsidiary of the American-owned Victor Talking Machine Company, which was acquired by the Radio Corporation of America in 1929. Through the years JVC went through many owners including Panasonic until in 2008 it was merged with Kenwood electronics. This became JVCKenwood Holdings which is currently the parent company of JVC.
JVC started out manufacturing only phonographs and records, until 1932 when they began making radios. JVC began manufacturing the first locally-made television in Japan in 1939. JVC is also well known for developing the VHS format in the late 1970s, which became the dominant video format in the market.
With close to one hundred years of experience making TVs, it is no wonder that JVC has a reputation as a good brand known for quality TVs at affordable prices. While JVC stopped manufacturing their own TVs in 2008, they provide manufacturing licenses to various original equipment manufacturers. These include the Chinese company Shenzhen MTC, Dixon Carphone, and Viera Group, each supplying different regions.
