Zoom Gains Tokyo Stock Exchange Listing

Zoom has announced its listing on the Tokyo Stock Exchange.

Founded in Tokyo's Akihabara district in 1983, Zoom started as a third-party developer for other brands. Seven years later, Zoom developed its proprietary DSP technology, which eventually led to the creation of its first product, the 9002 Multi-Effects Processor for guitar.

In recent years, the Zoom brand has grown in worldwide popularity. The company's portable Handy Recorder series is widely acclaimed not only among musicians, but also among sound designers and videographers. Zoom recently introduced its line of professional field recorders, the F8 and F4, used in sound recording for film and broadcast.

"Our listing in Tokyo represents a new beginning for Zoom, in which we will build upon our success in the development of sound processing, and our continuation to expand with new and original products for the wider market of audio and video content creation," said co-founder and CEO Masa Iijima.
