Philips CD anniversary

Ralf Jurrien : 2007-08-29 16:05:00
Philips CD anniversary : Exactly 25 years ago tomorrow, on August 17, 1982, Royal Philips Electronics manufactured the world’s first compact disc at a Philips factory in Langenhagen, Germany. The invention of the CD ushered in a technological revolution in the music industry as CDs - with their superior sound quality and scratch free durability - marked the beginning of the shift from analog to digital music technology. The CD became a catalyst for further innovation in digital entertainment, helping pave the way for the launch of DVD and the current introduction of Blu-ray optical media. The Philips factory in Germany, where the world’s first CD was pressed, belonged to Polygram - the recording company owned by Philips at the time.
