Sony Corporation is a multinational conglomerate corporation that does business primarily in the electronics industry. Headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, the company was established in 1946 and saw its beginnings as an electronics shop in a department store. With significant innovation, such as inventing Japan’s first tape recorder, Sony quickly rose to become one of the biggest leaders in the electronics industry today.

The company is ranked as a Fortune Global 500 company, one of the top 20 Semiconductor sales leaders, and the third largest television manufacturer in the world. Employing over 140,000 people, Sony has met yearly revenues of over 7.76 Trillion Japanese Yen with an operating income of over 26 Billion Japanese Yen.

Although Sony offers products and services in entertainment and financial industries, their focus and primary sales are their electronics. Sony’s product lines include televisions, home audio, home theater, cameras, mobile phones, tablets, gaming systems, disk storage, flash memory, and electronic accessories.

In recent news, on September 12rd, 2014, Sony announced their new camera, the PXW-FS7 Compact 4K XDCAM, which will be added to their already expansive product line. This new innovative camera features 4K resolution recording capabilities, native E-mount technology, XAVC-L codec efficiency, and XQD transfer capabilities. The camera is expected to be released late 2014 and will have a price tag of approximately $10,000.00.
