Philips was founded in the Netherlands in 1891. Philips Corporation has not only produced an incredibly diverse assortment of products and solutions, it has produced a number of the consumer electronics industry's most notable inventions.

Before debuting in consumer electronics in 1925 with radio products, Philips made carbon filament lamps and patented x-ray tubes. After many successes with personal shavers and furthering the lighting industry, Philips invented the Compact Cassette in 1963, and followed that up with co-developing the LaserDisc, and co-inventing the Compact Disc, DVD, SACD, and Blu-ray.
