SONY Corporation, or just SONY, is the world famous Japanese corporation, a multinational conglomerate based in Konan, Minato, Tokyo, Japan, dealing with design, production and sale of electronics (such as AV/IT products and components), financial services (such as insurance and banking), game consoles (such as PlayStation), telecommunications products, audio-video products, refrigerators, computers and many others. The company was founded in 1946 and it is one of the leading manufacturers of electronic products to the markets of consumer and professional electronic products. Its founders Akio Morita and Masaru Ibuka derived the name from sonus, the Latin word for sound, and also from the English slang word "sonny", since they considered themselves to be "sonny boys", a loan word into Japanese which in the early 1950s connoted smart and presentable young men.
Historically, SONY has always been remarkable for creating its own in-house standards for new recording and storage technologies, instead of adopting those of other manufacturers and standards bodies Sony (either alone or with partners) has introduced several of the most popular recording formats, including the floppy disk, Compact Disc, and Blu-ray Disc.
