Harman Sells Madrigal To Vidikron Spin-Off – Crystal View
This isn’t the first time Harman, the largest U.S. AV company, has given up on manufacturing home video projectors. Some AV industry analysts say they got screwed by JVC on digital projectors too badly to stay in that market and the CRT projector market (Runco, SIM2 Seleco, Accurate Imaging, Sony, Crystal View and many others) isn’t large enough to merit Madrigal’s R&D, marketing efforts and resourses. Thus they will sell the video portion of their high line products to Crystal View, the company that is picking up, in part, where Vidikron left off.
