See page 41 Hiroshi Sasaoka, Sharp Europe’s President and CEO Sound: Setting Us Free In 1930, Albert Einstein talked about radio being a “wonderful tool of communication”. At that time, the transmission of sound by radio was a new concept, and sound, for many years, was what Consumer Electronics were all about. Then came the images. Today, sound takes on new meaning as it is used by consumers in so many different ways in their everyday lives and the sector continues to see strong growth. In this edition of IFA International, we take you on an “audio tour” of the show!
