Magnavox (Latin for "great voice") (stylized as MAGNAVOX) is an American electronics company founded in the United States. Since 1974 it is a subsidiary of Dutch electronics corporation Philips.The predecessor to Magnavox was founded in 1911 by Edwin Pridham and Peter L. Jensen, co-inventors of the moving-coil loudspeaker at their lab in Napa, California under United States Patent number 1,105,924 for telephone receivers. Six decades later, Magnavox produced the Odyssey, the world's first home video game console toy. Magnavox is the brand name worn by a line of products now made by Funai under license from trademark owner Philips.
