Tokyo Electro Acoustic Company (TEAC) A big Japanese manufacturer of audio, video & instrumentation hardware with manufacturing bases in Asia and the USA. Makes consumer equipment and computer components under the TEAC name, semi-pro and professional audio and video equipment under the TASCAM name and high end audio under the Esoteric and Uesugi brands, that is not just a branding exercise, Tascam and Esoteric/Uesugi are wholly separate divisions of the company and often have separate distribution channels. Originally founded by the Tani brothers in Aug. 1953 as Tokyo Television Acoustic Company but shortly thereafter changed their name to the current one, TEAC is also active in importing and distributing hi-fi products into Japan, see : TEAC. TASCAM stands for TEAC Audio Systems Corp. AMerica and was originally founded to comply with USA laws but over there it is a requirement that any company that sells to institutional purchasers is based in he USA and in the case of military equipment actually manufactures it in one of the lower 48 states but in the end quite a lot of their professional audio range ended up being designed by the USA division. In the end even more stringent "must be made in the USA" regulations introduced recently forced the company spin off their data instrumentation business to an independent USA based company called TEAC Aerospace Industries.
