DK-Technologies notes its 20th anniversary in May.
The Danish audio and video company is run by CEO Karsten Hansen, who started the firm from his bedroom in 1987. An important early customer was the BBC, which purchased an audio monitoring system in 1991 that is still in use at Broadcasting House, London. The system involved monitoring 4,000 audio sources and channeling them into eight control disks.
The firm set up a U.K. branch 10 years ago and in 2001 purchased the Studio Products Division of ProTelevision, doubling its staff and moving into video.
In 2005 it acquired Danish company Dag2000, which produced digital bargraph and stereo peak program meters for broadcast. It now also has branch offices in Denmark, Germany and the United States.
