History of The Tandberg Company

One of their first offices was in Oslo, Kjelsas. This office specialized in making reel to reel tape recorders.

They expanded their product line around 1960 and started producing television sets.

This led to another plant being opened in Skedsmo, Kjeller specializing in television production. The company eventually went bankrupt in the late 70's and the Chief Executive Officer (C.E.O.) lost control of the company.

Sadly, as a result he committed suicide. However, Tandberg (the company) reinvented itself under 3 different branches to specialize in television, data, and Radiofabrikk.

Tandberg created their first picture telephone in 1989. They expanded to the United States in 1995 and opened offices in Connecticut then moving to Virginia.

Eventually they established another office in Texas. In 2005 the desktop videophone phone was launched by Cisco but branded by both Cisco and Tandberg.

In 2008 the Tandberg E20 was introduced in to the market as a personal video conferencing system.

Tandberg was officially owned by Cisco in 2011.



The Tandberg video teleconferencing company is listed among the top video conferencing companies in the world with a revenue of over 900 million dollars (US).

Their competitors in this industry are Polycom, Radvision and LifeSize Communications.
