Etna notes that over the past 2-3 years, Audiovox has established itself as a major player, not only in the car audio and security markets where the company has its roots, but also in the consumer electronics market. “Certainly we do our own advertising, but we are also supported by major retailer programs that included front-page placement of our DVD players in Holiday Gift Guides and “special occasion” days like Mother’s and Father’s Day. More and more, we find Audiovox products running in ads that appear in prominent newspapers like USA Today, placed by key retailers. All of this, when added up, translates to major brand reinforcement for Audiovox products, and that gives us great optimism for the success of our DVD players,” he says.
