The legend continues

YG Nagra in Brazil 2 German audio

In a time when a simple phone can make a 4K video recording, it is difficult to travel back to 1951 and imagine the technical breakthrough that Stefan Kudelski made with the Nagra I. For the first time in recording history a single person could carry a high quality recorder on his shoulder and move around freely without heavy equipment or a scientific crew!

The Nagra I, as well as its prestigious siblings, simply created a small revolution in the art of sound recording. This invention also changed the face of cinematography, journalism and science. Thus, Nagra and Stefan Kudelski received numerous prestigious awards, the most iconic being the Oscars® in 1978 and 1991.

Today the legend continues and our company and products are acclaimed around the globe by our industry as well as the press ; our presentation at shows are also highly esteemed. Here is a selected list of our awards:
