Visco Corporation (株式会社ビスコ?) is a Japanese software company located in Kita-ku, Kyoto, Japan. It was founded in 1982 by Tetsuo Akiyama (秋山 哲雄, Akiyama Tetsuo?), and later became corporate on August 8, 1983 while revealing itself as "Visco" in Kanamecho, Toshima, Tokyo Japan. They originally developed video games for several platforms from the arcades and NES, to the Nintendo 64 and Neo Geo in the past. When Visco was one of the companies under the Taito umbrella, some of its titles back then were labeled "Taito". They also teamed up with Seta and Sammy in developing arcade games powered by the SSV (Sammy, Seta and Visco) arcade system board, until Sammy fully acquired noted game company Sega under a new company titled Sega Sammy Holdings in 2004, while Seta's parent company Aruze announced in December 2008 that Seta decided to close their doors after 23 years of existence. Therefore, the SSV board was no longer being produced. In 2008, Visco began manufacturering slot machines for casinos mostly in other southeast Asian regions. Visco also produced flat screen LCD televisions, which have been sold at major retailers such as Wal-Mart.

Famous quotes containing the word corporation:
“What I am anxious to do is to get the best bill possible with the least amount of friction.... I wish to avoid [splitting our party]. I shall do all in my power to retain the corporation tax as it is now and also force a reduction of the [tariff] schedules. It is only when all other efforts fail that Ill resort to headlines and force the people into this fight.”
—William Howard Taft (18571930)
