ASK Proxima originated from Europe and is now recognised as a leading display imaging international brand consisting of a wide range of professional and commercial projectors. ASK Proxima with almost 25 years in existence was established in 1986 and by ASK of Norway, is now owned by AMT [Advanced Micro-Display Technologies Co.,Ltd. ASK was then the global R&D leader of LCD display panels. In 1991, the ASK brand was taken over by Tandberg Data (the world’s leading memory products manufacturer at the time) which later collaborated with Polaroid to launch the manufacturing of multimedia LCD projectors under the brand “For Polaroid – by ASK”, thus establishing a sales distribution network throughout Europe and Asia. In 1998, ASK brand merged with Proxima Corporation to enter the US market under a new name, Proxima ASA in 2000. In early 2006, InFocus Corporation (then became the world’s second largest projector manufacturer) acquired Proxima ASA and re-launched the brand as ASK Proxima. In mid 2007, AMT acquired the SMT [In Focus technology park in China] as well as ASK Proxima brand in early 2011.
