In 1970 RCA issued the first Quadraphonic 4-Channel 8-track tape cartridges (Quad-8, later called just Q8).
followed by quadraphonic vinyl recordings (primarily of classical music) recorded in the CD-4 "Quadradisc" format, which required a special cartridge, a 4-channel amplifier and four separate speakers.
In the 1950s, RCA also had three subsidiary specialty labels, Groove, Vik and X.
In 1954 RCA introduced the 'Gruve-Gard' system for its vinyl recordings, in which the center and edge of the disc was made thicker than the playing area, thus reducing scuff marks during handling and when used on a turntable with a record changer, and most of RCA's competitors quickly copied this innovation.
RCA distributed its recordings in the UK (through Decca) on the RCA and RCA Victor labels, but they were obliged to use the RCA "lightning bolt" logo in Britain instead of the well-known 'Nipper' logo (which it had long used in America) since that trademark was owned by EMI's HMV subsidary in most other countries.
In one of the most controversial chapters in its history, RCA Victor decided to demolish its Camden NJ warehouse in the early 1960s.
It proved a sound investment however -- Presley became RCA's biggest selling recording artist and one of the biggest-selling performers of all time.
RCA was incorporated in 1919 to control US patents held by General Electric, AT&T, Westinghouse and United Fruit.
History RCA group history RCA Records of Australia Pty Ltd was until 1985 (when it became BMG) a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Radio Corporation of America (RCA), the giant US-based broadcasting, recording and electronics company.
The post-WWII structure of the RCA recording group was the outcome of a long and complicated series of mergers, takeovers and divestitures that stretched from the late 1800s to the late 1930s.
However RCA was unable to use the Nipper logo in Commonwealth countries (including Australia and New Zealand), where it was owned by EMI and used on their HMV label.
Other subsidaries included RCA Camden (which specialised in reissuing historic classical and popular recordings from the RCA catalog), RCA Victrola (a budget label introduced in the 1960s to reissue classical recordings from Red Seal catalogue) and RCA Custom.Then, in 1938 ARC-BRC was taken over by RCA's major rival CBS and the Columbia label thus became part of the CBS Records group.However, CBS only had the rights to use the Columbia name in the USA, Canada and Japan, and EMI retained the right to use the Columbia name in most other countries (including the British Empire/Commonwealth).As well as its successful popular, country and classical repertoire, RCA released many notable albums of musicals, including the original Broadway cast recordings of , which became one of the best-selling soundtracks of all time.
