Clinton Electronics Corp. was founded in 1963 by Thomas L. Clinton Sr. for the purpose of manufacturing black-and-white cathode ray television tubes. Despite indicators at that time that color television was becoming more predominant, Clinton was convinced that a ready market for a quality-built cathode ray tube did exist, and he set up a manufacturing facility in Loves Park, Ill. The addition of a monitor division positioned the company as a leader in the development of products for the emerging market of electronic medical images. In early 2001 Clinton Electronics began looking for related technology with growth potential. The CCTV market was recognized as a perfect match for Clinton’s background and technology. As a distributor of products under the Clinton Brand name, the CCTV line includes cameras, monitors, digital video recorders, multiplexers, pan/tilt/zoom units and controllers, mounting brackets and housings, lenses and power supplies. The 41-year old family-owned company will be exhibiting its products at booth 4612 at the American Society for Industrial Security Seminar & Exhibits.
