About Roku

Roku sells products for the distribution and playback of digital media in the digital signage and kiosk markets, and provides solutions for Internet distribution of music and audio for retail, hotels and other business. Roku was founded in October 2002 by Anthony Wood, the inventor of the digital video recorder (DVR) and 20-year veteran of the consumer electronics industry. His successful history as an innovator in digital media and consumer electronics gives him an unusually keen awareness of consumer needs and the ways in which technology can enhance home entertainment. Roku,which means "six" in Japanese,is the sixth company built around Anthony's inventions, each of which defied imagination at their introduction. A privately held company, Roku is profitable and has offices in Palo Alto, California, Cambridge, UK, and Springdale, Arkansas.
