Established in 2007, JoeCo’s research and development activity has focussed on its revolutionary Blackbox Recorder, designed for capturing live multi-channel audio. Since the recorder’s launch in 2009, JoeCo has won several prestigious awards including a PLASA Award for Innovation (UK) and a series of international awards from industry press, readers and trade associations including Best Recorder and Best New Company.

2010 saw the release of the Blackbox Player, the first dedicated multi-channel playback device specifically designed to replay backing tracks or multiple surround stems for live shows and themed entertainment. 2011 sees the arrival of the new Blackbox BBR64-MADI Recorder, designed to record and replay up to 64 channels of MADI data and the Blackbox BBR-Dante Recorder, designed to record and replay up to 32 channels of audio from a Dante network.

In 2013 JoeCo introduced the JoeCoRemote, which enables the JoeCo BlackBox Recorder and JoeCo BlackBox Player to be remotely controlled via iPad. The JoeCoRemote app, in combination with a specially designed hardware interface, offers control of any 24-channel or 64-channel BlackBox Recorder/Player.

Distributed in over 30 countries, the Blackbox family's growing customer base includes touring bands, outside broadcast facilities, theatres and worship venues, broadcasters, film and TV sound recordists and post-production facilities.
