International Innovations, Inc. was formed in 1995 as an offshoot of a company whose roots in the Photo Industry extend to 1982. The original two tiered business plan called for private label production of single use cameras for the Hotel Industry and city specific packaging that included maps and coupons. The “Snap Sights!” brand was created for the city program and grew into Intova’s first internationally distributed brand.
While developing the original business plans, several clients requested waterproof cameras and a whole new direction was born. In the mid 90′s, there were no low cost, high quality waterproof cameras available. Our design team created the first disposable camera that was waterproof to 30 feet-and never looked back. Other firsts included: depths of 45, 75, 95 and 100 feet. First waterproof disposable camera with a flash. First waterproof disposable cameras with close up lens, color filter and flash diffuser. First preloaded, reusable waterproof cameras priced competitively with disposables.
As the industry evolved into the digital arena, the company evolved and grew with it. To help mark this new direction, the company name was changed from International Innovations to Intova and new product brands were developed. H20 Man was the first waterproof MP3 player on the market. Introduced at the dawn of the 21st century, H20 Man offered a whole new audio application. The biggest challenge was sound quality and the next 2 years were spent developing a new and exclusive waterproof earphone that delivers unparalleled sound quality and volume in a sealed, waterproof enclosure.
Pixtreme PX01 marked Intova’s entry to the digital camera arena in 2004. This model won the prestigious Innovations Award at the Photo Marketing Association (PMA) show. PX01 was followed by the improved and compact PX2 model in 2005. 2006 saw the introduction of our full featured, premier line of digital cameras branded Intova. These cameras offer top quality, features and performance at the most aggressive price points in the industry. To support camera sales, a full range of accessories was developed. These include filters, lenses, strobes, mounting hardware, care kits, storage and more.
Torches are the youngest member of the Intova family and have had a tremendous impact on business. The latest LED technology, combined with attractive and tough, waterproof aluminum housings have generated a whirlwind of activity. The Intova Torch selection continues to grow with a number of industry leading projects under development. Torch customers now include Divers, a wide swath of other Sportspeople, Military, Homeland Security, Fire, Rescue and many others. Quality water/sand/dustproof construction, rugged durability, great performance and leading price points are some of the elements driving this business.
Products are developed by the Intova design team and closely monitored through the production process. All models are thoroughly tested before releasing to market and extensive QC control continues through production cycles. Intova is proud of the product range and appreciative of your interest.
