Radio Trevisan SpA, often written as Radiotrevisan, was an electronics
company in Trieste (Italy) that specialises in telecommunications intercept
equipment, mainly for the police and other law enforcement agencies.
The company was founded in
1970 by Marcello Skoric, together with a small group of electronics engineers
in a modest laboratory in Trieste. In the early years, the company specialised
in recording equipment for multi-channel telephone circuits.
The first product that was released by the company in the early 1970s, was
the RT-1000 tape recorder, followed by the RT-1002 in 1976.
In the early 1980s, development of the second generation of telephone
detectors and recorders was started, with the
RT-2000 being introduced around
1982. Like most Trevisan products it was built around an existing UHER
open reel tape recorder which could record up to 4 tracks simultaneously.
It was in production until 1988.
A year later, in 1989, the company moved to a new premises in Trieste,
with much more space for the rapidly expanding business.
Meanwhile the RT-2000
had been succeeded by the RT-5000 (1985).
In the mid-1990s, Trevisan made the swiss to digital technology with the
introduction of the fully digital RT-6000 in 1995.
In 2001, Radio Trevisan became part of the Laserline Group and started the
development of the next generation of telephone intercept recorders, with
the digital 8-channel RT-8000 recorder being introduced in 2002.
A year later, in 2003, the company moved to a new and modern complex
in Trieste where they are still today.
At the same time the business was expanded with the development of related
products, such as video conferencing hardware and software.
In 2004, Radio Travisan introduced the RT Uno, the first centralised
audio and data recording system.
Radio Trevisan is one of the largest suppliers of the Italian Ministry of
Justice and also sells to Police organisations in other countries. In 2015,
approx. 70 large centralised Radio Travisan recording systems were in
operation in Italy .
In 2016, after running into financial trouble, all personnel was sent home
and after a few weeks the company was shut down .
The website was lat updated in June 2015.
As of late 2016, the website has become unavailable.
