Inventor. Born in Hanover, Germany, he is best known for developing the disc record. In the 1870s, he relocated to Washington D.C. and in November 1887, he patented the first successful system for sound recording that could be mass-produced. He also invented the microphone device used as a telephone speech transmitter. Berliner's trademark, a picture of his dog Nipper listening to his master's voice being played from a gramophone was used by RCA Victor.
