Moviola: Throughout the history of film editing, starting with the 1924 Moviola, this company has been the standard - Moviola being both the equipment and the company. Unlike many other companies that worked with film (Kodak and Polaroid come immediately to mind), Moviola is not resting on its Oscars, but has made the transition to digital. This twentieth century word shares its etymology with Victrola.
