The Sony Group's Purpose is to "fill the world with emotion, through the power of creativity and technology." Kando (emotion) is created and experienced by people. As such, our corporate direction is "getting closer to people" - both creators and users. Based on this fundamental approach, we have continued to pursue our founders' dreams of enriching people's lives through the power of technology, by creating innovative products and emotionally impactful content.
Currently, Sony has six business segments. One is the Game & Network Services segment, which provides new play experiences to over 100 million PlayStation® users worldwide. The Music segment aims to make Sony the company that is closest to artists and songwriters. The Pictures segment produces content IP with creators, and delivers Kando together with our distribution partners and through our own direct-to-consumer (DTC) services. We also have the Entertainment, Technology & Services segment, which provides technology and services that support creation, in addition to technology and products that provide the ultimate in visual and audio experiences. In the field of Imaging & Sensing Solutions, we provide CMOS image sensors, which are key components in smartphone mobile devices that are now indispensable for the creation of content such as images and videos. We are also working on technology that supports the safety of mobility and a solutions business using intelligent vision sensors with AI processing. And in the Financial Services business, Sony Life's Lifeplanner sales specialists are contributing as creators that actualize people's needs for peace of mind. We provide convenience in daily life and support to customers through financial services including life insurance, non-life insurance, banking and other areas.
