History of the name[edit]

The name EKTA is composed of the first parts of words "screens" (экраны) and "board" (табло). Initially, the company's name was written in Russian as “ЭКТА” and in the company logo the Ukrainian version “EKTA” was used. However in 2003, the logo was changed and the official name EKTA was approved. Thus only Latin symbols are left in the name of the company.
