Zoran Corporation Nasdaq - ZRAN is a multinational digital technology company, headquartered in Silicon Valley. The name Zoran is derived from the Hebrew word for silicon. Zoran is incorporated in the state of Delaware and has offices in Canada, China, England, Germany, India, Israel, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and the US.

The company was founded in 1983.

Due to the similarity between the Zoran Corporation's name and that of Max Zorin's fictional company in the James Bond film A View to a Kill, which was released in 1985, a disclaimer had to be added the film to stress that there was no connection between the fictional company and the Zoran Corporation - none of the films producers had been aware of the Zoran Corporation's existence when selecting a name for the villainous Max Zorin (Christopher Walken) and his fictional organisation.
