I found this image on a Dutch newssite today. It shows photo's from events that happend todat trough the years.
The text reads the following:

March 18, 1987 - Philips will launch a combi CD-Videoplayer on the European market in August.
The device can play 12, 20 and 60 centimeter discs. The smallest goldcolored disc would be the
ideal carrier for videoclips. The other formats will be suitable for concerts, documentaries and movies.
The sound is digital recorded, the picture analog because of todays TV-technologie.

Yeah, 60 cm, that's what it says. I think the writer confused the 30 cm with the 60 minutes CLV capacity.

Just watched TBlood tonight & they had a flashback where they made Eric & Pam run a video store & they had a laserdisc sign in a corner shot showing a first MGM pressing of 1935s Mutiny on the Bounty. Thought you may find this interesting.

In the Richard Pryor film Bustin' Loose, there is a scene with a rack of Discovision discs. Another Discovision reference is in Airport '79. They use a disc for the in-flight announcement. Of course these were both shameless plugs in Universal films. :lol:


Just watched Airport '77 for the first time of my life and was surprised to see a LaserDisc :D and a very big laserdisc player.
Looks like a LD commercial...

TD Ameritrade has a commercial where a presentation is being shown on a projector, and the image onscreen says Laserdisc. I'll have to find it and watch it again.

In the game Wasteland 2, you can find a laserdisc as a junk item :angel: , the caption for it reads "You can fit half a movie onto this thing!"

In the music video Batdance by Prince you can see him scratching a laserdisc with a batman logo on it.

While walking along the temple side streets in Tainan (Taiwan), I found a parked food cart with an interesting sun deflection system :)

Regular Show: "The Last Laserdisc Player"


They had a follow up episode to this a couple weeks back called "Format Wars II". I'm biased a bit towards the show, but I thought it was entertaining. If interested, and don't care to watch it, here's the rundown of the episode:
