Not a rare retail LaserDisc, but a LaserDisc filled with footage for use at theme parks, TV channels, and crud like that?

Here's a great example:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/laserdi ... 347734198/

It was for use at Walt Disney World.

There must've been a lot of 'em filled with stuff from Disney, Warner Bros., Nickelodeon, Universal, Nintendo, etc.

There are several threads here that cover stuff like this. Kiosk stuff, amusement, etc. They’re often pretty fun to see.

I got this one called "Ride the Comix"

Apparently this was at the Disney Quest arcade in Disney Springs before it was replaced by the NBA experience.

Appears to be an intro video for the game.

24 years ago I bought a used industrial LD player at a pawn shop. There was a disc inside titled "Windows 95". 1 or 2 sided CAV talking about the new Microsoft software...

"That's the kind of sh!t that needs to be preserved".

A thread about industrial LDs would be nice. I could talk about ILDs I once had:

Early 80's AMC/Renault training discs. Their one eight inch is in the database here.

1989 Chrysler/Plymouth training discs...

I meant to say, "Forum".

And I'm serious.

I would think that it would be a natural.

Most people here are the Home Theater Types. And could care less about Industrial LDs...

Wouldn't them fit under "Other oddities"?

=> Hi-Vision, Squeeze, PAL+, HDVS and other oddities
