    Your teacher was right. It was the future of video. Not a long future, not an illustrious one, but at some point it was the future.

    Digitized video on discs was very much the future. It just got miniaturized (like everything else) into the DVD and Blu-Ray. Digitizing in general still is the future - only the medium changes.

    The black stallion Returns
    Coma
    Gunfight @ the OK carrol (A western I assume??)

    I seem to have been mistaken.... THE MOVIES I SAW WERE VIDEODISCS not LASERDISCS!


    Those things look fascinating! (They are played like a regular record! (Needle,etc))

    Ah yes, I had a huge collection of CED disks in the day. I still have some 30 to 40 of them stored away somewhere. I fired up the CED player not too long ago and it still worked fine.
