1980 Buick Skylark Dealer Demo

This is form a 1979 promotional LaserDisc that I found it is for 1980 model year Buick's. At the beginning of this disc you will hear some audio tones, these where used to program the PR-7800 LaserDisc player, and you will also see single frames of what is on the entire disc as well as still pictures of each model of Buick available that year This WAS the first interactive video experience, the on board CPU in the PR-7800 allowed you to program the viewing and interact with the disc using the remote control. The PR-7800 was intorduced 3 years before the IBM PC-XT In 1978 GM contracted with Pioneer and MCA/DiscoVision to put the Pioneer PR-7800 LaserDisc player into its dealerships, the discs where to be used for demonstrations as in this disc or for training purposes. Now in the early days of laserDisc manufacture there was a very high failure rate, sometimes as high as 85% during the mastering/pressing process, so that left a lot of sides of discs that where unusable. Well these where used to fill the blank side of a disc, the "dead" side was then coated with a special plastic that was clear to the human eye, but it would not reflect the laser beam, thus the side would not play. Well the coating can be removed with rubbing alcohol, which is what I did. These reject discs will ONLY play on the older style of laserDisc player that uses a laser tube

1978 Chevrolet Pro Serv Training - "Just a Little Misunderstanding" - MCA DiscoVision
This program was found on a dead side of the third disc of "The Choirboys" from MCA DiscoVision. As this was a dead side, the disc containing this program was likely from a rejected yield. Rejected disc halves were repurposed as dead sides for manufacturing single-sided discs, complete with a layer of residue on the dead side which is meant to prevent that side's playback. However, this residue is easily removed by cleaning it off with isopropanol. Of course, this meant that a person who had the ability to play the content contained within the dead side had content he/she wasn't supposed to have, which would be a problem. As a result, DiscoVision would eventually abandon this practice at around the time MCA and IBM partnered up to form DiscoVision Associates in 1979. The dead sides wound up being transparent discs, allowing people to see the glue used to bond the two disc halves together. The glue had a greenish-brownish appearance, which is dubbed "green slime" by DiscoVision collectors. The LaserDisc containing this program was played on a Pioneer LD-660. Audio is monaural with no CX noise reduction employed. The program did not appear to have any player control, time and frame codes in the vertical blanking and did not seem to have a data dump on the right analog audio track before the start of the program for interactive functions. If played on a machine such as a Pioneer LD-660 or a Pioneer/DiscoVision PR-7820, it would just play the disc from beginning up to the physical end of the track. This is a 1978 Chevrolet Pro Serv educational filmstrip "Just a Little Misunderstanding" with soundtrack, produced by the Sandy Corporation for the Chevrolet Motor Division of the General Motors Corporation. This educational program details the importance of good and clear communication between customers and automobile dealer/service center employees.





Experience Cadillac Eldorado - 1979
I have owned tens of thousands of 8-tracks, and this is the first one of these I have ever seen. Unlike your typical car 8-track that would give you some music to play in your new car, this cart extolls the virtues of your new 1979 Eldorado. It has the same program on all four channels. I recorded it to the computer, and added a photo montage. Enjoy!





B.B. King singing Juts a Little Bit Of Love on ABC's Music Scene in 1969
This was captured form Laser Disc using my Pioneer CLD-D703 LaserDisc player and captured by running the video into my Canon HV-30 HDV Camcorder. A very good live performance by B.B. King. There was a time where audio mattered in a TV show.





Eli's Coming by Three Dog Night, on ABC's Music Scene in 1969
In this clip you will see a variety of video effects, a lot using multiple tape machines running in sequence, this would not have been a live piece but would have been pre produced onto 2" quad tape and then just inserted into the show.
