VinylVideo™ is a new, wondrous and fascinating development in the history of audio-visual media. For the fi rst time in the history of technological invention,VinylVideo™ makes possible the storage of video (moving image plus sound) on analogue long-play records. Playback from the VinylVideo™ picture disk is made possible with the VinylVideo™ unit which consists of a normal turntable, a special conversion box (aka the VinylVideo™ Home Kit) and a television. In its combination of analogue and digital elements, VinylVideo™ is a relic of fake media archaeology. At the same time, VinylVideo™ is a vision of new live video mixing possibilities. By simply placing the tone arm at different points on the record, VinylVideo™ makes possible a random access manipulation of the time axis. With the extremely reduced picture and sound quality, a new mode of audio-visual perception evolves. In this way, VinylVideo™ reconstructs a home movie medium as a missing link in the history of recorded moving images while simultaneously encompassing contemporary forms of DJing and VJing.
