MediaHeads

An emergence and convergence of media.

 

 Video offerings have transitioned from Television content on VHS, Beta and DVD formats over the years to 'play now' online streaming at presnt. 


What were the devices and technologies the content traveled in its 'access' journey? As each form and format arose the content was converted so that it could always be accessed; movies, TV series, shows and those catchy commercials everyone remembers from every generation.

MediaHeads found an interesting beginning about the first appearance of Video Tape Recording.  


The starting point began with Bing Crosby, really. Yes, the world renound crooner himself after reaching a pinnacle of success established Crosby Enterprises and developed a process utilizing magnetics to create a TV recorder in 1950.
