I always wanted to know why film looked better than video. Moving electronic images have as long a history but were invented for a different purpose.

I grew up with the two technologies (film and video) in parallel and to me they always seemed like two ways of achieving the same ends: recording and replaying moving images. But their histories are quite distinct. Film was always a way to capture moving images for later replaying. Video started out as a way to transfer images from one place to another instantaneously. This dates back to the first fax machine, mechanical TV, live broadcast tv and ultimately videotapes. This history focuses on the early decades of video and not the more recent switches to chip cameras and solid state storage. Maybe that's a story for another day.

my body functions had been delayed for like a minute because my mind is trying to comprehend the information it received
Alexander was trying to do a live stream back in 1843 and ended up with this. In historical context lol
Past, present, future - compticion

Oh boy. How many kids learned, today, that “YouTube” means, “You can put yourself on TV, kind of”?
so informative. love it man!
Where would we be without accidental discoveries
This is wild.
Crazy that within one hundred or so years, technology, transport, engineering etc has increased at a rate that we've arguably never progressed before. I am not superstitious, I like to see facts before I believe anything. I always wonder at the back of my mind though, was there some litttle green man who came down from some distant galaxy and had a nice chat with the early pioneers such as Brunel, Eiffel etc and popped back down again to tell the Wright brothers that their idea is good and then left someone else a load of alien airfix models. I know this is complete fantasy but hey, everyone loves a good story...
I love B&H! Rumor has it that B and H stands for Baruch Hashem! (it dosen't but I like this version better)
So the first video ever was of a cat? How fitting...
Аll this video history has brought us to TikTok????
I watched this vedio because my friends share it in his WhatsApp status.
It was amazing to know the history of television 📺
Really good video. Thank you.
Video was generated not “invented.” Video has been here for thousands of years
Didn't even mention Philo Farnsworth?
