This newly developed analog technology re-writes the history of moving images and audio recording: the VinylVideo® stores both moving pictures and synchronized sounds on a classic record. This opens up the possibilities of new visual experiences as well as a return to a more direct narrative. With its unparalleled charm, VinylVideo® offers the opportunity to bring the art of substantial representation back to television in its original form. All you need is a VinylVideo® record, a TV, a record player, and your VinylVideo® Pre-Amplifier.
VinylVideo® is an analog format that doesn't use digital compression at all. As on traditional analog television, VinylVideo breaks up every picture into a picture lines. The video is stored as a stereo signal - and not as the usual video signal. That's why you need a "translator" between the turntable and the TV: the Supersense VinylVideo® pre-amplifier.
Like any high-quality phono pre-amplifier, it amplifies the weak signal from the pickup to make it usable for normal line inputs on a stereo. But it is able to decode even further, namely the VinylVideo® signals, an audio/video output (analog or HDMI) to a TV set. Both moving magnet and moving coil systems can be used. VinylVideo® uses standard stereo records, record players and pickup needles, not modified in any way. A normal video signal (that can be understood by your TV set) of course contains far too much information for any audio media to handle, so a completely new and special analog video signal format had to be developed, taking into account the particular physical conditions prevalent in the phonographic process.
Although as much information as possible is squeezed into the groove, VinylVideo® images are only black and white, have less resolution than the average nowadays, and are accompanied by a low-fi mono sound track. Because of this, we can say that watching a VinylVideo® movie creates a quite special aesthetic experience.
