Paper Abstract

Kinescope Recording, the process of photographing a video display with a special motion picture camera was for some years the only method of storing television information. Since its extensive use in the early days of TV broadcasting, the film produced by kinescope recording has usually been described as a "kinescope" even though that term properly refers only to the cathode ray tube from which the film was photographed. The "kinescope" also became associated with indifferent picture quality due to many limitations that existed in early video times. It is the purpose of this paper to review these past limitations and discuss recent developments, with particular thought to airborne applications, which make kinescope recording or VKR's a viable contender for top quality video recording.
