Computer mediated laser videodisc art retrieval system : final report by Bert A Kempers( Book )

4 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If laser videodiscs are to become an important facet of computer-mediated education, cost-effective and time-effective methods of production must be found. Media Design Associates systematically investigated six ways to inexpensively transfer artwork to videodiscs. With each methodology, 204 pieces of varied artwork from the Biological Sciences Curriculum Study archives were transferred to a disc using various combinations of 35mm, and 16mm photography, and 1-inch videography. Analysis and evaluation of the resulting disc demonstrated that organizing the art was very important. Each of the six methodologies produced still frames with an acceptable range, but differences were discovered, and the best image quality and price and shortest time were accomplished using a state of the art video recorder capable of recording single video frames. Results indicate that quality still frames of artwork can be recorded on laser videodiscs at a reasonable cost for educational use. Cost effective pictures of real objects may now contribute to computer mediated educational experiences. A 24-item bibliography is included. (Author/LMM)
