CBM 8000 VIDEO CD
|FROM GAEYLNE GASSON , AUSTRALIA
I loved the commercials (most of which I'd never seen), and I had never heard the radio jingles before. The 8000 series was presented very well - I knew nothing about the series till seeing this, and was amazed by some of the peripherals.
I am really impressed with the amount of information and great humour that's in this video
I hope it gets shown at a show or Expo or several of them, as this ... well, I reckon I've just seen a 'classic'. I'd love to see more like this one.
A VCD is just a CD with a video on it, such as a home movie or a wedding. It's not the VCD that's important, it's the material on it that matters. Like a videotape. A demo of a videotape would be pretty boring, but a videotape with a Commodore story on it ... well, that's different. < g >
In the case of Ken's VCD, it's a video with 100% Commodore material.
It has TV and radio commercials about the Vic20 and C64, a few home
made 'Captain Commodore' comics, and then a pictoral display (with
audio explaining what you're seeing) of the Commodore 8000 business series
How would you show a VCD at an Expo? You'd need a TV and a DVD player that can handle VCDs. Plug them in, put chairs around, and there you go.
Cheers (and Applause!),
(who normally doesn't gush about stuff, but WOW, this was excellent!)

Pauline said she had "given up the will to live" by the time it got
to the CBM printers section, and went out of the room.
