21 June 2016

8mm Film was developed by Eastman Kodak and released in 1932. 

It became the most popular and common form for home movies mainly due to it being cheaper than the 16mm format.

8mm Film & movie projectors were popular through to the early 80’s finally being replaced by VHS video and then digital formats. 

Kodak stopped making 8mm Video tape in the early 1990’s 

While Video projectors were used in the entertainment industry from their conception, it was only with the introduction of the VHS & Beta video formats that video media started to be used regularly in the business events industry.
