Topic: Capacitance Electronic Disc


  
  SelectaVision - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
First prototypes of CED discs were multilayered, implementing a nickel substrate within the platter.
The disc itself is surrounded by the "spine", a plastic ring (actually squarish on the outside edge) with a thick, straight rimlike edge, which extends outside of and latches into the caddy, serving as a cover.
In order to flip a CED disc, the disc's sleeve would be inserted into the player to enclose and store the platter, and the sleeve would then be removed (with platter now inside), flipped over, and reinserted into the player (which would again extract the platter, now with the reverse side facing the stylus).

 Videodisc
The capacitance system was developed in the 1960s and was used in commercial broadcasting applications prior to the development of videotape.
Capacitance systems were able to play full bandwidth images by means of a stylus riding in the grooves of the videodisc that translated variations in electrical capacitance into video and audio signals.
Although the LD video disc's shiny acrylic surface resembles that of digital audio compact discs (CDs), the laser disc differs in that it may be encoded with both analog and digital data.

 RCA SelectaVision VideoDisc FAQ
CED represents the final chapter in grooved media that began with the Edison Cylinder in the 19th century.
Capacitance can be defined as the ability of two adjacent conductors to store electric charge, and in the CED system these adjacent conductors are the carbon-loaded disc and the thin titanium electrode deposited on the diamond stylus.
This is a disc used in the Thomson transmissive optical disc system, a contemporary of the RCA VideoDisc system targeted to a limited degree at the industrial marketplace in the early 1980's.

CED stands for Capacitance Electronic Disc and are also known as RCA Videodiscs and Selectavision discs.
CED is considered the pinnacle of needle-groove technology where you actually get an excellent color video picture with stereo sound, a/b audio tracks, frame by frame advance, pause with picture, and other features.
The VHS picture will be grainy from loss of magnetic pattern after 20 years, but a clean CED disc will show that same clear picture it did back in 1984.

It was first issued on VHS (#4508-20) and Betamax (#4508-30), next on laserdisc (#4508-80), and finally, RCA secured the rights to release it for their CED* (Capacitance Electronic Disc System) "Videodisc" format, (#RCA 01411/CM11E-V105172).
The latter format failed miserably due to poor quality discs, which always skipped, and the players which had a very high failure rate.
Very few copies of Let It Be were pressed on the CED format, making it the hardest to find of the four formats.
