Philips Laservision VLP 720
The Philips Laservision VLP 720 was one of the first laserdisc players produced by Philips and was introduced in the early 1980s.
It used a laser optical system to read images and audio from the laserdisc, and could play both single-sided and double-layered laserdiscs.
Although popular with home users looking for better picture quality than videotape, laserdisc technology was eventually overtaken by more advanced technologies such as DVDs and Blu-ray discs.
Nevertheless, the VLP 720 is still considered an important milestone in the history of home video playback and some collectors are still searching for working examples.
