About WalVisions



The Archives at WalVisions  -  Early Projection Literature

The Archives  -  Home and Index

These archive pages replicate some of the original video projection literature from Advent, Kloss Video and AmPro. While large screen projection is relatively commonplace in home theater today, it was much more of a niche market in the 1970s through the 1990s.  Nevertheless, the giant screen had a similar impact to that of today - the then current state of the art television could be enhanced and expanded to life size, and the video experience was elevated from a "TV" level to a theater level.  We hope that by making these pages available we can allow the reader to take a short step back in time to feel some of the excitement and options that the early home theater enthusiasts enjoyed.

Please note that here at WalVisions we have expertise in many of the projectors listed in these archives, and in several cases have access to both parts and used projectors.  In some cases we would also be willing to act as a intermediary to bring together those who might want to find a home for an older projector with those who might want to make a home, or get spare parts, for such a projector.  For more information, contact Walter here.
