|Memories of VideoDisc - RCA Laboratories|
Mr. Halter has been on the VideoDisc project since the late 1960's. His principal contribution to the program has been the development of electromechanical cutting heads capable of operating at the frequencies in the video band. During the early 1970's, when RCA's major VideoDisc effort was directed at electron beam recording, he was essentially a one-man team on high-frequency cutterheads. His work led to the development of a recording method that was more reliable, easier to operate, and gave a better signal to noise ratio in finished discs than electron beam recording. Our present disc recording system is an outgrowth of his work. He has four patents, all used in the introductory system.
