LaserDisc Archive Page

As Laserdiscs and laserdisc players are now rapidly being displaced by DVD I've put together 'The Laserdisc Archive' containing an authoritative list of hardware from the major manufacturers.

The list of players will initially consist of recently available machines as details are easier to track down. But over the forthcoming months I hope to put together a list of older players from Japan/Asia, North America and Europe, covering not only consumer laserdisc players but industrial models. Other laserdisc developments are also listed: 

LaserActive and 

Muse High Definition LaserDisc.

If you have any specification details, pictures or scanned images of any laserdisc players or know of any interesting laserdisc sites on the web were I may obtain further information, please drop me an email by clicking the large rotating 'e'.

I would like to thank the following people for providing many of the pictures and details on the Archive site:

Hartmut Hackl
Michael Pollock
Peter Löf
Ralf Beckers
Sascha Grau
