A promotional film made by Scientific Time Sharing Corporation to promote its APL*PLUS Service, circa 1976.

This film (really more of a slide show with narration) was shown on a portable viewer -- a marketing rep would carry what looked like a small suitcase, which opened like a clamshell to reveal a screen.

Thanks to Kevin Weaver for having this converted to DVD.

Addendum 4/25/2012: Email from Catherine Lathwell:

Hi Rex,

Thanks for sharing the STSC video. And Kudos to Kevin for hanging on to the VHS tape for all these years.

No disrespect intended, but while Kevin did in fact drive the tape to the shop to be digitized, I asked him to do it and I paid the bill to have it done. And even this was a team effort, it was James Wheeler who alerted me to the existence of the tape and I allocated funds from a grant from the Toronto APL SIG to pay for it.

I respectfully request that you acknowledge the efforts of the others who made this viewing possible.

Thank you,
Catherine LAthwell
