Computer Image Corporation 1975 Demo Reel

This is a 16-minute video demo reel for the Computer Image Corporation of Denver, Colorado, circa 1975, titled “Sight & Sound ’75.” The demo tape featured logos and TV opening titles for CBS’ “The Mama Cass Show,” ABC’s “Wide World of Entertainment” and “Monday Night Football,” “Jack Paar Tonite,” WPLJ-FM, WABC-TV, HBO, Bell Telephone, Pontiac, and many other products of the era. Computer Image used an early imaging system called Scanimate, which created vector graphic images that were rendered and then rephotographed off monitors and combined with video switcher effects. While the results are crude compared to what is now done with CGI, the effects are an important historical record of the computer graphics industry of the early-to-mid 1970s.
