What is video?

Video technology was first used in mechanical television systems. So, when video was first invented, it was only used for live streaming technology and could not be recorded. Live broadcast on television was first recorded on a video recorder in 1951. This was done by recording the camera's electrical impulses in a magnetic field. Video recorders were first put on the market in 1956. Video recorders were quite expensive in the first years. However, its price has gradually decreased over the years. There was an important development that occurred long before the invention of video.

This important development is that the Lumiere Brothers invented the cinematograph. This development has gained importance in the years following the invention of video. As a result of the development of video and the transition to digital cinematography, video has become an important part of cinema.
