No subject in recent memory has had as much discussion or aroused as much interest as the much-ballyhooed arrival of the video cassette. If it has done nothing else, the fanfare and publicity have served as a stimulus for many people to consider their visual communications requirements, and to examine what applications they might have for the video cassette when it arrives. The result has been a beneficial one, in that many potential applications have been uncovered, and some long-dormant ones have been dusted off and re-examined.
