Biographical / Historical

Rochester Institute of Technology has been providing audio-visual services for its faculty and students for educational purposes since the 1930’s. In the 1960’s and 1970’s, the department provided 16mm projectors, 35mm projectors, a lantern slide projector, opaque projectors, tape recorders, record players, filmstrip projectors, and projection screens.
