Here’s something we don’t talk about often: the history of video technology and how we’ve come to have not only one but several television screens in our homes today. Not only are most homes equipped with flat screen televisions, we also have handheld and pocket devices such as laptops, tablets and cell phones that are popular for mobile viewing and streaming.
It’s nice to take a step back from the rat race every now and then to do some introspection and reflection. How did we get here? Where is the future for video technology headed? Film projection began as early as the 1900s, although ‘movies’ at that time were nothing more than a few minutes of soundless black and white motion pictures. 50 years later, technology had improved to a point where most households could afford a black and white electronic television.
It feels as if plasma television screens have been around since forever but oddly enough, it wasn’t until the late 1990s that flat screens were released on the market. Within the time span of 20 years, many households had eradicated older, bulky models in favour of slim, sleek and sexy flat screens that offer fancy features for your viewing pleasure. 
Today, handheld devices make it easy to enjoy films and television on the go. Our homes boast state-of-the-art plasma screens and some are even compatible with virtual reality devices. Strangely enough, history might just repeat itself as we head towards a new trend of video walls for mass viewing, just like in the old days – only this time, it will be in the comfort of our own homes. Take a look at the informative infographic from Userful below to get a better idea of how video technology is coming back full circle.
