A Universe of excitement and entertainment from VHD Programs, Inc

VHD represents a significant NEW achievement in world entertainment technology. No videodisc system is more responsive, more sophisticated or more versatile.
But that isn't enough.
No one settles down in front of the TV set to watch two hours of technology.
Breakthrough engineering has to be matched with breakthrough programming.
And VHD programming is an experience that can't be matched. A new generation of entertainment - beyond the limits of movies, cable or broadcast television.

WELCOME TO WIDER WORLDS OF ENTERTAINMENT, EXCITEMENT AND EXPLORATION.

Other videodisc systems offer a variety of programming.
But VHD offers more.
Explore the VHD catalog, and you'll quickly see that VHD offers a more complete, more balanced range of entertainment. And in a broader, more interesting choice of categories.
Movies, theater, concerts, ballet, musicals, rock, pop & jazz, science, health, sports, personal and professional instruction, programs for children, games - the list touches almost every art, activity and experience.
The fact is, with VHD you'll find far more emphasis on programs of special interest.
Up to 28% more emphasis on entertainment variety than you'll find with other videodisc systems.
In fact, even in our movies there's a remarkable selectivity you'll find nowhere else.

VHD MOVIES.
THE BEST, AND ONLY THE BEST.

In its own way, every film in the VHD library is a special achievement. These are pictures of special merit your customers will want to collect - and to enjoy again and again.
And whatever their taste or mood may be, there's a VHD movie to fill the bill.
Many are premiere films - major hits from the most important studios and producers.
There are powerful adventures like "Apocalypse Now."
There are comedies like "Animal House" and "Annie Hall."
There are smash musicals like "Grease."
There are Westerns like "The Long Riders."
There are ageless classics like "The Long Voyage Home" and "Stagecoach."
There are foreign masterpieces like "La Cage Aux Folles."
There are sci-fi thrillers. And horror chillers.
And remember this.
As selective as our film collection is today, today is just the beginning. The VHD movie catalog will be continuously and generously expanded with major new hits, special performances and important classics. But with only one kind of film. The best.

MUSIC TO YOUR EARS - AND EYES.

Yesterday your living room was a movie theater. Today, with VHD, it can be a concert stage.
The hottest rock groups.
The giants of jazz.
The legendary pop entertainers.
The great virtuosos from the world of classical music.
And the brightest stars of the Broadway stage.
You'll see them all as though you were actually there, as close to the performers as you can possibly be.
And it's not only what you see on VHD. It's what you hear.
With your stereo plugged into your VHD system, the concert sound floods the room in all of it's hi-fidelity color and brilliance.
Of course, there are differences between VHD and a live performance. You don't have to scramble for tickets. Or battle the crowds. Or worry about parking.
Instead, you can just sit back and enjoy it all in the comfort and security of your own home.

SEE IT FROM RINGSIDE, THE BOX SEATS, AND THE FIFTY YARD LINE.

The VHD catalog is a treasury of great sports highlights. And great sports instruction - taught by the pros. Football, boxing, golf, racquetball, tennis. It's all there for the VHD sports fan.
The sports courses and classics he wants to see. Whenever he wants to see them.

NEW CHALLENGES, NEW SKILLS, NEW DISCOVERYS.

Learn the secrets of photography from the experts.
Get back in shape - discover how to stop smoking. How to diet. And how to exercise.
Explore the world of fine wines.
Find out what breaks around the house. And how to fix it.
Learn how to decorate.
Check your personal financial growth.
See how much faster you can really read - and really enjoy.
With VHD programming, you can discover all of this. And much, much more.
In fact, special programs in the VHD catalog can help you understand and appreciate the most important subjects of all.
Your own needs.
Your own development.
Your own strengths. And resources.

SOMETHING FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY. WITH THE WHOLE FAMILY.

Cartoons for the kids. Sporting events for dad. Cooking classes for mom.
With all thats available in the VHD library for people to enjoy by themselves, there's still more for them to enjoy together.
In almost every category, you'll find material that's certain to capture the family's interest, excite the family's imagination, and inspire the family's understanding.
Which makes VHD more than something to own.
It's something to share.
