This is a single sided demo disc from Philips demonstrating early Laservision technology.

It shows what appears to be a European specification Philips VLP-600 / 700 player and explains how Laservision discs work, how the players work and describes the different possibilities that Laservision discs bring; for example, Movies, Education, and much more.

The program contains three chapters; Chapter one contains the programme with English audio on one channel, and Spanish on the other. Chapter two contains the same programme, but with Dutch audio on one channel, and French on the other. Chapter three contains a few short clips from sample programs.

There is no reference number on the disc label or mint markings on the disc itself. It is housed in a plain white sleeve, with a Philips logo on the label, along with "Not for Sale" and the disc title. Although there is no copyright date, I would expect it to have been produced around 1982-1983.
