Polavision Cassettes ,  Polaroid Phototape Cassette Type 608

The Polavision process was a major commercial failure for Polaroid,

being launched in 1977 and discontinued in 1979.

The film is similar to, but of lower picture quality than Super 8mm cine film,

and also has been found to deteriorate far quicker.  

The cassettes could only be viewed with the special screen viewer.
