Around 40 years ago, it was not as convenient to watch a movie as it is today. You could only watch a movie at the cinema, and it took five years to be released on TV. The video projectors available at the time still did not offer sound output so movie-goers had to be content with silent films.
Yelco projectors turned out to be a game-changer for movie buffs. There is no record of when the first Yelco’s were launched, but it is largely believed that they first came out around the 1950’s as an attempt to make projectors accessible to the general public. As projectors became increasingly common within homes, the company began to work on developing the ability to produce sound. This was finally achieved with the DS-600 MH that was launched in 1980, becoming one of the first sound-enabled projector models. The technology was so advanced for the time that many mail-order services and retailers began to promote the Yelco DS 600 as “the best projector” to watch the then-newly released Star Wars film.
