Description

Documentary movie with compilation of historically significant footage from prior conferences.

From tape label: "ACM SIGGRAPH'S HDTV DOCUMENTARY premiered at the Los Angeles Shrine Auditorium on August 8, 1999. "The Story of Computer Graphics" chronicles the history of the industry, its impact on society, and the excitement of future possibilities. As an official SIGGRAPH history project, great care was taken to produce a lasting document that will inform and inspire generations to come, including educating the general public about computer graphics. Segments in the film discuss display issues like vector vs. raster, color and frame buffers, and the early SAGE years."
