I was just wondering what the capacity of laser disc was and its specs, also was there ever a laser disc recorder? :slight_smile: thank you all for your helpful info

Laserdisc uses analog encoding for video, so there is no such thing as bitrate or mpeg type in its spec.
The sound tracks on a Laserdisc can be either analog or digital. The digital sound tracks could be uncompressed PCM, AC-3, or DTS.
