See the last Q&A on this page:
Warhol seems to be suggesting that the underground party on Track 61 was staged by Norelco in order
for Warhol and the Factory crowd to experiment with some sort of VTR. Was Norelco making a portable
VTR in 1965? What format? Black and white? Reel to reel or some sort of cassette? Interesting! I
always thought (admitedly, I am not a video historian), that the first "portable" VTRs were the 1/2"
reel-to-reel types made by the Japanese in the early 70's or very late 60's.
