Production of media is the beginning of our workflow chain. Most often, compelling content is produced through a collaboration of talented individuals and technological tools. Capturing images began when scientists discovered the light sensitive properties of certain chemicals and began to experiment with substrates and supports, leading to the forerunner of the modern camera and the initial blossoming of tintypes during the mid-nineteenth century. The earliest video cameras based on the mechanical Nipkow disk were designed by John L. Baird and used in experimental broadcasts from 1918 to the 1930s. The earliest video cameras were mechanical flying-spot scanners which were in use in the 1920s and 1930s during the period of mechanical television. Improvements in tube technology led to the development of video camera tubes in the 1930s and the underlying technology changed to support television broadcasting. Advances in solid-state technology lead to Charge-Coupled Device (CCD) imagers which were introduced in the mid-1980s.
