At the time, battery technology was less sophisticated than what we take for granted now, and many cameras were driven by clockwork mechanisms. These devices were displaced quite rapidly with the introduction of VHS homevideo systems in the late 1970s.

The run-length encoding technique eliminates much redundant data without losing quality. A lossless compressor such as this reduces the data to about 50% of the original size, depending on the image complexity. This is particularly good for cell-animated footage. The TIFF image format uses this technique and is sometimes called LZW compression after its inventors, Lempel, Ziv, and Welch. Use of LZW coding is subject to some royalty fees if you want to implement it, because the concepts embodied in it are patented.
