Art video came into being in 1965 after Nam June Paik in one autumn day used Sony Portpack in order to shoot the procession of Pope Paul through New York City. On that day June Paik, played the tape and in this way art video was born. Before the introduction of Sony Portpack, only moving image technology was common to customers but even that had many shortcomings it was like the moving image could not provide the facility of playback which a video tape technology could easily offer. Therefore art video became more appealing to common man.
