 Thomas Alva Edison

From 1877 to 1891, Thomas Alva Edison invents an entire series of media devices, among which are the phonograph, which allows sounds to be recorded and played back for the first time, and based upon this the cinetoscope for playing images, as well as the film camera he named the cinematograph. In addition, during this period he develops concepts for synchronizing images and sound.
