From the beginning, LIMA has had a viewing set for various obsolete video formats such as Betacam SP, Digital Betacam, Umatic, VHS and more.

Such a set is now also available for Laserdiscs, CD ROMs and Amigafloppies.

We are happy to share this and open our doors to artists and cultural institutions in order to investigate and view their artworks on these obsolete carriers!

Interested parties can reserve a time slot to use this service. Get in touch by sending an email to
