The American Mutoscope and Biograph Company is founded in New Jersey by the KMCD Syndicate of William Kennedy Dickson, Henry Marvin, Herman Casler and Elias Koopman. Woodville Latham and his sons develop the Latham Loop, which utilizes loose loops of film on either side of the intermittent movement to prevent stress on the film. IT is debuted in the Eidoloscope, which is also the first widescreen format (1.85:1).
