Kineto-phonograph, an apparatus combining the principles of the kinetograph, the vitascope, and the phonograph, invented by Thomas A. Edison. The kineto-phonograph is such that a man can sit in his own parlor and see reproduced on a screen the forms of the players in an opera produced on a distant stage, and, as he sees their movements, he will hear the sound of their voices.
