Case Research Lab Collection
Theodore Case was an American inventor, working out of his laboratory at 203 Genesee Street, Auburn, NY. Case invented an infrared signaling system for the U.S. Army and Navy during WWI, and in the early 1920s he developed the first commercially successful synchronized sound-on-film system which effectively ended the silent film era.
