The vids were curated by Kandy Fong in the late 2000s, possibly for a panel at Escapade. On the liner notes she comments:
"When I visited Mary, I returned home raving how good her Beta 1000 machines were. Before my husband John passed in 1990, he had arranged with our friend Chuck to find me 2 of them.... Not only was I able to vid, but I used them for making convention vid show masters. They changed my life. But the first vid I did with them was porn, and I showed it at the second Escapade"
