Vitaphone was a sound film process used on features and nearly 2,000 short subjects produced by Warner Bros. Pictures and its sister studio First National from 1926 to 1930. Vitaphone was the last, but most successful, of the sound-on-disc processes. The soundtrack was not printed on the actual film, but was issued separately on 16-inch phonograph records. The discs would be played while the film was being projected. Many early talkies, such as The Jazz Singer (1927), used the Vitaphone process. The name "Vitaphone" derives from the Latin and Greek words, respectively, for "living" and "sound".
