In 2018 2961 records in the PSYNDEX database refer to German and English-language psychologically relevant audiovisual media. Most of these are videos (DVD or CD). There is also documentation of visual still image material (such as slide series, slides), records and 16mm films (archived film material back to 1932). Each year, 100 to 150 documents are added.

This means that the AV media references can be searched along with the existing literature documents (PSYNDEX Lit).
