Equipment Details

SAMMAclean raises the success rate of tape migration throughput by gently and effectively cleaning videotapes to reduce the defects due to dirt, and to identify other defects prior to tape migration. Mechanical issues such as poor packing and abnormal tension are collected and meta-data is generated for later reference. SAMMAclean runs at 1/10th VTR tension. Graphical reports are created with statistical analysis.

Key Product Features:
• True archival-quality videotape cleaning system
• Delicate and thorough cleaning of master tapes at
1/10th the typical VTR playback tension
• Software application graphically reports overall tape
quality, cleanliness and many other key metadata statistics
• Collected metadata is saved to an open XML format
for later reference
• Includes a programmable automatic mode for standalone, one button operation
• Available for U-matic, Betacam and VHS cassette

SAMMA Clean™ gently and effectively cleans videotapes to reduce
the number of defects due to dirt deposits, and to identify physical
defects in the tape prior to migration. The system automatically remedies many common factors that can negatively affect migration quality during its thorough cleaning pass including particulate deposits, tape tension issues and more. SAMMA Clean also helps to gently preidentify mechanical issues that may result in physical tape damage caused by the VTR during the migration process such as poor tape packing and abnormal tension due to cassette age, damage or wear.
In a single gentle cleaning cycle, SAMMA Clean cleans the tape with a non-abrasive cleaning tissue on both the front and back of the tape.
Push-button controls are located on the control panel on the front
of the unit, or it can be used in tandem with our advanced application software to expose even more functionality including cleanliness data, reflectivity, tensioning and more.
SAMMA Clean software can run on any Windows® XP or newer computer or directly on SAMMA Solo. When used with SAMMA Solo, the
cleaner metadata can automatically be saved in the SAMMA database
for each individual tape. Customizable quality factor thresholds can
be set to allow “pass-fail” criteria for each tape following the cleaning operation. The SAMMA Clean application directly controls the operation of the cleaner while providing real-time graphical indications of the cleaning parameters and other key metadata. The SAMMA Clean software features a fully internationalized user interface that can be customized for any local language.
Three SAMMA Clean models are available for the following formats:
U-matic (large and small cassette), Betacam (large and small cassette) and VHS (standard-size cassette).
