This portable, transistorized helical scan broadcast television tape recorder was designed for mobile and studio use. The unit operated at 3.75 ips and could record up to five hours of continuous program material on a single – 12 1/2” reel of standard 2” tape. The unit included the Ampex “Edicon” electronic editor, which allowed for both insert and assemble edits. The VR-660B was compatible with the VR-1500/660 helical scan recorders.
A new portable broadcast television tape recorder, said to be priced well below other such recorders of broadcast quality, has been introduced by Ampex. The unit weighs under 100 lbs. and is designed for mobile and studio use. Its price is $14,500 and is completely transistorized. The unit operates at 3.75 IPS and can record up to 5 hours of continuous program material on a single 12-1/2" reel of standard 2" wide broadcasting video tape.
