Model Details

( New! Ask for the Optional Upgrade Option Now Available for Recycling Sony (tm) HDCAM SR Tapes)

Millions of videotapes are being cleaned, evaluated and recycled on RTI TapeChek equipment by professionals like you. Why? Because there are times when it is simply a waste of money to use new tape. In fact, if you are discarding just 2 or 3 Betacam tapes per week, you may be throwing away the cost of this TapeChek machine. Payback from Betacam SP and Digital Betacam tapes is even faster.

The TapeChek Pro Line 4100 is designed to meet the needs of broadcasters and other professional Betacam users. Because the Pro Line 4100 will accommodate large sizes, all cassesttes for EFP, ENG, LMS and production VTRs can be recycled with one unit.

Recycles. Tape cleaning module utilizes three vacuum-assisted wiping tissues that effectively remove loose oxide and dirt from the tape surface before and after polishing. Precision dual sapphire burnishing system polishes the recording surface, eliminates "snowplow" debris, and improves head-to-tape contact in your recorders. Temporary dropouts are virtually eliminated.

Erases. Optional erase module provides complete full width erasure of recorded signal from Betacam oxide, Betacam SP, SX and Digital Betacam tapes when selected. Erases better than most bulk degaussers. Cleans and evaluates, too!

Finds Tape Damage.
The revolutionary new LaserSCAN detector inspects the tape for physical defects and damage with virtually 100% coverage from edge to edge. RTI has used computer chip technology to produce an eight-cell photo receiver with virtually no gaps between photo sensors…and that means virtually no gaps in defect detection!

This non-contact optical inspection system detects physical damage in videotape that could cause major disruptions of the picture and/or sound quality because, when physical damage occurs, it causes the tape to lose contact with the heads of the VCR…usually resulting in a dramatic loss in picture or sound.

The solid-state visible laser in the LaserSCAN has many advantages. It has a long life and it runs much cooler than light bulbs. RTI’s special circuitry continually monitors the laser light output to guarantee consistent defect detection. Plus, the laser is a pinpoint light source…necessary to really pinpoint tape damage.

When tape defects occur, the light path from the laser to the photo sensors is disturbed and a defect is counted in either the upper edge channel, the middle (video) channel or the lower edge channel on the display.

Now available: HDCAM SR Option. A special erase function has been developed for high coercivity HDCAM SR tapes . The TapeChek 4100DLS tape transport system has been refined to accept the tapes in both large and small sizes.
