One inch VCR

Sony BVH-3100PS

This machine gets its own page on our web-site – it is good to highlight because they are now hard to find.

Our one inch recorder is about 30 years old. We keep it running in A1 condition.

We use it mainly to make digital copies, either onto tape or capture as a digital file. It is increasingly difficult to find one in reliable working order, that is one reason why ours’ is so popular.

The main-stay of broadcasters in the 1970’s to 1980’s.

It was normal to use two tracks for stereo. A third track is used for time code. Sometimes the 4th track was used for alternative audio.

These machines weigh 67 kg. They work a bit like a tape recorder.

You might think it looks a little primitive, but they produce a good quality picture and were generally reliable.
