Re: [Avid-L2] Re: Way back machine... quiz for the 'early adopters' over 50...

> That was U-matic.

The 5800's where U-Matic. The Sony Industrial Betamax decks I learned on where I think SLO-340's. They where Betamax format recording at the one hour speed and had flying erase heads for video insert editing and two channel audio. They where controlled by the RM-440.

John I cut news pkg's with BVU-200's and V0-2800's. That's when I learned what "sweating bullets" meant. I also carried a BVU-100 and 150 when shooting back in 1981. I also had the honor two shoot with a Ike79 tied to a "portable" Ampex 1" machine. My first introduction to portable video was in 1976 with a Sony B&W camera and portable 1/2inch open reel recorder. Total running time on full batts 10min. The camera and deck didn't have the color modules for color recording.

You know when I look back on all this it really was/is fun watching and taking a part in the evolution of our industry.
