Ampex 25

MovieOn November 24th 1988 Don Kershaw made a VHS copy of an Ampex promo celebrating the 25th Anniversary of videotape in 1981. It was copied from the 525 master via the Snell & Wilcox converter (anyone remember that?). The original is 12'15" long, but I have cut it down to 8 minutes. Click the camera icon to play the video.

A still from "Doug Edwards and the News", the first programme transmitted from a videotape machine.
