Since I was a teenager, I’ve been fascinated with the original mechanical/electronic technology that enabled broadcast TV programs to be recorded and played back instantly on a magnetic tape. To this day, I still am still devoted to that old technology. 045 years later it’s still as interesting as it was back in it’s heyday.
In 1995, I decided to turn my hobby into a business. So I started Antique Video Transfer Service.
Antique Video Transfer Service was created out of a need to perpetuate the soon to disappear original TV broadcast video tape format, the "Quad" [short for quadruplex] Video Tape Recorder which went into production in 1958. We need a service that can provide playback in today’s electronic video world.
