This QUAD videotape machine recorded a TV program's picture and sound onto a two inch wide magnetic tape. The Quad VTR existed on it's own for nearly two decades, recording and playing back millions of hours of videotaped television programs both nationally and universally.
The thought of its demise moved me to start a business to salvage the remaining shreds of this bygone technology. Starting in the mid 1970s, 99.9% of previous recorded quad tapes had been transferred to some other analog or digital tape format for future viewing and storage.
The 1/10th of one percent remainder is where Antique Video comes into the picture to provide a way to resurrect those remaining precious televised historical magnetic documents from deteriorating forever in time capsules across the nation.
