Definitions for "1 inch type C videotape"
Type C (designated Type C by SMPTE) is a professional open-reel videotape format co-developed and introduced by Ampex and Sony in 1976. It became the replacement in the professional video & television broadcast industries for the then incumbent Quadruplex (2 inch Quad for short) open-reel format, due to the smaller size & slightly higher video quality of 1 inch type C.
