The peeling back or lifting of the outer edge of a tape that has been applied in a curve.
The peeling back of lifting of the outer edge of a tape which has been applied in a curve.
Usually occurs on the outside one-sixteenth inch of the video tape. If the tape is sufficiently deformed it will not make proper tape contact with the playback heads. An upper curl (audio edge) crease may affect sound quality. A lower curl (control track) may result in poor picture quality.
