Shane Nugent Videotape Operations 1974-2004

Posted by ken On April - 8 - 2009

Shane Nugent worked in the TVW videotape area from 1974 to 2004, during which time Channel 7 made the transition to colour. Videotape equipment evolved considerably during this period from quadraplex two inch low-band black and white reel to reel, to two inch high-band colour reel to reel and cassette machines. The technology also improved from manual intensive operation to automatic loading with manual assist, to cassette facilities under automatic operation. The next evolutionary stage for reel to reel was the move to one inch helicon scan equipment that alleviated much of the complexity with having four heads passing over the tape at a 90 degree angle.
