3/4” U-Matic SP was introduced in 1971 and was one of the first videotapes that used a self contained cartridge or "cassette" instead
of open reels of videotape. The tape was 0.748" wide, so the format is often known as "three-quarter-inch" or simply "three-quarter" tape. Imagine Video has the Professional Sony BVU-950 VTR decks, specifically designed for 3/4” U-Matic SP. We can transfer a single tape or an entire library of tapes.
