The sponsorship of standards by the SMPTE and EBU in 1978 for the "Type C" format triggered a remarkable world-wide acceptance by professional television organizations of the one-inch helical scan VTR. During the very short period of 4 years the number of machines produced on the Type C format is comparable to that of 2-inch quadruplex. Some of the reasons for this rapid growth are: • Excellent quality, high reliability and ease of maintenance. • Easy operation, flexibility in editing applications and portability. • Drastic reduction in operating costs and in capital costs.
