In February of 1975, CBS issued target specifications for the design of a videotape recorder with improved editing capabilities. The thrust of these specifications was for a recorder with vastly improved transport characteristics, coupled with a tape format which would permit the display of viewable pictures at a variety of speeds in both forward and reverse. The intended application was for off-line editing systems from which a work copy would be produced. The camera originals would later be conformed through automatic assembly in an on-line editing system.
