1 Inch Type C

Return to Video Formats

1 Inch Type COne-inch Type C tape is a professional reel-to-reel analog recording tape format introduced by Ampex and Sony in 1976. It replaced 2 inch tape in the professional video and broadcast television industries, due to the smaller size, comparative ease of operation, and higher video quality. The quality and reliability of 1-inch Type C made it a mainstay in television and video production for almost 20 years, before being supplanted by digital videocassette formats like Digital Betacam, DVCAM, and DVCPRO (We convert those as well).

Digitizing World has the equipment in house to play these tapes and digitize them to DVD, Blu-ray, or hard drives, in several formats.
