Sanyo V-Cord Format VCR's:
||V-Cord Cassette: New
photo! Very compact, for it's time, these cassettes could hold
30 or 60 minutes of tape in the original version and 120 minutes in V-Cord
II format. Photo: Bruno Merlier.
||VTC-7100: New photo!
A V-Cord format portapack and camera. Black and white (of course). One
of the most compact 1/2" portapacks of it's time. Also featured the best
still frame capability because it had four heads! For this reason, they
were actually integrated into a cardio-sonogram machine made by Smith-Kline
back in the early eighties. Needless to say, they were superseded by Panasonic
semi-pro VHS decks. How do I know this? I had to quality-control dozens
of these VCR's for Smith-Kline which were purchased from Videomedia, where
I was working as the service department manager at that time! Photo: Bruno
||VTC-7300: New photo!
I have no other information than this photo. It appears to be a V-Cord
Deck. Color or B/W? You tell me! Photo: Bruno Merlier.
