|LabGuy's World: 1974 GBC/ITC (Ikegami)
TVR-321 Fully Remote Control BW EIAJ VTR
Ikegami GBC/ITC TVR-321 Solenoid Operated EIAJ VTR (SOLD!)
Up to now, June 2005, I had no idea that Ikegami had made an EIAJ compatible
VTR. This beast is pretty heavy at 48 pounds (21.8 kilograms). Built extremely
solid. This poor old guy is very worn out. All the rubber is rotten. It
will take some effort to restore. But, it's not going to be impossible.
It seems I have had this machine mis-posted. Wrong model number. Here is the breakdown. The machine was originally manufactured by Ikegami in Japan. It was sold here in the united states under the GBC brand in partnership. Hence, the GBC/ITC badge on the machine. Regardless of which brand it was sold under, the model number is always TVR-321. TVR stands for Television Video Recorder. (I presume. Correct me if I am wrong.)
NEEDED: Operator's manual, service manual, and advertising literature for ANY of the Ikegami portable video tape recorders.
