This subject of video inspection is interesting! We have not purhcased
the RTI machine, mainly because we don't have the personnel to run it.
I've also noticed that the quality of tapes is dropping fast, or is
this just my imagination?
Last summer we withdrew hundreds of tapes from the early 1980's because they
were literally falling apart on the shelves- if you touched the tape
(which looked fine to the eye) it fell apart in your hands. Magnetic media
does not last forever. I wish more people would buy laser disc players!
