Hi, I've been following the video inspection messages very closely,
and, given that I'm from a public school with limited budget, I have
never heard of an RTI machine. Can someone please fill me in? Are
they large, like the old film cleaning machines, where do you purchase
them, and how much do they cost? Years ago I purchased an Ambico
VHS cleaner that is a tiny box, the size of a rewinder. I didn't
find it too effective, and haven't used it for years. Would it
be effective to drag it out and use it, rather than no cleaning
at all? I agree that videotapes have a very limited life, but
we have some old ones that teachers use year after year, and I
cannot replace them.
