Ampex VR-1200B Restoration

Message Board - Ampex VR-1200B Video Tape Machine - General Discussion

The Ampex VR-1200B provides the top color/monochrome performance available today - exceeded only by the VR-2000 Series. It offers complete television production capability, including multiple generation copies (four or more generations) and electronic editing in color or monochrome.

Fully solid-state design contributes greatly to the VR-1200B's modest size, increased reliability and low power consumption. It incorporates many of the same features as the VR-2000 Series VRT's: switchable high/low-band, color monochrome operation; zoned operating controls; meaningful tally lights; new Video Head Optimizer (optional); new non-scratch video erase head; Mark Ten rotary transformer video head; complete built-in picture, audio and waveform monitoring.
