Recorder stores TV stills (Jan, 1964)
I’m a big fan of any media you have to peel.
Recorder stores TV stills
This German recorder makes stills of moving TV images.
Video pulses are fed through a recording head to a magnetic-foil disk (background above) spun at 3,000 r.p.m. Scanning speed is 2,000 inches a second. A pushbutton starts the cycle for an instantaneous single picture.
A playback feeds the stills to another TV set. Up to 10 can be recorded on one foil, which can be peeled off for filing.
