 3/4” U-Matic SP was introduced in 1971 and was one of the first videotapes that used a self contained cartridge or "cassette" instead of open reels of videotape. The tape was 0.748" wide, so the format is often known as "three-quarter-inch" or simply "three-quarter" tape. Oxford Duplication Centre use Professional Sony BVU-850 VTR decks, specifically designed for 3/4” U-Matic SP. We can transfer a single tape or an entire library of tapes.
