Hope your Tuesday/Wednesday is going well.
Trying to help someone posting to another list from an ad agency in
Bangkok, Thailand who is trying to find a way to transfer a Thai
television station's Quad and 1" Type C tapes for use in developing a
station retrospective going back 40 or more years.
David Crosthwait, Don Norwood, Grace McKay, Tony at TQ Video in the
UK have offered suggestions via the other list regarding the
gentleman's thought about obtaining and using (a) Quad deck(s) to do
The television station in question has a broken one. (No idea re:
Make, Model, what's broken.)
There are said to be 50-100 or so Quad tapes. Betacam SP and Digital
Betacam have been suggested as receiving media, also simultaneous
uncompressed capture to hard drive for Non Linear Editing, saving a
pass on the Quad tapes or a generation loss and time spent capturing
from the dubs.
Thailand is PAL, now. Don't know whether it used another signal
format ala the UK before PAL.
Anyone in that part of the world have some ideas... particularly
about Quad dubbing facilities in Southeast Asia, Hong Kong or
Austraila, New Zealand or Pacific Rim countries?
Or where working PAL Quad machines might be obtained?
