PART 7 – AUDIO-VISUAL (TAPES)

This Part lists audio-visual sources that require a VHS, ¾” Umatic or Beta tape player to review. Audio–only may be recorded on audiocassette or even reel to reel. Some of these products may also be digitised (playable on any DVD player/computer), as such products are increasingly being converted due to the obsolescence of the machines needed to play the source material.
