TBC-2B is for use with the Ampex VPR-2B 1" type C broadcast video tape
This TBC is essentially
a later incarnation of the TBC-1. It contains exactly the same functionality
as its predecessor with (possibly) more video memory! I am not sure how
much. This information will be posted as soon as the service manual for
this beast arrives!
Nothing! I have all manuals for this device.
