U-matic Tape Format

U-atic Logo

3/4-inch U-Matic was an early standard in professional video tape. Although it is no longer being manufactured, the vast libraries of U-Matic material around the world ensured that this format experienced a very long, slow death. These days U-matic machines are all but extinct and count as collectors' items.
