VCR

(VideoCassette Recorder) A videotape recording and playback machine that houses both supply and take-up reels of tape in a convenient removable package.

One inch tape cassettes were used in studios for professional mastering, and Sony's 3/4" U-matic tape cassettes were used in corporate training before VHS tapes became popular. See Betamax, VHS, VTR and VHS ripping.
