We came up short on our effort to bring the VR-1000B to the NAB show this year, but we think we have an excellent chance of doing it in 2017. More time to raise money and more opportunity to shave some off the cost. We did make a nice video tour of the machine for the 2016 NAB. Just click on the image below!

As many of you know, 2016 marks the sixtieth anniversary of Videotape. The Museum has a working Ampex model VR-1000B that we would like to bring to the NAB Convention in Las Vegas. We estimate it will cost $25,000 to bring the machine to the show.
Can you help out??

Please visit us at booth L2 for the 2015 National Association of Broadcasters Convention in Las Vegas.
L2 is in the lobby directly outside of the North Hall.
A big "Thank You" once again to the NAB for their generous donation of booth space!

I'm one of those "long in the tooth" quad guys (Switchkit, Mk I Editec on VR1000). Maybe I'll go back to NAB this year to see yours.
