Youtube Video RCA TR-4 "Television Tape Recorder"
Here's an interesting video I chanced upon whilst browsing on YouTube.
Would look quite nice in the alcove by the fireplace!
It’s amazing to think that video tape recorders started out that big, and eventually got condensed down to something that would fit in the palm of your hand! The smallest I’ve got is part of a Sony micro-mv camcorder, although that does record digitally encoded video, the smallest analog video recorder would probably be one of the Hi8 camcorders.
