Default Re: 405 line videotape question

AFAIK, this physical tape format was unique to these machines. Other 1" machines (such as Ampex 5xxx/7xxx and IVC) will not play these tapes.

The line standard is less important - these machines lock to the field pulses and merely replay any line pulses as they were recorded.
