Default Philips EL3402 - Recording

Does anyone out there have a still working Philips EL3402? Playback only is needed

This is a 1/2" B/W reel to R2R video recorder from 1972.

Our Wedding was recorded (Sound and Video) on one of the very first production machines in the UK. If anyone can copy it to DVD, I'd be truly grateful. All expenses covered of course.

Don't want rain on your parade, just trying to be helpful but..

I thought the Philips EL series were 1 inch tapes ?

The Philips LDL series of that era were half inch

I think... maybe wrong?

LDL machines were the successors of EL machines. I don't know about the tape width,though.

Hi Edward.

The EL3402 is a 1" alpha-wrap machine. (The earlier EL3400 uses 1" tape but is omega-wrap with the shiny side on the outside of the tape.)

If yours is a 1/2" tape and definitely Philips-recorded then it could be from an LDL1000 / LDL1002 - but neither of these were really "portable". I'm not sure if there was ever a portable version using the same format.

Could the tape have been from one of those Sony "Rover" recorders? (I forget their model number but there were at least a couple of different versions.)

Thanks Edward.

Kind regards.

From Mike.

Sorry to all, my mistake entirely, yes it is a 1" machine.
