DESCRIBE HOW VIDEO AND AUDIO FREQUENCIES ARE USED IN THE OPERATION OF VIDEO TAPE
referred to as low band and is used by most monochrome recorders. The other is the
5.5mHz to 6.6mHz band, the high band used by recorders with color capability.
Figure 1-5 illustrates that slanted 3€6' angle of the recorded video information
and other dimensions.
NOTE: The azimuth method of recording eliminates guard
bands between scan lines for recording each track at a
