Sony had hoped the U-matic cassette tape, invented in the late 60s, would capture the home video market by offering an easy to use cartridge based delivery/recording system for analog video. The format, which would act as a sort of design prototype for the formats to follow, features a 3/4” magnetic tape cased inside of a large plastic cartridge. One of the unique aspects of the U-Matic’s design is that the two reels, which spool the film move in opposite directions.
Unfortunately the high price points had deterred the average consumer and the U-Matic had failed to make an impact on the home-video market. However, the format was adopted early on by News outlets and Institutional organizations.
The U-Matic would be superseded by Sony’s Beta series of products, which would go on to become industry broadcast standard.
