The photo shows an Ampex VPR6, 1″ videotape machine, in a stack with a Panasonic D3 machine. The VPR6 dates from the 1980s, whilst D3 machines came in during the early 1990s, and were used in editing and for transmission tapes, rather than for recording on. I wonder if this set up was for transferring 1″ tapes to D3.
