Question: What is the large machine displayed on the first floor of Green East (near the Current Periodicals)?
In September of 2007, a new media display was installed on the first floor of Green East adjacent to the Current Periodicals collections. The large device enclosed in plexiglass is a early two-inch VRX-1000 videotape recorder, the fourth such item ever produced. It was manufactured by the AMPEX corporation and purchased by CBS for use in their Television Broadcast Network in 1956. The artifacts of the AMPEX corporation are part of the Universities Special Collections.
