The lID video tape recorder (VTR) is an indispensable component in HDTV systems and its role has become more and more important. We have developed and produced small cassette HDTV VCRs called UNTil which are already used throughout a wide area. The first generation machine was composed of two pieces recorder unit and a signal processor unit. In the second generation machine which is described in this paper two pieces are united to form one unit thus performance and usability are much improved. The total cabinet size is reduced by approximately 39 compared to the previous model. 1.
