    I can’t remember…will a Beta SP machine play back a Betacam tape? It’s been a few years.

    Yes, It should be backwards compatible. I have seen some older oxide tapes “tear” a bit in an SP machine, but it largely depends on the condition of the older tape as well as that of the playback machine.

    Not my monkeys. Not my circus.
