PCM 1610/1630

From Chace Audio

A two-channel legacy digital audio recording system that was used for mastering, the PCM 1610/1630 would record PCM digital audio to an external 3/4"video tape machine. This format was the first standard for mastering audio CD's in the 1980s.

The storage media for the PCM 1610 / 1630 is cleverly camouflaged as a 3/4" videotape. This is no ordinary 3/4", however. It most likely contains mastered CD audio has no picture on it at all. So, if you find what appears to be an old 3/4" of a film mysteriously labeled "Master," you may want to think twice about throwing it away - it just may be the original CD master of the film score.
