ITC Series 99B Audio Cartridge Machines
ITC's Series 99B Audio Tape Cartridge Machine is the most respected broadcast cartridge recorder/reproducer ever produced. Considered by many as the ultimate master broadcast studio recorder, its reputation for premium quality audio performance and reliability is reinforced daily in broadcast facilities around the world.
Only ITC's Series 99B features the patented ELSA system for cartridge preparation, ensuring consistently high recording quality. Prior to recording, the ELSA system can erase the cartridge, locate and properly position the tape splice and adjust the azimuth of the record head to provide optimum phase performance and frequency response.
Three cue tones are standard, as is high-speed re-cue. The record amplifier features large VU meters with LED peak indicators, input level controls and a unique meter/special function panel containing controls for meter function select, 1 kHz primary tone add/defeat, cue erase and an internal test tone generator. All functions are microprocessor-controlled. Signal integrity is assured by the use of top-quality connectors throughout.
Audio inputs and outputs are XLR-type, and a keyed, positive contact latching connector provides interface for the record head. A 50-pin locking connector is provided for remote control. Socketed ICs and gold-plated card edge connectors assure the integrity of electrical continuity.
ITC's Series 99B is ruggedly built. The deck plate is rigid one-half inch
precision machined and anodized aluminum. The patented micro-adjust head
module provides individual adjustment and locking for height, azimuth and
zenith. A heavy-duty, true positioning, air-damped solenoid assures
constant pressure, and the high quality crystal-referenced brushless DC
servo motor provides extremely accurate tape speed and low wow and flutter
