This paper describes the design considerations and final performance specifications of the Cue-Matic Recorder*, a record/reproduce system which was developed to enable broadcasters to play short (3 minutes, 45 seconds), early generation program material directly on the air. The recording medium is a 3-mil-thick, circular magnetic sheet. The record/reproduce machine cues the sheet automatically and provides instant start and automatic stop.
