Development of a Low-Flutter Measurement Tape

Document Thumbnail

Flutter measurement tapes sold to the professional community may contain residual levels of time-base errors that are too high to permit accurate measurements. This study presents a technique for recording tapes with very low residual flutter. A recorder with atransport xervo system was used to make high-speed recordings for measurements as standard speeds. The recorder has low inherent flutter, exceeding the manufacturer's specifications. The high-speed technique reveals that a significant improvement in the recording of flutter measurement tapes is possible, especially when the method is compared to the common procedure of recording at the playback velocity.
