HDCAM SR tape shortage

Sony have stopped the manufacture of HD broadcast video cassettes due to the recent tsunami in Japan.

This has led to a worldwide shortage of HDCAM SR tapes, which are produced at Sony’s Sendai Technology Center – the factory is expected to be closed for months to come due to damage caused by the tsunami.

Orange Coconut currently have a limited stock of recycled HDCAM SR tape and only a few new tapes.

The Orange Coconut low carbon videotape recycling service allows customers’ own HDCAM SR tapes to be evaluated for re-use.

During this period of HDCAM SR tape shortage, Orange Coconut will be donating a percentage of the cost of each HD tape sent in for evaluation to the Japan Tsunami Appeal; please consider donating to this fund administered by the Red Cross.
