While technology may have advanced into the digital age in most western countries, the BBC World Service still has a large number of local satellite 'studios' operating around the globe with somewhat antiquated facilities, all using cassette tapes for pre-recorded programmes.


This project involved the design of an ultra high-quality real-time cassette duplication plant, using 3-head tape decks with full off-tape fault/level monitoring, ensuring that each copy was as close to the original as possible.
