Eine US-Ampex Preisliste aus 1964 - für Behöden und Militär

von Gert Redlich im Feb. 2019 - Von einem neuen Kontakt in Mainz ist uns eine US-Preisliste aus 1964 zur Verfügung gestellt worden. Dort sind nicht nur alle 1963er Ampex-Produkte aufgeführt, auch deren technische Daten und Besonderheiten und - ganz ganz wichtig - auch mal die US-Dollar-Preise aus dieser Zeit.

In 1964 hatte Ampex bereits so richtig viel Gegenwind bei den professionellen Audio-Bandmaschinen. Die ernsthaften direkten Wettbewerber waren Studer aus der Schweiz und Telefunken aus Deutschland. Die Firmen aus dem Ostblock (die Ostzone und Ungarn) bekamen im Westen keinen "Fuß in die Tür". Alleine bei den Video-Recordern für die weltweiten Fernsehsender und bei den Data-Bandspeichern, die sie für IBM gebaut hatten, waren sie fast noch alleine auf dem Weltmarkt. Bei den wissenschaftlichen Instrumenten-Recordern für tieffrequente Ereignisse wie Erdbeben und Erdöl mussten sie sich mit Schlumberger schlagen.

Bereits auf der ersten Seite steht es - nur für .....

Diese Liste ist also fürs US-Militär in den genannten Staaten, in denen die USA damals Militär-Stützpunkte unterhalten hatten. Alle Ampex Geräte standen auf der Comecon-Sperrliste für den Verkauf in Ostblockstaaten aller Färbungen einschießlich Jugoslawien.

AMPEX CORPORATION (eine Marketing Selbstdarstellung)

ein 8 Spurkopf aus einen Data-recoder

Ampex was founded in 1946 by Alexander M. Poniatoff, an electrical and mechanical engineer. Our name comes from the initials of our founder, plus the letters EX for excellence. Ampex has specialized in the technology of magnetic tape recording and has set many of the electronic and mechanical standards of that industry. Today Ampex is expanding into wider fields by applying the same standards of excellence to the new requirements of industry, education, commerce, medicine, defense and communications.

The most practical method for collecting, storing and reproducing widely varied forms of data is magnetic tape recording. Magnetic tape recording allows the recording of picture, sound, digital information or analog signals in their original electrical form. It allows the immediate reproduction of those signals at the same speed at which they happened ... or at faster or slower speeds. Thus data can be captured and controlled.

Ampex introduced the first high quality audio recorder for radio broadcasting in 1947. Soon after, the company pioneered magnetic recording for laboratory and airborne instrumentation uses. Then from Ampex came high fidelity recording and stereophonic sound for the home, multi-channel stereo for wide screen motion pictures and high-performance tape transports and electronics for digital computers.

Next came the invention of the Videotape* television recorder, the development of miniature recorders for spacecraft and advanced multi-megacycle recorders for specialized use in defense, medicine and industry. Latest has been the introduction of ferrite and lithium core memory devices for electronic computers. In the future are a great many more new products from Ampex.

  • Anmerkung :
    Das muß etwas gerade gerückt werden. Denn vieles ist arg aufgehübscht bzw. definitiv falsch dargestellt.
  • Ampex gab es bereits um oder vor 1944, als die kleine Spezial-Firma Antriebsmotoren für amerikanische Radar-Anlagen gebaut hatte. Diese ganz speziellen Militär- Entwicklungs- und Herstellungsverträge wurden sämtlich nach der Kapitulation Japans im Herbst 1945 von der US-Regierung ziemlich abrupt und gnadenlos gekündigt.
  • Ampex "habe" viele Standards gesetzt - ist auch deftig übertrieben, die wichtigsten Standards bezüglich der Magnetbandtechnik kamen aus Deutschland und Ampex bzw. der allererste Ampex-Auftraggeber Bing Crosby hatte sie (Geschwindigkeit und Breite des Bandes leicht abgewandelt) übernommen.
  • Ampex hat sicher in USA die erste Rundfunk- Bandmaschine gebaut und auch eingeführt, aber es war ein erkennbarer Ableger der deutschen AEG K4 Geräte, die von Jack Mullin herüber gebracht wurden.
  • Angeblich kamen von Ampex die ersten Hifi-Home-Recorder. Das stimmt auch nicht, die hatte Ampex erst dann seinen teuren professionellen Maschinen "nachgeschoben", als andere US-Hersteller an Ampex (in diesem Home- Marktsegment) vorbeigezogen waren.
  • Ampex hatte auch nicht den Videorecorder "erdacht" oder "erfunden", die Idee kam von dem Deutschen Dr. Fritz Schröter bereits in 1932, als der das Konzept in seinem Buch vorgestellt hatte. Der Deutsche Eduard Schüller hatte sogar ein Patent auf die Schrägspuraufzeichnung erhalten.
  • Ampex hatte auch nicht den ersten Videorecorder entwickelt. Da gab es mehrere Firmen in den USA, die außer der großen RCA daran gearbeitet hatten. Ampex hatte dagegen 1956 den ersten wirklich sauber funktionierenden professionellen Videorecorder den US-Fernseh-Medien vorgestellt.
  • Diese Historie ist also teilweise schon sehr weit hergeholt. Aber wir hatten ja auch erst 1964 und keiner kam auf die Idee, sich mit dem Weltmarktführer Ampex "anzulegen". (Ein Vergleich mit den gepflegten Legenden und Mythen um Walter Bruch ist durchaus angesagt.

VR-1100 VIDEOTAPE TELEVISION RECORDER / REPRODUCER

DESCRIPTION
The Ampex VR-1100 transistorized Videotape Television Recorder/Reproducer provides operating economies in all studio and mobile TV programming applications. The all solid-state design of the VR-1100 yields long-term performance and reliability requiring minimum routine maintenance. In addition, no special air-conditioning is required under normal operating conditions. It also offers compatibility and interchangeability with all standard broadcast recorders. An array of accessories are available to provide additional production flexibility at the lowest possible cost.

APPLICATIONS
The Ampex VR-1100 Videotape Television Recorder is practical for any Television application. Low initial cost, low operating cost, and low maintenance cost make the unit a high-return equipment investment for a station's initial VTR operation or the extension of existing facilities.
