1980s Sony VO-5800 U-Matic VCR

This is a Sony VO-5850 U-Matic VCR from the mid 80s. These U-Matics were very popular in the 80s and 90s in the broadcast and advertising field and also in the education and business department. Just like the VO-2630 this machine has many features which can be explained on this page. Apparently advertising departments were still using these machines right into the 2000s.  This machine is working great so far and I will be using it to transfer U-Matic tapes like with the VO-5800. Anyhow here's a few pictures of this machine.
