Abstract : A tape search system is described for automatically retrieving a particular segment on a video tape in which the segments to be retrieved are indicated at the time of recording by cuing the audio track and causing a parallel dump in the up-down counter which counts the number of recording seconds. The information of each dump is placed in a different memory register. Each cue number corresponds to the memory location of desired information that can be retrieved by selecting the appropriate cue number(s).
