Hi, and welcome to Grateful Dead Flash #13

Question: I have heard the Grateful Dead's vault contains a massive amount of tape, and in many formats. How much tape is there, and what sorts of formats?

Answer: The Grateful Dead have about 15,000 audio tapes, about 3,000 video tapes, and more than 250,000 feet of 16mm film. The audio formats include just about everything that has been around since the mid-1960s: 1/4" reel-to-reel, 1/2" reel-to-reel, 1" reel-to-reel (8 track tape, from which albums such as Two From The Vault and the Fillmore East 2/11/69 release were produced), 2" reel-to-reel (16 track and 24 track, from which most live and studio albums after 1969 were produced), DAT, CDs, cassettes, 48 track digital reel-to-reel tapes, ADAT, Beta PCM digital tapes, and a few other random formats of which the vault may have just one or two examples. As for video tapes, again, just about every format from the late 1960s: 1/2" open reel (from which some of the archival footage of the NRPS used on the Closing of Winterland DVD was found), 2" Quad video (from which the Grateful Dead's Closing of Winterland performance was used for the DVD), 1" video (Dead Ahead and So Far were produced from this format), U-Matic (most reference tapes from the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s), VHS, D-2 (a digital mastering tape from which View From The Vault Vol. 1 was drawn), Betamax, BetaCam SP and Digital BetaCam. As for the 16mm film, most of it is from the Winterland, October, 1974, concerts, but there are a few other interesting items, such as the film on which most of the Grateful Dead's music videos were shot ("Throwing Stones," "Foolish Heart," etc). For all of these formats, the Grateful Dead vault and studio has equipment on which virtually every format can be played back, with very few exceptions.
