Is this page really necessary? There is already a page for the VCR. Perhaps the pages should be combined.

On Japanese TV, they typically call any prerecorded video a VTR, so this page does seem relevant.
VTR is a video (tape) recorder which uses tape. VCR is a VTR which happens to use cassettes. The reel-to-reel VTR was invented and in common use for 15-20 years before VCRs were invented/common. To put the VTR information in VCR is probably misleading. Anyway, all VCRs are VTRs, but not vice versa. So technically, Japanese TV is correct (assuming they still use tape!)

Can you suggest which VTR model is popular for industrial use ?

I'm adding my thoughts as of a current read via Ask Search Engine, where this came up as a mirror site page. I would like to see more information about Betamax and LaserDisc's last released models before bowing out of production, not just USA of course, consumer end, but as Wiki and other sources show the earliest examples, I would take keen interest in the last ones to appear, where the most refinement often happens. VCR competes with Camcorder variety, and now with Hard Drive based camcorders, one could argue, using Standard definition, mind you, the quality versus tape is still something to take seriously, when one is shopping for home use, or even professional dubbing and archiving video and audio sources.
