The SL-T30ME was intended for the middle eastern market but many found there way in to the UK because this video made the ideal multi-standard Betamax machine.

The VCR could play and record in PAL, NTSC (4.43 only) and SECAM 1/2. It was a very slim unit. With illuminated functions switches it could have a very bright appearance! On the NTSC side, only speeds Beta II and III were available. The high speed Beta I mode was not included.

It came with a full multi-standard tuner enabling reception of both the VHF and UHF bands with all sound carriers. It also had an "auto volt" power supply to cater for different voltages.
