Several other formats come to mind. MII was a component format, VHS casette based system, as opposed to Betacam, which was…well, Betamax based. Less common, but possible. Getting really obscure, there was Quadcart, used to air commercials. based on 2″ Quad tape, but in a loop a-la 8 track audio tapes. Being described as a cassette, that seems to rule out 1″ or 2″ Quad, which would be open reels. And we though it was tough to keep track of modern formats…sheesh.
