History (Extracts taken from Wikipedia):

VK is a helical scan analog recording videocassette format developed by Akai in the late 1970s, that is capable of recording and playing back black & white (and later color) video in either EIA and CCIR.

The format employed 1⁄2-inch-wide (13 mm) magnetic tape loaded into a small cassette, and had two video record heads on the scanner.

The units had an optional RF modulator to play back to a TV set as well as a detachable video monitor.

A VK video cassette could record up to 30 minutes of video.

The VK-30 looked like a betamax cassette.

Not many VK VTR systems were sold. The 30-minute record limit of the VK systems and the introduction of new systems on the market (VHS and Betamax) with longer record time limited VK sales."

The cassette fits to Akai VT400, Akai VT350 or Akai VT300 VTR´s.
