How to Tell[edit]

  • Most tapes duplicated by Agincourt Productions may have an abbreviation of the duplicator and/or the distributor engraved on the right side of the tape.
    • Tapes duplicated after 1990 use the AP logo in gold. A few tapes may have the AP logo in black inside a golden circle.
    • On tapes distributed by CBS/Fox Video and its subsidiaries, there may also be a month-year code engraved next to it (e.g. MAG2 11 84 = November 1984).
  • Tapes duplicated by Agincourt Productions prior to the 1990's may have a coloured sticker, usually white, on the bottom spine. These stickers always have the distributor's name on top and random numbers on the bottom.
  • In the 1990s, tapes distributed by this company will usually have printings above the record tab. Sometimes the font used will resemble the printings used by VTR Video, another Canadian duplicator. This is not always the case.
    • Some Barney tapes duplicated by this company had black printings next to the recording tab spot (e.g. B310-5).
  • Tapes duplicated by this company rarely ever have static at the end. Rather, there is usually black screen all the way up until the tape rewinds. This is the case even if there is over 10 or 20 minutes of leftover film at the end.
    • Only one known tape duplicated by this company had something at the end (Jenny Craig: Let’s Get Started). There was a 3 second silent white screen test pattern at the end, with black screen following for the rest of the tape.
