    Short list from



    All were designed for the Middle Eastern market. Only the SL-800ME is SuperBeta and no models have Beta Hi-Fi or s-video out as Beta wasn't highly popular outside of Japan and the U.S.

    There were several multisystem Beta VCR's but they are all composite output and most of them are mono:

    - Sony SL-T7 (1979)
    - Sony SL-T50ME (1983) a 3-system machine (PAL, NTSC, and MESECAM)
    - Sony SL-800ME (1988) a 8-system high-end SuperBeta with Pro 4-heads for perfect still frames, AutoVolt operation.
    - Sony SL-700ME (1988) a 7-system SuperBeta with AutoVolt operation (99-264 volts)
    - Sony SL-500MEMKII (1988) a 3-system SuperBeta and Semi AutoVolt system (110-127 or 220-240V)
    - Sony SL-T9
    - Sony SL-T30
    - Toshiba V-9680
