Frederick Remley is best known for his work in negotiations concerning standards for video tape recording. In June 1959, he joined the Video Tape Engineering Committee of the National Educational Television and Radio Center (NETRC). This committee had the duty of deciding how to spend a multimillion dollar grant from the Ford Foundation and eventually decided on the Ampex 2 inch videotape recorders. The Papers of Frederick M. Remley describe his work both on the Video Tape Engineering Committee of the National Educational Television and Radio Center and as part of the efforts to standardize videotape format internationally.
