TapeOnline was established by Steve Roche and Greg Griffith as a division of Electric Picture Company (EPC) in April 2000. At the time, EPC was well established as a local rental house of professional video equipment serving the Nashville, Middle Tennessee area. Rental customers often required tape stock along with their gear rentals. Recognizing a need to fill this market as well as the explosive growth of the internet, TapeOnline was created to serve professionals not only in Nashville but across the United States.

As growth continued, TapeOnline opened a warehouse in Addison, TX in 2003, in order to better serve customers West of the Mississippi River.

TapeOnline entered the duplication market in 2005 offering disc duplicators, printers and publishers for sale on their website.[2] By adding duplicators, memory cards, bulbs and disc media, TapeOnline adopted the motto, "More than Just Tape!" as a way to distinguish itself as a retailer that sells more than just video and data tape.

Key Services

Customer service is the foremost asset championed by the company[1] and is evidenced by high marks on Reseller Ratings[3] and their satisfactory record of membership with the Better Business Bureau.[4]

TapeOnline incorporates a tight integration of the Sony Rewarding Recording program into its system offering the ability to electronically track and report Sony Dollars earned for each customer.


In 2007, TapeOnline was awarded a GSA contract (#GS-02T-0064T).[5] Becoming GSA compliant allows GSA contractors to purchase directly through the TapeOnline website, GSA Advantage and DOD Emall. TapeOnline's GSA contract expires on March 11, 2012.

Also in 2007, TapeOnline began moderating a new forum on the Creative Cow website titled Media Formats | Media Capacities where users can ask questions and tap into TapeOnline's repository of recording media related information.
