The HDCAM Digital Cassette incorporates Sony's advanced metal tape technology for use in the world's first HDCAM format camcorder. The development of a high performance metal tape enables high density recording with a recording wavelength of 0.49um achieving a digital recording length of up to 40 minutes for the small-size cassette, and 124 minutes for the large-size cassette.
- Ultrafine metal particles and new calendering technology realize high C/N of more than 45dB or more than enough range for digital recording.
- Outstanding archival characteristics by an aluminum silica protective layer with an anti-oxidation effect and low-shrinkage tape.
- Sony's original binder design achieves high reliability that withstands repeated playbacks and edits.
- Recording Time: 34 min in 60i / 42 min in 24P (varies with recorder frame rate selection)
