DVCPRO

User-added image

Featuring a tape which is only 6.35mm wide, Fuji DVCPRO DP121 videocassettes maximise the performance advantages of 5:1 compression ratio component digital recording and deliver outstanding image quality from the world’s most compact broadcast-use video format. Using our exclusive ATOMM-II technology, we have made possible an entirely new level of high-density digital recording, with the outstanding reliability and durability that today’s video professionals demand.

 

Ultra-fine high-energy metal magnetic particles designed specifically for DVCPRO recording

Newly developed ultra-fine, high-energy metal magnetic particles offer significantly higher metal energy levels, with retentivity of 370 mT (3700 Gauss) and coercivity of 183 kA/m (2300 Oe). These superior performance characteristics allow high-density digital recording and playback with a tape that is only 6.35mm wide.

Low error rates in the short-wavelength range

Our ultra-flat base film and advanced super-calendering technology team up to create an exceptionally flat, smooth magnetic layer that significantly reduces spacing loss. In addition, a new lubricant optimises tape transport along the tape path and over high-rpm video heads, reducing micro-dropouts and ensuring high output and low error rates in the short-wavelength range.

Exceptionally high output & C/N ratio

Fuji DP121 DVCPRO video tape features an ultra-thin 0.2 um magnetic layer - the thinnest ever used on broadcast-use metal tape. This reduces self-demagnetisation loss and ensures high output and a high C/N ratio at the short wavelengths that high-density recording requires. In addition, high-density packing of the high-coercivity ultra-fine metal magnetic particles ensures +5 dB higher output (at a recording wavelength of 0.5 um) than with M221E video tape.
