Panasonic introduces DV professional tapes

Panasonic Broadcast announced two new advancements in its line of professional digital media — the new AMQ-Series Advanced Master Quality tape for professional master-quality HDV, DV and DVCAM recording and the new PQUS-Series Professional Quality Pro DV tape for professional miniDV recording.

Developed for the U.S. market only, Panasonic said the AMQ tape series provides unprecedented performance for DVCAM (15 µm track width), HDV and DV SP (10µm track width), and DV LP (6.67µm track width) recording. AMQ tapes feature Panasonic’s next-generation Super Advanced Metal Evaporation (S-AME) technology with four times the magnetic density of the previous tape generation, providing +1.2dB higher output than the competition.

Advancements in Panasonic’s proprietary Dry-Type lubricant and Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) film development dramatically boost the tape’s durability for high speed shuttling, still-frame and professional editing. A surface treatment process extends VTR head life and reduces head clogging and dropouts.

Designed to provide reliable and high-quality professional miniDV recording, the new U.S.-market-only PQUS tape series uses an Advanced Metal Evaporation (AME) technology that provides a high signal output, consistent durability and optimal tape-to-head contact.
