A newly developed, dry-type lubricant and a diamond-like carbon film with extra thickness boosts the tape’s durability during still image playback and extends VTR head life.
Panasonic’s Advanced Master Quality (AMQ) professional DV tape series is now available.
The AMQ series offers advancements in regard to dropouts, clogging and still image playback.
A robust dry-type lubricant and a durable diamond-like carbon (DLC) film with extra thickness dramatically boosts durability during still image playback and significantly extends VTR head life. These advanced production technologies allow the AMQ tape to stand up to the repeated rewinding, fast-forwarding and playback typical of professional editing.
The new series offers a new surface treatment process (Super Advanced Metal Evaporation or S-AME) for improved magnetic density and an increased output level of +1.2dB, resulting in a more precise and secure recording.
Improvements extend to the cassette housing, with a new gray color, dust-proof anti-static lid and durable ABS resin shell construction. An easy-write cassette label is already affixed to the cassette housing, so writing titles directly on the label is quick and easy. Both the large and small tape sizes use a two-way open soft vinyl case.
