Sony has introduced DVCAM tape for HDV that combines all of the advantages of DVCAM tape with the quality and realism of HD.
DVCAM tape for HDV offers the convenience of one familiar format for SD or HD shoots. It allows standard DV cameras to be fully compatible with the HDV format, so video professionals can shoot in SD or HD without the cost of moving to a completely new format.
DVCAM tape for HDV bridges the quality spectrum between DVCAM and Digital Master Tape. First-time HD users can take advantage of 720p HD recording at a video bit rate of 19Mb/s or 1080i HD recording at a video bit rate of 25Mb/s. Improved RF output using HPE IV magnetic layer technology provides a high error-rate margin for fewer dropouts and better picture stability.
