HDCAM systems are high-definition digital broadcasting systems that use 1/2 inch metal tape. They are expected to gain wide acceptance as the system of choice for next-generation HDTV broadcasting.

High C/N Ratio & Low Error Rate

Newly developed ultra-fine high-output metal magnetic particles and high-density particle packing ensure excellent magnetic characteristics. Because the particles are extremely small and uniform in size, high output and low noise can be achieved. As a result, high C/N characteristics are achieved at all wavelengths. Super calendering technology creates a super-smooth magnetic layer that ensures excellent head contact. This results in a high C/N ratio and low error rate even for short-wavelength digital recording.

Excellent Storage Characteristics for Stable Long-Term Storage of Image Archives

An extremely thin and uniform layer of anti-oxidant material is applied to the surface of each metal magnetic particle. This prevents magnetic performance from deteriorating during long-term storage and ensures that the C/N ratio remains high. Exclusive Fujifilm technologies are used to keep tape shrinkage to an absolute minimum during long-term storage. This prevents mistracking caused by track pattern dimension changes and ensures consistent playback performance.

Newly Developed Binder & Lubricant for Stable Tape Transport & High Durability

A newly developed binder with strong adhesion characteristics assures stable tape transport even during the repeated still and high-speed shuttle operations of editing. In addition, the binder and newly developed lubricant work together to help keep heads clean, ensuring high reliability with no increase in dropouts or error rate even when used under the extreme conditions of ENG/EFP fieldwork.

Highly Dust-Resistant Cassettes & Hard Cases

Cassette lids are constructed of anti-static resin to keep dust and dirt out and ensure that the dropout count and error rate do not rise. Hard cases feature dustproof construction that keeps the tape clean during storage. In addition, individual supports on the inside of the case secure the reels and cassette shell to provide added protection against impact and vibration.

Distinctive Colouring Eliminates Confusion with Betacam Cassettes

Distinctive two-tone colour scheme with an olive-coloured shell and orange lid allows cassettes to be instantly distinguished from Betacam, Betacam SP and Digital Betacam videocassettes. The same colour scheme is used for the hard cases to prevent cassettes from accidentally being stored in the wrong cases.
