DVCPRO tape incorporates newly developed ultrafine,
high-energy metal magnetic particles that are smaller than the
particles in conventional tape. These particles not only make a
thinner magnetic layer possible, they also boast superb magnetic
characteristics thanks to Panasonic's original "slanted deposition"
technology, which embeds the particles directly into the tape in an
extremely dense formation. The result is magnetic energy output
that's over 200 percent higher and C/N characteristics that are 8
dB higher than with conventional tape.
This high-performance tape supports DVCPRO's high-density digital
recording, which delivers exceptional picture and sound
The surface of DVCPRO tape features Panasonic's ultra-flat base
film and advanced calendering techniques, which eliminate space
loss and micro-dropouts. Its structure also prevents the permeation
of oxide substances. A lubricant is applied to the tape surface,
helping ensure trouble-free newsgathering even in bitter cold and
other extreme conditions.
These features give DVCPRO tape an extremely smooth surface,
outstanding durability, long shelf life, and stable tape
transportability. This ultra-thin tape is also excellent for
