The Panasonic AY-DV33PQUS Mini DV Pro Cassette uses AME (Advanced Magnetic Evaporation) technology to provide high signal output and consistent durability and reliability in a recordable videocassette. It has a rugged ABS resin shell that prevents warp damage and cassette housing damage. An anti-static treated cassette lid repels dust, debris and contaminants, minimizing dropouts. The cassette case is molded from a resin that won't break, even if dropped. The 2-way lid construction lets you easily extract the tape with one hand, even while shooting. This tape has 33 minutes of recording time.
