The Panasonic AY-HDV276AMQ Advanced Master Quality Full-size DV Videocassette is a full-size DV tape that has 276 minutes of recording time in SP mode. The tape is built to withstand the repeated rewinding, fast forwarding and playback of professional editing. It has a +1.2dB higher output level provided by using S-AME (Super Advanced Metal Evaporation) technology.
The tape has 30% fewer dropouts than the competition. The dry-type lubricant and thick DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) film development boosts durability for high speed shuttling, still-frame and professional editing. A surface treatment process further reduces the chance of a head clog, while keeping output high and bit error rate low. The tape is supplied in a rugged hard plastic case with side locks to prevent accidental opening. Special grooves allow safe stacking and all surfaces have a non-slip ribbed pattern.
