Meet the future of high density component digital recording with Maxell's "Digital BETACAM" videocassettes. Maxell combined exclusive metal tape technology with an advanced cassette mechanism to create an extra low error rate "Digital BETACAM" videocassette ideal for all types of professional applications: ENG/EFP, editing, transmission and post-archival playback.
Thanks to Maxell's exclusive Multi-Orientation Technology and advanced dispersion systems, Maxell's high output Ceramic Armor Metal Particles reach their full energy potential, improving the tapes C/N ratio a full 2dB more than Maxell's popular BETACAM SP tape. In addition, the Particles' tough Ceramic Armor coating ensures that output stays high because it protects against energy-dissipating heat, oxidation and corrosion.
The combination of Ceramic Armor Metal Particles and Maxell's special high strength binder makes a major contribution to increasing the tapes rigidity -a factor that maximizes tape durability in demanding playback modes such as shuttle and still frame mode as well as raises compatibility with achieving and post-archival playback. Long-term reliability is raised even higher by the videocassettes dust-heat-and shock-resistant high electro-conductivity shell.
The backcoating used in Maxell's new "Digital BETACAM" tape has been carefully designed to optimize smooth tape travel. What's more, Maxell's patented SW (Smooth Winding) reel makes a major contribution to reducing tape degradation because it delivers unmatched packing of the tape, especially in the high speed shuttle modes.
