Panasonic AY-DV96AMQ 96 MINUTES (AY-DV96AMQ) Product Details
The precision-engineered cassette shell is molded of ABS Resin, which prevents warpage and provides tough impact resistance and durability. The anti-static cassette lid treatment repels dust, debris, and contaminants, minimizing dropouts. The sliding lock mechanism prevents against accidental erasure of recordings.Positioning a seed layer on the surface of the base film made it possible to dramatically raise recording density by minimizing cobalt magnetic column length. As a result, the output level rose a full 1 dB higher than that of conventional DV tape. Higher output and less dropout also synergistically reduced the error rate. Ideal for HD image recording, this tape achieves the high level of image quality that professionals require.Professional recording applications require a much more durable and reliable tape. In order to ensure the tape's performance under these more challenging usage conditions, a much thicker professional DLC film is employed to provide significantly added strength. A proprietary surface treatment has been applied to enable a uniform coating of the lubricant. This results in highly stable recording and playback, even with repeated fast-forwarding, rewinding, playback and professional editing.Using a proprietary lubricant processing technology, Panasonic succeeded in optimally blending lubricants that have different characteristics. This results in minimizing head clogging, while suppressing increases in the friction ratio (increasing head life). It also improves the durability of still-frame playback, and achieves a more stable tape transport. The end result is greater head life, and higher reliability in any environment for high-speed shuttling, professional editing, still-frame, and archival stability.
