D-5

Overview

The ultimate in high-quality D5 digital video performance

Broadcasters and production professionals who work with uncompressed digital recording formats expect the highest levels of performance from their recording media. And with Fujifilm D5001 1/2-inch digital metal videocassettes, that's exactly what they get - uncompromising audio and video quality.

An Ideal Choice for Uncompressed Digital Recording

New Fujifilm D5001 videocassettes are designed to get the best out of today's 10-bit digital component recording systems. Thanks to newly developed ultra-fine, high-output metal magnetic particles and superior Fujifilm calendering technology, the surface of the tape is mirror-smooth. So head contact is excellent, with minimal noise and low error rates. The result is a high C/N ratio, particularly in the short wavelength range that is essential for high-density digital recording.

Superior Durability & Transport Stability

Fujifilm D5001 video tape uses a new high-adhesion binder material to assure outstanding reliability and minimal head clogging - even during extended still and high-speed shuttle operation. On long-playing 63M and 124L cassettes, durability is enhanced by an ultra-strong PEN (polyethylene naphthalate) base film that is exceptionally resistant to stretching and deformation. A new backcoating material contributes to stable tape transport by keeping the friction coefficient low under the most demanding operating conditions.

Excellent Long-Term Storage Characteristics

Ultra-fine metal magnetic particles are coated with a powerful antioxidant to ensure that magnetic performance and output remain high even after long-term storage. In addition, our exclusive production technologies and high-quality base materials prevent the tape shrinkage that can cause tracking errors.

High-Rigidity Precision Cassette Shells

High-rigidity cassette shells are precision-crafted to protect tape under adverse operating conditions. Tape transport remains stable because the tape is protected from deformation and damage, and the error rate remains low because dust and dirt cannot enter the shell. Cassettes are also equipped with two sliding plugs which can be used to individually protect the control and video signals against erasure.
