Digital BETACAM

Overview

Engineered for superior Digital Betacam performance

The professional's choice for top-flight Digital Betacam system performance. Specially formulated ultra-fine metal magnetic particles ensure high output and a low error rate, while superior binder and backcoating materials provide the durability and reliability that broadcasters demand. Respected by Digital Betacam users around the world.

High Output and Low Error Rate

Ultra-fine metal magnetic particles that are approximately 20% smaller than those used in Fujifilm Betacam SP tapes are densely packed together to achieve +2dB higher output. Our superior calendering technology ensures a mirror-smooth surface for a high C/N ratio and low error rate during high-density digital recording.

Magnetic Particles

Superior Durability & Transport Stability

Fujifilm D321 videocassettes offer the durability and transport stability that ENG/EFP professionals demand. Superior binder material provides high durability and improved magnetic particle adhesion, while high-quality backcoating material ensures a low friction coefficient and stable tape transport - even during high-speed shuttle and other editing operations.

Superior Storage Characteristics

Metal magnetic particles are protected against oxidation by an ultra-thin, yet ultra-effective, protective layer. This ensures that superior magnetic characteristics and high output are retained even during long-term storage. What's more, exclusive Fujifilm production technology helps prevent tape shrinkage and the tracking errors that tape deformation can cause.

Rugged Hard Case Design

Innovative design features provides the protection you need for fieldwork and long-term storage. Protruding reel-hub rests and raised flanges protect videocassettes from vibrationandimpact, and a special tongue-and-groove case seal helps shut out dust.
