DVCPRO

Overview

A new generation of digital video excellence

Featuring a tape which is only 6.35mm wide, Fujifilm DVCPRO videocassettes maximize the performance advantages of component digital recording, and deliver outstanding image quality from the world's most compact broadcast-use video format. Based on Fujifilm's proprietary ATOMM-II technology*, they represent the dawn of a new age in digital video excellence.

Ultra-Fine High-Energy Metal Magnetic Particles Designed Specifically for DVCPRO Recording

Newly developed ultra-fine, high-energy metal magnetic particles offer significantly higher metal energy levels, with retentivity of 370mT and coercivity of 183KA/m. These superior performance characteristics allow high-density digital recording and playback with a tape that is only 6.35mm wide.

DVCPRO & Hi8 M221E Hysteresis Curves

Superior Transport Stability, Durability and Storage Characteristics

A high-molecular binder material improves magnetic layer durability, and lubricants in the upper and lower layers enable the tape to withstand a wide range of operating conditions. In addition, a special backcoating keeps the friction coefficient consistently low. As a result, head wear is minimal, and tape transport stability, durability, and long-term storage characteristics are excellent.

Easy-to-Handle, High-Precision, High-Rigidity Cassette Shells

Tightly sealed high-precision, high-rigidity cassette shells prevent tape deformation and damage, promote stable tape transport, and shut out dust and dirt to help ensure a low error rate. They also feature large clear windows that allow the amount of remaining tape to be confirmed at a glance, and colored lids and transparent hard cases that make it easy to differentiate DP121 and DP1001 cassettes from one other.

Note

  • DP121 videocassette can be used in both DVCPRO systems, and in DVCPRO50* systems.
    • * Recording time will be halved when used in DVCPRO50 systems.
  • DP1001 videocassette is only for use with DVCPRO-HD systems.
ATOMM-II technology:
ATOMM is an acronym for Advanced Super Thin Layer and High Output Metal Media technology (hereinafter referred to as ATOMM technology and ATOMM-II technology).
