HDCAM

What is HDCAM?
HDCAM tape is specifically designed to capture the shorter wavelengths of the HDCAM format. Originally, the HDCAM format was developed from Sony's groundbreaking Betacam technology, and retains the same ease of use. This powerful format meets the requirements of HDTV and ahs proven as a cost-effective alternative for motion picture production. Since its introduction to the brocasting world, HDCAM sets a new standard in high-density recording with ultra-fine magnetic particles 50% smaller than used in Digital Betacam yielding crisp HD images. Also, HDCAM is developed for multi-generation operations.

 

 

How are HDCAM tapes different from other tapes?
HDCAM tape is specifically designed to capture the shorter wavelengths of the HDCAM format.

 

 

What are the differences between different brands of HDCAM tape?
Sony's recorder and media groups exclusively co-developed the HDCAM format. This has allowed Sony to provide totally optimized recorder / media performance. Remember, tape care and handling along with proper recorder maintenance are critical factors in high quality recording, playback and archiving.

 

 

Can I use large and small HDCAM cassettes in all HDCAM recorders?
HDCAM camcorders only accept small shell cassettes (40 minute maximum record time in 60i mode, 50 minutes in 24P mode). HDCAM VTRs can take both large and small shell HDCAM cassettes.

 

 

What are the ideal storage/archival conditions for HDCAM tape?

 

·     Short-term Storage (10 years or less): 59F - 73F (15C - 23C), humidity should be 30% - 40%

·     Long-term storage (More that 10 years): 54F - 59F (12C - 15C), humidity should be 30% +/- 5%.

·     As a rule, videocassettes should be stored in an upright position, in a protective album box, case or sleeve and  rewound.

 

 

Can I use the same HDCAM cassettes in both 24PsF and 60i recording mode?
Yes. Be aware that running time for HDCAM cassettes is dependent on which recording mode is used. See most popular record mode chart below: HDCAM CASSETTE RECORDING TIME (in minutes)

What is the archival life of HDCAM tape?
Based on Sony's 50+ years of experience manufacturing magnetic media, the estimated archival life of current metal particle tape formulations is 30 years providing proper care, maintenance, handling and storage guidelines mentioned above have been followed.
