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 has proven as a cost-effective alternative for motion picture production. Since its introduction to the broadcasting 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.
