Panasonic introduces high-performance DV tape line

May 4, 2005

by -- Panasonic Broadcast & Television Systems Company

Panasonic has introduced the Advanced Master Quality (AMQ) professional DV tape series offering a new level of durability and reliability in DV tape for professional users.

The AMQ Series offers advancements in eliminating drop-outs and clogging, and increasing durability in still image playback in comparison to previous Panasonic professional DV tape, and it excels over competitive brands.

A newly-developed robust lubricant and a durable diamond-like carbon (DLC) film with extra thickness dramatically boosts durability during still image playback. These advanced production technologies allow the AMQ tape to stand up to the repeated rewinding, fast-forwarding and playback typical of professional editing. The new series offers a new surface treatment process (Super Advanced Metal Evaporation or S-AME) for improved magnetic density and an increased output level of +1.2dB, resulting in a more precise and secure recording.

Improvements even extend to the cassette housing, with a new “Cool Gray” colour, Dust Proof Anti-Static lid and durable ABS resin shell construction--the same material used for high-quality data tape. An easy-write cassette label is already affixed to the cassette housing, so writing titles directly on the label is quick and easy. Both the large and small tape sizes use a two-way open soft vinyl case that is rugged yet easy to open.

The new AY-DVM33AMQ 33 min. Mini-DV, the AY-DVM48AMQ 48 min. Mini-DV, the AY-DVM63AMQ 63 min, the AY-DV96AMQ 96 min. Standard DV, the AY-DV124AMQ 124 min. Standard DV, the AY-DV186AMQ 186 min. standard DV and the AY-DV276AMQ 276 min. Standard DV models with be available in June. Pricing of the line-up is to be announced.
