DVCAM Tape Format


DVCAM is Sony's professional DV format, recording at 530 video lines. It competes with Panasonic's DVCPro and JVC's MiniDV Format. The video quality of these 3 formats is the same, but DVCAM and DVCPro have different track pitches and extended timecode capabilities.

MiniDV has a narrower video track, so you are more likely to have problems playing the same tape on different machines. The wider tracks of DVCAM make tracking easier and provide for better tape handling.

The primary advantage of DVCAM is apparent when moving tapes from one deck to another, and when useing them in a linear editing environment. You will need a full sized DVCAM deck to play these tapes back.


Unsolicited Customer Testimonial:
You are far more professional than that crew down in San Diego, and while it has been 25 yrs since I rolled thru Casper on a camping trip... I always loved the town, but always was rushing towards the Tetons....
