Panasonic 23 Minute D-5 Videotape: AJ-D5C23S
This product is sold in boxes of 10) tapes. Price show is per tape. This is a special order item, and may take 1-2 weeks to ship.
D-5 digital videotapes from Panasonic feature high output, high speed, and high stability. In order to achieve those characteristics Panasonic tapes have a finer particle size, improved electromagnetic characteristics and enhanced durability. With those advances this tape has doubled the data bit rate of D3 and is perfect for HD recording at a 4:2:2 color saturation mode.
Panasonic uses Zetas Metal Alloy particles to maximize magnetic energy and increase stability over time. The particles in the 23S D-5 tape are mixed with inorganic powders that have been specially oriented and calendered to achieve extra high magnetic energy output. More particles per recorded wavelength is made possible by packing the ultra-fine particles at high density.
The enhanced electromagnetic characteristics have improved C/N ratio by +1dB compared to D3. The high output of a tape creates fewer errors within the tape. With the output and C/N ratio being high the tape yields a low error rate.
The binder system enhances the durability of the Panasonic D5 video tape. Because of the high speeds of the head cylinder revolution the tape needs flexibility and shock absorbing characteristics to keep the error rate low. A drop out occurs when the tape lifts away from the heads. A flexible binder will keep the tape in contact with the tape heads and reduce errors. Panasonic uses a combination of 2 binders, one hard and one soft. By crosslinking two binder types Panasonic can maintain strength at the optimal points. This they call the Zetas High Durability Binder System.
