The Panasonic AJ-P66M DVCPRO Video Cassette (Medium) is a 66-minute recording tape used primarily for newsgathering. The tape is 1/4 the overall size and 1/6 the weight of the standard 1/2" video cassette. It incorporates high-output metal magnetic particles which have made downsizing possible while delivering superb picture and sound quality. The tape has excellent tape transport stability and outstanding durability. A tough cassette shell and sealed structure assure durability, and prevent entry of dust or other particles into the cassette. The cassette also features a reel-lock mechanism that prevents tape sagging, and a slide-type erase-prevention mechanism to protect against mishaps.

The tape will work in the following formats: DVCPRO (25), DVCPRO50, DVCPROHD and DVCPROHD-EX.

DVCPRO 6.35mm-wide metal particle digital tape with 66 minutes of recording time is used for newsgathering.
It delivers significantly higher output and lower noise than conventional MP tape. The key is an ultra-fine metal magnetic particle that is less than half the size of previous metal particles, but has 70% more energy.
An ultra-flat base film and advanced calendering techniques give the tape an ultra-smooth magnetic layer surface that eliminates spacing loss and micro-dropouts. This results in both low error rates and a higher C/N ratio, even in the high-frequency band.
The tape has a binder that uses a high polymer, which helps to protect the magnetic layer and assures excellent durability---even with repeated usage and still playback.
A tough cassette shell and sealed structure assure durability and prevent entry of dust or other particles into the cassette. The cassette also features a reel-lock mechanism that prevents tape sagging and a slide-type erase-prevention mechanism to protect against mishaps.

                    Comments about Panasonic AJ-P66M DVCPRO Cassette (Medium):

                    As an owner of a Panasonic HDX 900, I am extremely satified with the DVC pro tape stock panasonic manufactures to go with it. This durable stock is the right size, creasless and shows no sign of any problems.
