            I used this to upres my SD project to HD
            for a film festival. This small cassette
            works on VTRs that take large cassettes as
            well.

            I used this to make a film festival submission copy of a a Final Cut Pro project that was DVCPRO HD 960x720 with a frame rate of 23.98. The output looked way better on a proper monitor playing off this HDCAM tape than it did on my MacBook screen. I like how rich and deep the blacks are, compared to other tape formats.

            If you want a safe and high quality way to back up your media in a secure non-digital manner, this is the way to go. Analog may be going the way of the dodo for most things, but as far as a tangible piece of storage is concerned you cannot ask for more. Highly recommended.
