Sony's DVCAM for HDV Tape was redesigned by their hardware and media engineers, to enhance recording media. This provides a highly durable DVCAM format videotape specifically designed for professional HDV recording.

Targeted specifically toward everyday HD video applications and ideal for dailies, stringer projects or postproduction, the DVCAM for HDV tape offers extremely low error and drop-out rates, high durability and superb image quality. Offering the same tolerance and dependability of DVCAM tape, the DVCAM for HDV tape is the reliable media option for HD tape-based productions - at the same price point as DVCAM, giving shooters an affordable, high quality option for everyday HDV recording, while continuing to satisfy the defacto standard of DVCAM recording.

High durability and high tolerance of DVCAM tape are expanded for professional HDV
The triple benefit of high output/low noise, low dropout and high durability, provided by Sony's Diamond Like Carbon (DLC) protective layer technology, accounts for the tape's low error rate, resulting in consistently high picture quality
Sony's DVCAM for HDV tape offers high reliability and low risk in pause mode -especially in adverse temperature environments

                  Comments about Sony PDV-184N/3 DVCAM for HDV Tape:

                  I can't say much more about Sony DVCAM tapes other than what most people already know: they haven't let me down yet and stand up to repeated uses. My favorite aspect of these tapes is that I can re-use them with the confidence that there will be no image or sound degredation. The PDV-184N is what I use for archiving my SD productions. Just a good quality dependable product.

                    These tapes are great for my use. I use these tapes with my SONY DSR-500WS camera. Mostly for weddings and event shoots. Always works. Wish it wasn't so costly, but part of doing business. You can record over them again and again.
