A strengthened binder gives metal tape greater durability under the stress of repeated use---important for cart machines and repeated editing.
Alumina-silica metal particle coating keeps retentivity and coercivity high after years of storage.

    Sony BCT-30MA reviews

    BCT-30MA Betacam SP Cassette (Small) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality Cassette I recently purchased a used Betacam SP camcorder and needed a tape to make sure it recorded. Everything is working great and the picture is still very clean in spite of the camcorder being 20 years old. Very happy with my purchase of this tape! The build quality is sturdy and feels like it should stand up to repeated use. The price of these tapes is relatively high, so I plan to transfer my recordings to my PC and reuse the tape many times. Excellent picture and sound quality from this tape and my old but fully-functional camcorder.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from You can count on this one These tapes are used to be viewed on BronxNet's Channel 68. Since the shows that are copied onto these tapes are shown in re-runs several times a year, it is essential that they be durable.
