|New Digital HD VTR Offers Up to 124 Minutes
of Recording Time
The AJ-HD1600 VTR employs the new DVCPRO HD-LP recording format, developed as an innovative solution to today's need
for longer recording times and lower costs in HD broadcasting and program production.
DVCPRO HD-LP uses double the recording density of ordinary DVCPRO to provide twice the recording time.
Using the new XL cassette, the AJ-HD1600 provides up to 124 minutes of recording or playback.
The new VTR meets a host of program production and on-air transmission needs, while reducing both tape costs and archiving space — advantages that mean greater cost-performance and operating ease. The AJ-HD1600 offers full upward compatibility, providing playback of all DVCPRO and consumer DV tapes. The AJ-HD1600 also features an HD/SD output format converter and introduces a new user-friendly design with features such as an LCD color monitor on the front panel.
|DVCPRO HD-LP — Longer Recording for
Cost-efficient HD Programming
DVCPRO HD-LP has twice the recording time of DVCPRO HD, fitting a full 92 minutes on an L cassette. Using the newly-developed XL cassette, recording and playback time extends to 124 minutes.
The increased recording time was achieved through new double-density recording technology that uses a 9-µm track width. To ensure editing compatibility — essential in broadcast use — Panasonic developed a number of technologies that maintain the same high reliability as other DVCPRO formats. These include editing-point guard tracks, a double-head playback system, new MIG (Metal in Gap) head, and a new error-correction circuit.
Plays Back DVCPRO50/DVCPRO P/DVCPRO/DV Cassette
The AJ-HD1600 plays back tapes in any DVCPRO family format, including DVCPRO HD, DVCPRO, DVCPRO50, and DVCPRO P. It also plays back consumer DV, Mini-DV*, and DVCAM tapes.
* The AJ-HD1600 cannot record on Mini-DV cassettes, even with the AJ-CS455P cassette adaptor.
The AJ-HD1600 cannot play back DV or Mini-DV cassettes recorded in LP mode, or long-time Mini-DV cassettes
(SP mode - 80 minutes, LP mode - 120 minutes).
