Enhanced Durability for Still Images: A newly developed robust lubricant and a durable diamond-like carbon (DLC) film with extra thickness dramatically boost durability during still frame playback, which places considerable burden on the tape. This rugged durability stands up to the repeated rewinding, fastforwarding and playback of professional editing.
High Output Level: Panasonics advancements to its S-AME (Super Advanced Metal Evaporation) technology have yielded an improved magnetic density. Compared to other brands, the output level has been increased by +1.2dB, resulting in a more precise and secure recording.
Superb Total Performance: This durable tape offers particularly excellent characteristics in regard to dropout, clogging, and still image playback, in comparison with previous Panasonic tapes. It also excels over competitive brand tapes in terms of dropout, signal output, and error rate.
Low Head Wear: With our original dry type lubricant, video head wear is much less compared to other tape brands (-4m after 500H). Also it prevents head clogs and significantly extends head life.
High-Precision Cassette Design: The same ABS resin that gives data tape cassettes their superb reliability, high-precision molding, tough impact resistance and durability is used in AMQ Series cassettes. An anti-static treatment for the cassette lid repels dust contaminants and minimizes dropouts. This advanced cassette gives valuable images the extended protection they need.
2-Way Opening Soft Case: A soft material that wont break if dropped is used for the cassette case. The 2-way lid construction lets you easily extract the tape with one hand, even while shooting.
