The DVCAM Format for Professional Performance
The DSR-1500A employs the DVCAM format, the professional extension of the worldwide standard DV format. The DVCAM format uses 8-bit digital component recording with a 5:1 compression ratio and a sampling rate of 4:1:1 (for NTSC) / 4:2:0 (for PAL). The unique compression algorithm provides excellent picture quality and superb multi-generation performance. The DVCAM format has a 50% wider track pitch of 15m (compared with 10m for the DV format) which gives higher reliability for professional editing. It also offers superb digital audio performance, providing a wide dynamic range and excellent signal-to-noise ratio, comparable to CD quality.
