Designed to provide reliable and high-quality professional miniDV recording, the new U.S.-market-only PQUS tape series utilizes an Advanced Metal Evaporation (AME) technology that provides a high signal output, consistent durability and optimal tape-to-head contact.
The AMQ-Series includes two mini advanced master tapes - AY-HDVM33AMQ (22/33/49 minutes) and AY-HDVM63AMQ (42/63/94 minutes) – and four standard advanced master tapes - AY-HDV96AMQ (64/96/144 minutes), AY-HDV124AMQ (82/124/186 minutes), AY-HDV186AMQ (124/186/279 minutes) and the AY-HDV276AMQ (184/276/414 minutes). The new PQUS mini DV tape series includes the 33-minute AY-DVM33PQUS, the 63-minute AY-DVM63PQUS and the 83-minute AY-DVM83PQUS miniDV cassettes.
Both AMQ and PQUS tapes are designed with a rugged ABS resin shell construction, which prevents warpage and cassette housing damage and provides impact-resistant durability. The anti-static cassette lid repels dust and contaminants that can cause dropouts.
AMQ cassettes are packaged in a rugged, side-locking hard case to increase tape protection and prevent against accidental opening. The case’s non-slip, ribbed finish and special grooves allow for safe stacking and carrying within the production facility.
Each PQUS cassette comes with a durable, 2-way opening case made from a soft resin that will not break if dropped. The 2-way lid construction enables users to easily extract the tape with one hand, even while recording.
