High quality pictures for your prestige productions
Digital Betacam was the first recording format from Sony to use data compression of the digital video signal. A very mild compression ratio was chosen to ensure that picture quality remains extremely high, especially for productions requiring complex multi-generation editing. Today, Digital Betacam equipment is in widespread use for productions where the best quality output is a mandatory requirement.
