The DVCAM format allows up to 184 minutes of continuous recording on one tape with full color playback in the field. We have been cutting the Jacksonville TV Shopper and the newest Home Business Journal, national infomercial using DVCAM. The producers love it's field features and the quality. To preserve the DVCAM quality through editing we have been using the Fast DPR at 3:1 compression ratio for equal to betacam quality in the finished master.
