MiniDV/HDV tape recording times

Solution

When recording in standard definition (SD mode) only, you can choose between SP (standard play) and LP (long play).

DV REC MODE

Maximum Recording Time (60 min. cassette)

HDV

60 min.

DV

SP

60 min.

LP

90 min.

HDV/DV recording in SP mode is recorded at a data rate of 25mbps (approx 3.5MB/s). This data rate equals approx. 13GB/hr.

Attention:

  • Depending on the tape and its usage condition, picture and sound recorded in LP mode may be distorted. We recommend using SP mode for important recordings.
  • If you record in SP and LP modes on the same tape, the playback picture may become distorted, and the time code may not be written correctly.
  • If you play back on this camcorder, a tape that was recorded in LP mode with another digital device or vice versa, the picture and sound may become distorted.
