DVCPRO

A variation of DV developed by Panasonic and introduced in 1995 for use in electronic news gathering (ENG) equipment.

DVCPRO, also known as DVCPRO25, is a variation of DV developed by Panasonic and introduced in 1995 for use in electronic newsgathering (ENG) equipment.

Unlike baseline DV, DVCPRO uses locked audio and 4:1:1 chroma subsampling for both 50 Hz and 60 Hz variants to decrease generation losses. Audio is available in 16-bit/48 kHz precision.

When recorded to tape, DVCPRO uses a wider track pitch - 18 μm vs. 10 μm of baseline DV, which reduces the chance of dropout errors during recording. Two extra longitudinal tracks provide support for audio cue and for timecode control. The tape is transported 80% faster compared to baseline DV, resulting in shorter recording time. Long Play mode is not available.
