All DVCPRO tape models will record/playback in standard DVCPRO (25Mbps), DVCPRO50 (50Mbps), and DVCPROHD (100Mbps) applications; actual record/playback time is application dependent.

Note that 50Mb/s (DVCPRO50) recordings use twice as much tape as the 25Mb/s DVCPRO, and 100Mbps (DVCPROHD) recordings use four times as much tape.

Blue Lid & Red Lid DVCPRO large cassettes contain the same magnetic tape formulation as Yellow Lid large cassettes, but AJ-5P92L utilizes a thinner base film (4.5um vs. 6.5um).

The lid color is to help users of the different recording applications identify & separate them for editing and archival storage.

 DIFFERENCES BETWEEN DVCPRO, DVCAM, miniDV, AND DV
Mini DV, DV are a consumer format that a number of manufacturers agreed on to become the next consumer standard. It has been so good a format that many professionals, and semi-professionals have begun using it. The format uses ME tape. Standard lengths are 30, 60 and 80min for the miniDV and 120, 180 (and some 270min) for the DV. There are also two speeds in DV and miniDV, so a 80min mini can provide 120min of recording.(Low quality)

At the same time, Sony & Panasonic brought out their professional versions, named DVCAM and DVCPRO. Sony's professional DVCAM format, although similar to miniDV, runs 50% faster. So, its longest tape in the mini size is 40min. There is a 184min DVCAM tape, which will run 270 minutes in a DV machine! Recognition holes in the tape tell the machine what tape you have loaded. In addition the professional format of DVCPRO and DVCAM have locked audio.

Panasonic's DVCPRO runs at a faster speed than the Sony DVCAM, but its main difference is the use of MP tape as opposed to ME. Panasonic, inventors of miniDV and the ME tape, did not think the tape robust enough for professional use and chose to go with MP tape. The physical cassette size for DVCPRO is also larger than miniDV for the shorter lengths... a kind of a 'medium' size. Long lengths use the same size as DV. MiniDV can be used in a DVCPRO deck, but only with an adapter, and only for playback. (SB)
