D-5 is a professional digital video format introduced by Panasonic in 1994. Like Sony's D-1 (8-bit), it is an uncompressed digital component system (10bit), but uses the same half-inch tapes as Panasonic's digital composite D-3 format. A 120 min D-3 tape will record 60 min in D-5/D-5 HD mode.
Digitizing World has D-5 decks in house to transfer an entire tape library or a single tape. Call us for bulk discount rates.
