Digital Betacam (also known as DigiBeta, D-Beta, DBC or simply Digi) launched in 1993. It supersedes both Betacam and Betacam SP, while costing significantly less than the D1 format. Digital Betacam records a 3 to 1 DCT-compressed digital component video signal at 10-bit YUV 4:2:2 sampling in NTSC or PAL at a bitrate of 90 Mbit/s plus four channels of uncompressed 48 kHz digital audio. It is a popular digital video cassette format for broadcast television use.
