Betacam is a family of half-inch professional Videocassette products developed by in 1982. “Betacam” singly is often used to refer to a Betacam camcorder, a Betacam tape, a Betacam video recorder or the format itself.
All Betacam variants from (plain) analog Betacam to Betacam SP andDigital Betacam or DigiBeta (and additionally, HDCAM& HDCAM SR), use the same shape videocassettes, meaning vaults and other storage facilities do not have to be changed, when upgrading to a new format. The cassettes are available in two sizes: S and L. The Betacam camcorder can only load S tapes, while studeio sized Video tape recorder, like pictured above (VTR) designed for video editing can play both S and L tapes. The cassette shell and case for each Betacam cassette is colored differently depending on the format, allowing for easy visual identification. There is also a mechanical key, that allows a video tape recorder to identify which format has been inserted. The small cassettes use the same form factor as Betamax. (Wikipedia)
