Digital Betacam also known as DigiBeta, D-Beta, DBC or Digi, was released in 1993. It supports longer record time of up to 124 minutes in L mode, compared to the 90 minutes available with Betacam SP. It recorded using the 100% uncompressed D1 format, with a resolution of 720 x 486 (NTSC). It also recorded audio at 48kHz, 20-bit. The DigiBeta format was widely adopted by broadcast studios, as the new SDI output (Serial Digital Interface) used to transfer data from the deck was relatively inexpensive to install, as it ran over one Coaxial cable.
