can record and playback HDTV video uncompressed. The only D6 VTR
VTR
product is the Philips, now Thomson's Grass Valley's Media Recorder, model DCR 6024, also called the D6 Voodoo VTR. The VTR
VTR
was a joint project between Philips

in Japan. The tape deck module was designed and made by Philips
Philips
in Weiterstadt, Germany
Germany
(formerly Bosch Fernseh), and the digital processor module designed and made by Toshiba. Since there is no data compression, after 20 tape copies of multi generations there is no noticeable loss of quality. As a very high-end, costly system about 70 were sold to high-end post houses from about 2000 to 2005. The VTR
VTR
had a data record option. The data module could record and play back 2k DPX files at 6 frames per second over a HIPPI
HIPPI
connection. The VTR
VTR
came in a data only model, or with a switch module, so the record deck could be used for both video and data recording. The tape deck was also sold stand alone as a giga bit recorder to record and playback raw data. Toshiba made the video tape for the VTR. The high price of the video tape limited the use of the VTR.
