The tape offers excellent reliability and durability, even under the harshest of electronic editing conditions. It has Outstanding Image and Audio Fidelity, which is demonstrated by high output characteristics over a wide range of frequencies. The fine Ceramic Armor Metal Particles produce superior physical characteristics, and corrosion- and oxidation-resistance qualities. The cassette shell has a high-precision guidance system, and is made from a heat-resistant, shockproof ABS resin. A special substance is added to the resin to eliminate static electricity. The tape is supplied in a hard plastic album case.
