Uncompressed High Definition Formats

HD requires extremely high data rates (around 1.4 Gbps). There are no camcorder
formats currently available for recording uncompressed HD video. High-capacity,
general-purpose digital tape formats like D-6 can be used in combination with camera
heads and digital telecine machines capable of outputting uncompressed RGB and
component HD video data. High-speed disk arrays can also be used to record
uncompressed HD video.
