The advantages of high packing density in a digital VTR are expected to be a low tape consumption, reduced size and weight of the equipment and easier cassettability. We can also expect that higher packing density will make possible the perfection of the digital recording capability of high definition TV systems. For these reasons, the present authors have recently been concerned with the feasibility of digital video tape recording attaching great importance to higher packing density [1-3]. We now have a much clearer idea of the potential of digital video tape recording than previously, although much work remains to be done.
