The worldwide standardization of digital video recording necessitates in addition to standard mechanical parameters a standardized magnetic track pattern on the tape. It is necessary to specify the location of each picture element within the track, the channel code and the type of error protection. These parameters should all be discussed with the aim of finding an economic solution to the problems of digital video tape recording.
