Hitachi Maxell (日立マクセル, Hitachi Makuseru), or Maxell, is a Japanese company which manufactures consumer electronics. The company’s most notable products are batteries — the company’s name is a contraction of “maximum capacity dry cell” — and recording media, including audio cassettes and video tapes, and recordable optical discs like CD-R/RW and DVD±RW. The company also sells electronics accessories, like CD and DVD laser cleaners.
Videotape is a means of recording images and sound onto magnetic tape as opposed to movie film. In virtually all cases, a helical scan video head rotates against the moving tape to record the data in two dimensions, because video signals have a very high bandwidth, and static heads would require extremely high tape speeds. Video tape is used in both video tape recorders (VTRs or, more common, video cassette recorders (VCRs)) and video cameras. Tape is a linear method of storing information, and since nearly all video recordings made nowadays are digital, it is expected to gradually lose importance as non-linear/random access methods of storing digital video data are becoming more common.
