The evolution of video tape recording has been typified by new formats being introduced that have either represented performance improvements or an extension of features and facilities. The paper describes a PAL Composite Digital VTR format that attempts to fill one such requirement. That is improved performance whilst maintaining all the features that previous formats have established. The requirements of a successful format are first defined, and then the format derived to fulfil these requirements is examined.
