BetaCam, Betacam is a professional video format. 
The original Betacam format was released in 1982 with true broadcast quality of 300 lines of horizontal resolution.  It is an analog component video with 300 lines of horizontal Y luminance and 120 lines of chominance resolution (compared to about 30 lines of chromanance for Betamax and VHS).  Betacam was limited to the smaller 60 minute cassette tapes.

Betacam and Betamax use the same videotape cassette construction and blank tapes can be interchangably recorded, but the video formats are very different. Betacam SP tapes use a different metal-fomulated magnetic layer and should not be used in consumer Betamax equipment; they will cause pre-mature head wear in betamax equipment.

BetaCam SP (Superior Performance) was released in 1986 and increased the horizontal resolution to 340 lines largely due to new metal formulated tapes.  Betacam SP equipment received many reliability and feature upgrades and larger 90 minute tapes became available.
