It was the same with consumer betamax camcorders. They wanted to use a MUCH smaller head drum than standard...They did, but it used some oddball method of recording that was too difficult/expensive to play back off that mini drum, but played fine on a stand alone deck...Part of what hurt beta in the format wars.
