Perhaps "DCR-HC96E"?

If yes, that is a miniDV tape based camcorder capable of capturing standard definition video. The "E" designation = PAL video standard.

That "video cassette" is digital tape (the "DV" in miniDV = Digital Video). Getting that video into a computer depends on the computer and available connections that are either Firewire or IEEE1394.

Tell us what computer, operating system and version of the operating system... If there is no firewire port, other ways are possible. USB or USB-firewire converter/adapter things will not work.

"R.Proffit" supplied a link to the NTSC video standard DCR-HC96 - everything is the same except frame rate. Here's the link to the "E" variant:
