The Changing Role of Data Tape in Media Workflows
Thursday, 13 December 2011
Webinar login details will be provided with your registration confirmation
The latest generation of LTO data tape technology, LTO-5, enables the creation of a second partition on the tape which can be used for indexing the tape’s content. Linear Tape File System (LTFS), announced with LTO-5, is an enabling technology exploiting the dual partition feature. LTFS creates a direct access construct for LTO-5 tape systems. This SMPTE PDA Now session will describe the LTO tape technology, summarize how LTFS works and outline how LTO-5 is being utilized in the industry.
