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.

For the past 100 years, the people of the Society of Motion Pictures and Television Engineers (SMPTE, pronounced “simp-tee”) have sorted out the details of many significant advances in entertainment technology, from the introduction of “talkies” and color television to HD and UHD (4K, 8K) TV. Since its founding in 1916, the Society has earned an Oscar® and multiple Emmy® Awards for its work in advancing moving-imagery education and engineering across the communications, technology, media, and entertainment industries. The Society has developed thousands of standards, recommended practices, and engineering guidelines, more than 800 of which are currently in force.

SMPTE’s global membership today includes 7,000 members, who are motion-imaging executives, engineers, creative and technology professionals, researchers, scientists, educators, and students. A partnership with the Hollywood Professional Association (HPA®) connects SMPTE and its membership with the professional community of businesses and individuals who provide the expertise, support, tools, and infrastructure for the creation and finishing of motion pictures, television programs, commercials, digital media, and other dynamic media content. Information on joining SMPTE is available at
