With current practice of using 4K and 8K sources in video production, storage, management, simple retrieval and playout of this archive footage is critical.
Unlike in the era of videotape, today's file-based workflows make it harder just to shelve the original data on the recorded media. Projects also take up more disk space. Once a project is finished, seeing it stored on a stack of hard disks is not unusual. HDDs are not designed for long-term storage unplugged, without the platters spinning. And when the data is needed, there is endless potential for issues; HDDs may not be recognized when connected, or if they are, the data may be corrupted. Fast access LTO tape offers a reliable and cost effective mechanism for bulk storage and retrieval of media.
The FOR-A - LTO product range interfaces with current broadcast equipment for real-time ingest and playback via standard HD-SDI as well as transfers via Ethernet at over 300MBs.
A multi-format LTO-7 archiving recorder offers a generous 6 TB of internal storage for backup, the LTR-200HS7’s ability to support broad video codecs accommodates many archiving needs. Useful in both archiving and exchange of recorded material or programs, highlights of this full-featured LTFs-based recorder unit include HD/SD-SDI input/output, broadcast-quality codecs, and MXF (OP-1a) wrapping and unwrapping. MXF or MOV files on LTO tape can also be used with NLE systems.
Store up to 6 TB of video and audio media on LTO-7 tapes when used in uncompressed mode. Fast maximum transfer of 300 MB/s (2.4 Gbps), using an optional high-speed interface. Be prepared for high-capacity 4K archiving and backup, Automatic proxy video generation while archiving.
Start with simple system with LTS-70 and LTS-MAM and expand on your demand.
LTS-70 deployment in a network environment dramatically streamlines workflows that involve backup, archiving, or repurposing of material.
