LTO Ultrium
DATA CARTRIDGE
Fujifilm’s Linear Tape-Open (LTO) Ultrium 3 is the latest generation of tape technology
based on Fujifilm’s proprietary ATOMM Technology. Fujifilm’s LTO Ultrium 3 tape format
has been optimized for high-capacity and performance with outstanding reliability—with
up to 800GB (2:1 compression; 400GB native) storage on a single cartridge. LTO Ultrium 3
data cartridges also deliver impressive transfer speed rates of 80-160 MB/second (2:1
compressed mode; 40-80MB native), which can save time when accessing critical data.

TECHNOLOGY
ATOMM Simultaneous Dual-Coating Technology
ATOMM (Advanced super Thin-layer and high-Output Metal Media) is a proprietary
Fujifilm technology that has changed the history of the magnetic recording industry.
Fujifilm began manufacturing dual-coated magnetic media in 1989 and ATOMM
dual-coated media in 1992. For ATOMM, Fujifilm’s special die coating head
simultaneously applies two separate unique layers, one magnetic and one nonmagnetic. ATOMM incorporates the nonmagnetic lower layer and an ultra-thin upper
layer of high-energy metal particles applied simultaneously to base film, resulting
in media with extremely low self-demagnetization, dramatically increased
high-frequency output, and significantly higher recording density.
WORM Technology
LTO Ultrium 3 is the first generation in the LTO Ultrium Roadmap to support WORM (Write Once Read
Many) functionality. The LTO 3 specifications include the ability for WORM enabled and non-WORM
enabled drives to co-exist and provides users with very cost effective means of storing data in a
non-erasable, non-rewriteable format.
Fujifilm Servo Technology
LTO Ultrium technology relies heavily on timing-based, high-precision servo control to achieve its
remarkable performance levels. Fujifilm’s history as a pioneer in innovative servo-writing
technologies makes it a natural choice in this field.
