LTO-3 A-Series
High Performance Tape Drive
Enhanced for Professional Video
In professional video and rich media environments, video tape is
no longer an efficient way to archive, and disk storage rapidly
fills to capacity – especially with the transition to high-definition
formats. The Quantum LTO-3 A-Series data tape storage
products are the ideal archiving solution designed for file-based
workflows, easy access, and long-term reliability.
The LTO-3 A-Series is the first data tape family specifically
enhanced for professional video and broadcast requirements.
It combines the convenience and accessibility of traditional
video tape with the cost-effective performance, reliability and
flexibility of Quantum data tape drive technology.
The LTO-3 A-Series offer up to 400 GB of removable networked
storage and a tape-based file system that is MXF-aware, which
means video tape-like access to subclips by timecode and fast
access to metadata. With the LTO-3 A-Series each tape cartridge
carries its own file system directory , allowing drag and drop
access by applications and hardware running on multiple
operating systems such as Windows and MAC OSX. This self
contained file system simplifies content exchange and transfer
between facilities and workgroups.
For sharing content and video assets among sites or workgroups
and for long-term, reliable storage, the LTO-3 A family delivers
the ideal archiving solution for the most sophisticated video
environments. Best of all, it’s brought to you by a proven leader
in storage: Quantum.
